Delivery to customers

The logistics involved in delivering finished products depends on the distance from the customer, the geographic position of our sites and the means of transport available: rail, truck or barge. Whenever possible, we opt for a means of transport that minimizes the impact on local communities and is as environmentally friendly as possible. 

Lhoist designs intermodal solutions; for example, linking the plant by train to a port terminal from which loads continue by boat. This enables products to be transported over longer distances most effeciently. Plants can also be connected by train to a terminal and the local markets are then supplied using the road network. Logistics is one of our key differentiators. Our industrial network consists of multiple plants so that we are well positioned to ensure uninterrupted delivery to customers at all times.
