Count on us for your Chemical & Petrochemical Shipments

Plastics, fertilisers, medical equipment, and detergents are just some of the products that rely on petrochemical shipments. However, shipping both chemicals and petrochemicals internationally can be a complex process due to the different safety, regulatory, and logistical considerations involved.

Different countries have different regulatory requirements for the import and export of chemicals. Equally many chemicals and petrochemicals are classified as hazardous materials. This means that some commodities cannot be imported into certain countries, while others can be imported only after an extensive amount of due diligence checks.

This means we can provide customers with careful, precise, and robust processes that ensure any hazardous materials are shipped safely and in compliance with relevant regulations. Beyond this, our global team is also on hand to deal with any contingency wherever you are shipping around the globe.
