Minerals Case

Customer:                           Borates and talcum powder supplier
Product:  Talcum powder
Challenge:  Just in time delivery
Solution:  Floating stock


The Challenge
One of our customers has a quite varying demand of talcum powder and limited stock capacity. They were looking for a just in time delivery solution at the lowest possible costs.


     
Our Solution
We chose the intermodal floating stock concept, storing supplies close to the buyer for flexible delivery. Such an intermodal supply moreover ensures reduced logistic costs.

How does it work?
We load the talcum powder in southern Europe. We take the product to the Benelux by rail, from where the containers are transported to the Van den Bosch Transporten transhipment terminal in Bergen op Zoom. Our terminal in Bergen op Zoom is located near our customer, so that we can easily meet last minute demand. Through this intermodal solution we can also optimise the payload. Moreover, the stocking of silo containers is a lot cheaper than stocking silo trailers. Van den Bosch Transporten reduces the total supply chain costs to a minimum in this way.
