HOYER Services presented at the 27th German Logistics Congress in Berlin
Although the chemical industry - the most important sector for HOYER - fell off in 2009, HOYER was able to slightly increase its market share of European-wide logistic solutions. In addition, the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) department managed to increase its turnover compared with the previous year, thanks to new business opportunities.
With SCS, HOYER offers the customers inter-divisional services such as contract, intra- and on-site logistics, outsourcing and consulting. These full-service features are also on hand for small containers (IBCs).
Apart from its general range of services, HOYER is focussed in Berlin on presenting best practice solutions. HOYER has recently assumed responsibility for loading polyethylene granules for a well-known petrochemical company. For this purpose, a standard 20-foot container is fitted with an inlet and filled with granules using a special belt thrower loading procedure. HOYER uses a system by which the loading device can remain on site of the customer. This way considerable daily increases are achieved.
Another example is the combined operation of two separate logistic sites under a single management across two countries (Germany and France). Some 50 employees are deployed at different sites as required for operations such as filling, storage, consignment and dispatch as well as bulk loading in order to cope with unscheduled order volumes on time and at no extra expense.
In close collaboration with the customer on site, HOYER has optimised processes and in this way increased the transhipment capacity of the intermodal terminal considerably.
The Dutch company ELD (European Liquid Drumming) based in Oosterhout, which is 100 percent HOYER since the beginning of the year, offers various logistics services for liquid products. Processes were recently optimised and customers can now benefit from improved services and increased quality.
