Chemicals Long-distance

Thanks to its pan-European organisation, Geodis BM proposes one of the best long-distance road haulage offerings on the market.

Safety, service quality and competitiveness: these three commitments are linchpins of Geodis BM’s long-distance road haulage offering in the chemicals sector. The haulier has built up this rare competitive advantage by drawing on its pan-European organisation: 150 specialist drivers, 120 tractors (all Euro V and VI models) and some 140 tankers deployed in ten countries. This commitment to provide pooled resources enables it to handle nearly 20,000 flows per year on this market, where safety is not a matter to be taken lightly.

Flow engineering
Activity is overseen by a team of experts – the central planning unit – based at Geodis BM’s head office in Méry (SE France). These engineers have a complete real-time overview of flows ordered by customers of the network’s 15 branch offices working in chemicals. They incorporate each new transport order into the general transport plan in order to ensure overall coherence. "The challenge is to find the most efficient combination for the customer, and that involves eliminating empty mileage, setting up loops, picking the most suitable driver, etc.", central planning unit manager Christophe Lotti explains.

In this way the customer benefits from first-hand knowledge of purchasing and procurement policies in the chemicals industry. "Working on the pan-European road haulage market makes us astute observers of market trends and helps us foresee needs very accurately", long-distance manager Vincent Bertin concludes.
