Big Pic: Chemical logistics infographic
Transport Resources has created an infographic charting the complexities and various stages of the chemical logistics supply chain.
“When you are planning the transport of bulk chemicals, you should be aware of several items. During the supply chain, chemicals start out at the supplier where they are pumped into tanks for transportation,” says Transport Resources.
“After their journey to the buyer, they are usually stored in warehouses to be manufactured or resold. When transporting chemicals, many DOT and HAZMAT requirements are in place for everyone’s safety including the supplier, buyer, and people who will encounter the chemical transportation on the road. Before beginning the chemical transportation process, make sure you take the proper steps to find the proper trailer for your needs and ensure everyone’s safety.”
