Products for or from factories in the chemical industry are probably what TCL handles most. We act as a freight forwarder for chemicals, but also as a European distribution center.
Chemical products have a lot of particularities that will define handling the product. The nature of the product and your business will also determine the information you need to have at hand. Rubber products for example will need a different approach than PET granulate, or glass fibers, or liquids packed in IBC or drums … TCL gained experience on all sorts of chemicals and can offer guidance and assistance with your shipments.
In spite of the large variety of chemicals we will determine transport and/or distribution, according to your specific needs.
Custom made WMS
When you offer chemicals to be transported or distributed, of course you will want to know specific details of your cargo at all times. TCL provides an online WMS that is tailor-made to your needs. Especially with chemicals, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Our approach makes sure you will get only relevant information. As an example: TCL works for an Asian producer of plastic film for packing material. For this client, it is important to know the micron thickness (μ) of the film they still have available in our warehouse. Our custom-made WMS offers an overview at all times, and makes sure the producer can confidently deliver their packing material to their European clients.
Added value to your business
Because of our extensive experience with chemicals, we understand your specific needs and those of your buyers. We understand the urgency and can determine the most suitable shipping and transportation service. Furthermore, we can advise you on composing an optimized supply chain model for finished products and raw materials.
While proposing a supply chain model, we take into consideration different factors:
– available shipping services by ocean, air, other modes of transport
– possible import duties, taxes, levies, but also preferences and restitutions.
– in- and outward processing
– tax free zones
Well informed about your needs, we can act in your best interest and in the best interest of your clients. While we take care of the whole process, you can focus on your own sales and commerce, without the additional stress that comes with running your own logistic site.
