C.H. Robinson Worldwide has formed a new division which will provide logistics services to chemical manufacturers and distributors globally.
ChemSolutions offers chemical bulk shipping, safety and sustainability, freight forwarding, customs brokerage, vendor and supplier compliance, global trade management, and multi-modal transportation to chemical shippers.
“Chemical logistics is a perfect fit for us as C.H. Robinson has a long history in specialty logistics ranging from time sensitive products, produce, high value shipments and project business,” said Taylor Nicks, manager of ChemSolutions, in a statement. “Because of the inherent risks in transporting chemicals it is imperative that chemical manufactures align themselves with logistics providers that have industry expertise in handling chemicals and programs in place.”
Each C.H. Robinson employee that works within ChemSolutions must complete a certification training program before handling chemical shipments, the Eden Prairie, Minn.-based company said.
