P&O Ferrymasters, a major European logistics provider and supply chain specialist has designed a new logistics solution for leading chemical distributor Brenntag Europe in Ireland.
The solution stems from the two companies working together on a project to transport hazardous chlorine cylinders from Runcorn in Cheshire to Ireland. Successful trials led to further talks which resulted in a solution and this new partnership.
John Campbell, P&O Ferrymasters’ Commercial Manager, said: We were approached by Brenntag Europe to design and implement a tailor-made solution for a specialised area of transportation. We pride ourselves on offering customers an innovative and bespoke approach to solving their logistics challenges. We designed and manufactured a custom-built frame for Brenntag to carry the cylinders on a dedicated trailer operating on a roundtrip basis. Once the full cylinders have been transported to Dublin, the trailers are immediately reloaded with the empties and shipped back into Liverpool.
P&O Ferrymasters always strives to find the perfect solution for its customers. We have been able to forge an important new commercial relationship by demonstrating our ability to provide specially designed solutions to individual logistics problems in a demanding specialist sector.
