Brenntag France, part of the Brenntag Group, a global market leader in chemical distribution, has appointed Norbert Dentressangle to provide a dedicated fleet and driver hire solution via its Red Inside service.
Brenntag operates by repackaging large-scale volumes into smaller quantities and providing deliveries of less-than full truckload quantities. The company has 17 distribution centres across France, with 100,000 sq m of warehousing and delivers over 800,000 tons of chemicals a year.
Supported by Norbert Dentressangle’s Red Inside service, Brenntag provides a link between chemical manufacturers and chemical users by developing tailor-made distribution solutions for industrial and specialty chemicals.
In order to ensure secure shipment of its wide range of products, Brenntag selected Norbert Dentressangle as its partner due to the company’s reputation for safe delivery by its highly trained drivers and in particular its expertise in transporting products classed as dangerous.
The flexibility of the Red Inside dedicated fleet and driver hire service allows variations in resources employed based on volumes shipped and the optimum transport route to deliver a cost effective operation.
Commenting on the new agreement, Hervé Montjotin, Norbert Dentressangle Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are delighted to team up with Brenntag on this major supply chain project. Our staff are totally committed to ensuring that this operation sets a market benchmark for the industry in terms of operational efficiency and service quality."
