Experts in the international transport of chemical products

The Chemicals business unit of Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium thoroughly prepares every part of the transport (import and export) of chemical products: from the product location to the port and then on to the final destination. Each route is carefully studied by a skilled dedicated team, including the complete customs administration. Director Bruno Vitali introduces the business unit.

Bruno Vitali is Chemicals Business Unit Director and knows the maritime sector like the back of his hand, not in the least because of a history as a ship's captain and years of experience in the industrial world.

Expertise in the chemical industry

“The added value of our Chemicals business unit translates into a know-how of the various chemical raw materials, but also in our expertise in handling and transporting (shipping, storage...) non-hazardous and hazardous chemicals, with the exception of radioactive and explosive products.”

“We have all the expertise in-house. Sealogis knows the chemical world through and through, from SMEs to multinationals, their products and their managers. In addition, we have excellent contacts with the right carriers, transport companies and other involved parties such as customs, port services, shipping companies and storage companies. Thanks to our expertise, we can offer our customers the ideal technical and economic solution.”

The Chemicals Division of Sealogis Belgium takes care of everything. From the chemical plant to the port, from the port to the vessel, from the vessel to the final destination, whether the chemical goods are packed or transported in bulk.

Complete supply chain up to and including warehousing

“Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium offers complete expertise in chemicals, including the management of the entire Supply Chains,” says Bruno Vitali.  “With advanced tools, we provide a customised solution across the entire supply chain with storage locations and cross-dock operations. Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium also offers logistics and supply chain services and manages about 20,000 m² of its own warehouse space for that purpose.”

Port of Antwerp is world leader in chemicals

Bruno recognises the importance for Sealogis Belgium of the proximity of the chemical cluster in the port of Antwerp.

“The port of Antwerp is the spearhead of the Flemish economy. It is the second largest chemical port in the world after Houston. Antwerp is centrally located, multimodally accessible and very much in line with the chemical industry and its customers.” (Bruno Vitali, Business Unit director Chemicals)
