An international chemical company
Our customer is one of the world’s largest chemical companies. The product portfolio of this major international corporation ranges from chemicals and materials to industrial solutions, surface technologies, nutrition and care as well as agricultural solutions.
After decades of cooperation in subareas, CobanturBoltas has been working for the client across the entire portfolio since 2010. The initiative came from the company’s founder. This bold proactive initiative was to more than pay off later on. With the help of our high-performance fleet and customized solutions, the group’s own plants as well as third-party destinations are supplied on time (e.g. with paints & coatings for the automotive industry, thermal goods, etc.). And not only in Turkey: Since 2018, transports have also been going to Greece. About 60% of the deliveries are intermodal. The intermodal share would be even higher if it were not for the very specific requirements regarding the transport of thermo goods.
The biggest challenge with this customer is the scheduling: The individual plants to be supplied are not only numerous, they are also distributed rather decentrally within the two countries. This means that comprehensive and, above all, efficient delivery requires the most precise planning. In addition, the Safety Quality Assessment System (SQAS) places particularly high demands on logistics service providers in the chemical industry. The verification of safety, health, environmental and quality processes go far beyond the requirements of ISO 9001.
Since 2010, CobanturBoltas has been a strategic partner of this big player in the chemical sector, providing greater efficiency in consolidation and intermodality. In addition, we also advise decision-makers on market developments and provide impetus for the further development of chemical logistics. Today, we look back on a long-standing relationship with this premium customer. What began with the exclusive supply of Turkey and the Middle East was expanded in 2018 with the addition of transport services to Greece.
