CHEMICALS

Benefit from Our Chemicals Expertise

You need to optimise your supply chain performance, improve predictability and mitigate potential problems. Our experts take full control of advanced chemical transports, ensuring the safety and security of your chemical product.

The Chemical sector is a very fragmented and volatile market characterised by different requirements. The DHL Chemicals experts are aware of these differences within the sector and act accordingly. We understand trends like consolidation and specialisation. In case you need immediate capacities e.g. for your batch production we are usually quickly able to arrange the required loading metres. With our outbound logistics solutions we also serve the demands of your customers.
