MOL Logistics is not only complying with the strict laws and regulations, but also going the extra mile when arranging transport. We know customs carry out additional checks on these products and what formalities you need to arrange. Qualified in-house specialists know which packaging is safest for transporting your chemicals and how to handle them.
“Chemicals for the leather industry belong to a separate category. One of our customers asked us to optimize their transports. About 40% of their products are being specified with a dangerous goods classification. In addition, their products have to be shipped in temperature-controlled conditions during certain periods. This combination require high demands on transport and associated lead times. To tackle this, we send the chemicals worldwide by air freight, a fast solution that also allows temperature-controlled options. If a shipment within Europe is in a hurry, we immediately set up an express transport so that the goods arrive exactly on time. To save costs within Europe, we opt for groupage when possible. For less restricted cargo shipping worldwide, we investigated the possibility of sending containers by sea freight. To facilitate loading at the customer’s location, we place empty containers in a timely manner. In this way, they load when it suits them.”
Many products are based on chemicals. Therefore the demand for these products is high. This results in large shipping volumes by road, on board of aircrafts and containers. MOL Logistics is able to take care of transport and warehousing. We also offer support in security screening of shipments and additional services such as (re)labelling, (re)packaging and tagging with the necessary data.
Correct packaging is essential for safe transport of chemicals. Do you also require support with other activities besides transport and storage of your products? Your local MOL Logistics teams will guide you and unburden your own staff in means of time or qualifications. For example: screening and testing of products, labelling, barcoding, product recalls, repairs or serial number checks. Our staff can take care of order picking on all levels: per pallet or piece. We gladly assist you with handling incoming and outgoing goods flows or inventory management.
Especially in case of urgent transport, it is important to exchange the right information to be sure the substances are authorized for transport. With an extensive network of certified partners, we can arrange fast-time deliveries throughout Europe or Worldwide, supported by our online track & trace module.
