Companies in the Oil and Gas as well as Petrochemical industries are facing many challenges today. The fulfilment of legal requirements, compliance with industrial standards and the increasingly stringent quality specifications of customers often require a great deal of effort and are reflected in rising production costs, among other things. This might explain a growing demand for custom processing. Haltermann Carless' production plant in Harwich, UK, focuses on tailor-made customer solutions and is ideally equipped for custom processing.
Modern supply chain management today is digital. It is the only way to effectively plan and control value chains. This is particularly important for chemical logistics: Intelligent analysis and tracking tools ensure optimum transparency in the tracking of sensitive goods and maximum reliability in planning.
In today's globalised world, the supply chain is more than just logistics and thus the delivery, handling and storage of products. Companies are looking more and more closely at their own supply chains, their logistics and their suppliers. Because for customers the promise of delivery is playing an increasingly important role, and especially in the chemical industry this means comprehensive, individual and above all flexible services. Read how Haltermann Carless sees itself as an integral part of the value-added chain with innovation, cost, quality and environmental awareness.
Nowadays competitiveness and success are dependent on a variety of factors. A key factor is fully operational and active management of the value chain. In this article we will explain what supply chain management is to Haltermann Carless as a leading niche company in the chemical industry, and how we implement it.
