Food ingredients and raw materials

 

We can provide you with the global network, transparency and timely flow of raw materials and food ingredients to your production facilities. And we can also handle the subsequent warehousing of your finished products and distribution to your customers.

Our warehousing and cross-docking facilities comply with all relevant requirements and regulations, such as:

  • ISO standards
  • GMP guidelines
  • GDP guidelines

 

We have specialised sites operating the most stringent procedures according to:

  • Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) programme
  • American Institute of Baking (AIB International) consolidated standards
  • Safety & Quality Assessment System (SQAS)

 

Machinery and components

We offer specialist expertise for managing your heavy and oversized machinery and components that often require special handling equipment and custom packaging. Our value-added services include assembly and disassembly, special packaging, repacking, warehousing, product modifications prior to delivery and freight management.

Outsource the management of your supply chain to us and let us help optimise your inventory levels so you can focus on supply chain execution.
 

Packaged chemicals

We can provide you with cost-effective warehousing for packaged chemicals including the most common types of hazardous goods, even if such goods are only a small part of your product range. Our dangerous goods warehouses comply with the relevant safety regulations for hazardous goods.

Our certified storage facilities offer you the economies of scale of non-dangerous goods warehouses with the added benefit of an integrated solution for dangerous or hazardous goods. Our skilled staff or external partners are thoroughly trained to ensure strict compliance with environmental and safety standards.
 

Warehouse automation

We offer you broad expertise in warehouse automation. Based on thorough analysis of your specific situation, we design and implement a tailored solution – either as a turn-key project in your own dedicated facility or in one of our warehouses.

Warehouse automation is an engineering challenge, but adoption is key to its ultimate success. In addition to sharing our expertise to help you solve the specific technical and logistics challenges involved in your warehouse automation, we also assist and support the change management process following implementation.

Warehousing

We provide multi-user and dedicated warehouses to a number of segments in the industrial sector. The segments include the food ingredients, packaging and chemicals, and machinery, components and industrial spare parts industries. 

Tailored storage and packing solutions

We offer multiple storage possibilities in multi-user or dedicated warehouses, whether in bulk or on shelves. We also offer facilities for storage of hazardous goods and use your preferred picking principles, perform repacking and labelling, manage in-house solutions, and more. In other words, tailored solutions to meet your individual needs.

Freight management

We handle the planning, execution and administration of all your transport operations and select the optimum solution for you according to consignment size, weight and destination. And we can provide solutions via road, rail, air and sea, including express deliveries. Our IT systems are integrated with our carriers' systems to provide complete transparency: Track & Trace allows you to monitor your shipments from pick-up to delivery.

We can manage your return logistics, whether commercial return flows or the return of rejected or defective goods. We also offer cross-docking services comprising short-term storage and consolidation of shipments for delivery when the required items are available.
