Chemical

Chemical Transport

More Information

The chemical sector is an essential area of business for all branches of industry – whether it involves processing plastics, food production, the pharmaceutical industry, automobile manufacturing or engineering.  

Chemistry is life: countless industrial sectors depend on products made by the chemical industry. Whether these are liquid or solid, chemical substances are the building blocks for foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals and all kinds of everyday items. Logistics services companies can only handle chemicals carefully if they have extensive specialist knowledge and the correct equipment.

Safety first

We can offer you comprehensive transport and value added solutions as a specialist in handling products made by the chemical industry. We can even transport hazardous substances with or without temperature controls and comply with the highest quality and safety standards (SQAS, ISO 9001 and 14001). Long-term quality checks, employee training courses, carrier management (and more) complete our range of services. We not only offer transparent information about the progress of any consignment (track & trace), but also can provide active reports within projects.

Pharma & Healthcare

Pharma & Healthcare

More Information

The standards within our portfolio of services are dictated by our high degree of responsibility towards those requiring pharmaceutical products or medical engineering equipment. We comply with the statutory requirements of national markets when we act as a specialist partner. Tasks assigned to us by industry are carried out with the necessary expertise and care along the complete supply chain.

Transporting active ingredients around the globe

The active ingredients for many pharmaceutical products, including headache medication, come from Asia. We will supply you with the liquid or solid Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) by seagoing vessel, allowing further processing in Europe, for example. Medical engineering goods move in the opposite direction through our global network of business sites and partners, by air freight if required, improving the ability of doctors to diagnose diseases across the world.

Pharmaceutical manufacturer’s and wholesale dealer’s license

Successful pharmaceutical logistics is largely defined by the need to comply with the most stringent regulations. Therefore our company-wide GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) quality assurance system and ISO 13485 are used at all our warehouses that supply production facilities. We have the pharmaceutical manufacturer’s and wholesale dealer’s license required in Germany, which obliges us to work in line with the GDP (Good Distribution Practice) guidelines and allows us to process secondary packaging materials. The clean-room cabinets at our logistics centers enable our trained employees to take samples and so prevent glitches in your supply chain that would trigger additional costs.

Highest standards for our truck equipment and availability is decisive

When it comes to transporting pharmaceuticals, we only work with our preferred partner program service providers and carriers, who meet the highest technical specifications in terms of equipment. This has to comply with the latest standards to maintain the cold chain, particularly for temperature-controlled traffic in this sector. Loading area cleanness is also subject to constant checks.

We provide extensive transport services using our existing European network; we comply with the highest quality standards and adhere to the requirements and benchmarks applicable to the sector (SQAS, ISO 9001 and 14001). Our network can also transport nearly all hazardous substances, barring a few exceptions. Do you need dry ice? Then get in touch with us!

Our high-tech specialist service uses its expertise and proper apparatus to safely distribute laboratory and diagnosis equipment, since their sensitivity calls for great care when conveying and transshipping them. Rhenus Midi Data technical staff can also install medical engineering products at medical practices and hospitals.

Fashion

Fashion Logistics

More Information

We are an experienced logistics service provider for entrepreneurs in the fashion and lifestyle sector. Nobody understands how the rapidly changing market affects these sectors better than we do. At Rhenus Road, we are fully aware of how vitally important the continual development, innovation and optimisation of our services is for our clients. This constant improvement is essential for tackling the recurring challenges faced by our clients and taking all their worries off their hands.

One area in which Rhenus is optimising its logistics services is the blurring of the lines between physical and online retail. Other trends that we anticipate on behalf of our clients in the fashion and lifestyle sectors are new consumer and production markets, faster and more frequent introduction of new items, the reduction in transport of hanging clothes and the increasing demand for preparation of consignments for distribution in the country of origin.  

Efficient management of the clothing chain

These developments require a flexible, IT-driven and rapidly responding vertical chain. One which is not only efficient to manage but also gives the client full insight into it. Rhenus Road possesses all of the tools and knowledge needed to determine the correct strategy and methods for transport, logistics/warehousing and distribution. To boost efficiency in routing, stock management, pick & pack and distribution, you can monitor all stages in the chain via a central dashboard for your supply chain manager. This enables your supply chain manager to optimally manage the chain, save on back-office activities and quickly respond to market trends and influences.

Fast Fashion Transport Turkey

For many years, Turkey has been a leading nation in the production of clothing for the Dutch market. Since 2008, Rhenus Road kept a close track on the trend in which production activities were transferred from Turkey to a variety of Asian countries. The main reason for this trend were the lower wage costs in these Asian countries. Yet interestingly in 2011 the production of clothing in Turkey again began to increase notably, resulting in clothing being transported more often from there to the Netherlands. The Dutch fashion sector is fond of Turkey due to the shorter lead times for orders, the lower minimum order amounts, the simpler customs procedures and lower transport costs compared to Asian countries, especially those in the Far East.  

Suitable road transport services to and from Turkey
As Rhenus Road identified this development at a very early stage, we are able to fully capitalise upon it. As a result, we now offer optimal services based on fast road transport links to and from Turkey.

The fashion sector places unique demands on logistics service providers, which is how businesses in this sector distinguish themselves from those in the general cargo segment. Rhenus Road knows these wishes and requirements through and through, so if our clients say their shops need to be restocked with new items before weekend sales begin, then we can make this promise. If an extremely short lead time is required for transport from Turkey, we take action to ensure this is met. For these purposes, we have developed a rapid service known as Fast Fashion Transport.

Fast Fashion Transport
Clients who make use of our Fast Fashion Transport service are guaranteed that their consignment of items will be sent from Istanbul and Izmir to the Netherlands within four days. In practice, this means clothing produced by Saturday afternoon in Turkey will be delivered to our clients in the Netherlands by the following Wednesday. Such initiatives ensure that our clients can sort and distribute the items before the weekend and restock their physical and online shops by Friday at the latest.
