Ahlers Chemical Logistics: beyond value-added logistics
Welcome to the future of logistics in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries
Value Added Logistics
Offering the highest quality value-added logistics for the chemicals industry is one thing. Opening up exciting venues for growth and identifying new opportunities for optimisation while doing so, is another.
But that is exactly what Ahlers does every day.
State-of-the-art value-added logistics is just the beginning
Ahlers' specialised services and infrastructure guarantee the highest standards when it comes to safety, health, environment and quality. But what makes Ahlers unique is our ability to apply these standards to the entire logistics spectrum from transport, storage, processing and (re)packaging as part of a comprehensive service package fully adapted to your needs.
A few examples of what Ahlers has to offer:

A true logistics partner for the chemical industry in the Benelux
Specialist logistics providers often cannot provide the full range of specialised services you need to add value to your business. Which is where Ahlers comes in, applying a wide variety of specialist solutions and over a century of logistics experience to engineer and optimise chemical supply chains. If necessary, we can even build the infrastructure you need, to the exacting standards you demand.
“We make sure the same high standards for health, safety, environment and quality are applied and maintained for every link in the supply chain,” says Roel Vanmaele, Managing Director of Ahlers (Western Europe).
Logistics Communities: a new direction in supply chain optimisation
Supply chains in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries are typically already highly integrated. So how can you still achieve genuine optimisation? By working together!
Ahlers' industry expertise allows us to identify potential opportunities for optimisation and facilitate collaboration on a variety of levels: from bundled shipping and warehousing to shared sites for processing and co-production, group purchasing and even shared back-end processes for transport and handling…
Sounds futuristic? We at Ahlers believe (and can prove) that collaboration via logistics communities offers very real and durable opportunities for enterprises today.
