With our network of tank terminals, strategically located along major shipping routes, we enable our customers to seize business opportunities around the world. Our international network of tank terminals enables our customers to seamlessly optimize and link their supply chains. In doing so, our tank terminals play a key role in connecting our customers’ products to their markets. From this perspective, linking product flows through strategically located ports to end-markets for the sustainable customers of the future is what drives our business. Based on marketing and customer intelligence we further shape our network by focusing on current and future product flows at locations that matter, and we defined four terminal categories that will shape our future network.
The customers we serve include national and international producers, distributors and traders of liquid bulk products. Our wide range of customers is generally active in the production, purchasing, and marketing of oil products, chemicals, gasses, biofuels, edible oils, and LNG. Based on their geographic footprint, they can be divided into three large categories; global, regional and local customers.
As an independent service provider, our core business is to provide our customers with tank storage and handling services for all liquid bulk and gaseous products. Our tank terminal concepts are tuned to our customers’ needs. Hub terminals are situated at globally strategic ports to provide market access and trade opportunities. Distribution terminals act as a point of origin for inland distribution and industrial terminals are storage centers connected via pipelines to our customers’ petrochemical production plants. At our tank terminals, we store and handle liquid bulk products for our customers; from oil products, chemicals, gasses, and biofuels, to edible oils and LNG. To store and handle products, and to maintain or change product specifications, we provide a wide range of additional services, from loading and unloading a range of transport modalities to heating, cooling, blending and customs formalities.
