Due to the nature of our products, logistics constitutes a trade in itself, requiring specialist knowledge.
Since lime, dolomite and minerals change chemically when in contact with humidity, precautions are required to handle, transport and store products that contain them. To ensure professional logistics for our customers, we have developed dedicated and reliable procedures that assure safe and correct loading and unloading.
Our logistics experts and technicians all over the world collaborate closely to find the best solution for the fastest and most effective supply of the products you purchase. Lhoist’s production facilities, as well as our storage and distribution centers, are located in the industrial heartlands of Europe and in North and South America. Via our network, we are able to guarantee consistent and expeditious deliveries using varied modes of transportation: road, rail, river, short- and deep-sea maritime networks or a multimodal approach that mixes transportation means. We have proven expertise and proficiency in the logistics domain. This is complemented by Lhoist's sophisticated VMI (Vendor Management Inventory) offerings and railcar leasing & management, supported by monitoring.
Striving to limit the environmental impact of our operations, Lhoist is continuously researching green transportation options.
