One of the leading international forwarding specialists, Rhenus Logistics, has urged businesses that work with chemical and hazardous goods to select a logistics partner with proven experience and a strong infrastructure.
Gary Dodsworth, director at Rhenus Logistics UK, comments: “The chemical logistics market is one of the world’s largest markets, expected to reach 3.6 trillion USD by 20251, and with freight demand only set to increase, first-rate logistics and supply chain management is absolutely imperative. Therefore, when looking to transport chemicals or hazardous materials, it is vital for customers to work with a logistics partner that they trust.”
With its own specialist chemical division, proven capability of pan-European transportation and state-of-the-art facilities in Basildon, Bradford, Cannock, Corby and Manchester, all of which are SQAS (Security & Quality Assessment Systems) certified, Rhenus UK has demonstrated its ability to provide top-line service, irrespective of the market.
Dodsworth continues: “At Rhenus we recognise our unique position within the market, which is why we have put our theory into action and have developed a best-practice model by appointing in-house chemical specialist teams, which provide advice and solutions on hazardous transport challenges. These teams help to ensure UK manufacturers keep up-to-date with the latest trends and legislation for the transportation of chemical products, as well as ensuring exporters are aware of the differing laws and standards for hazardous material from country to country.”
Rhenus’ dedication and commitment to the sector will be demonstrated at next year’s ChemUK in EventCity, Manchester, where it will be showcasing its global capabilities within the chemical and hazardous goods market.
