Chemical logistics


Your one-stop shop for chemical logistics

In an industry where safety, quality & flexibility are of the utmost importance, H.Essers provides a compliant and reliable one-stop shop for your chemical goods. You can count on us to transport and store your bulk and packaged dangerous and non-dangerous chemicals. With value-added services such as filling, drumming and heating, custom IT systems and an intermodal logistics network that spans Europe, we have what it takes to get your goods where you want them, how you want them. Moreover, we are a reliable and long-term partner that works with you to optimise your entire chemicals supply chain.


Having gained decades of experience working for a wide range of customers, H.Essers is a pioneer in storing and handling chemicals, especially dangerous goods. To guarantee optimum solutions and short lead times, we own chemical warehouses in Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark and Romania. These multi-customer mega-sites can be flexibly adapted to suit changing customer needs with respect to volume and type of goods. All warehouses are compliant with local and European regulations and have all necessary infrastructure in place, such as temperature control, sprinklers and spill retention. We make things easier for our customers by combining additional services (ISO tank storage, heating, filling and drumming) into a one-stop-shop concept at our mega-sites. In combination with a robust system set-up, which can easily be copied in new regions, this makes H.Essers a valued warehousing partner.

We provide these services at multiple strategic locations and develop the full range of services you need, including ISO Tank terminals, heating stations and filling lines. Other related services include quality control, sampling, blending, labelling and waste handling.
