FMCG diversification

Procurement service provider Freight Traders is continuing to diversify into sectors away from its fast-moving consumer goods and has recently completed a bulk tanker tender in the chemical sector for Rohm and Haas Company – one of the world’s largest producers of acrylic monomers. The tender, for a combination of inter-company and customer deliveries transporting monomer from nine locations throughout Europe, reduces Rohm and Haas’ freight costs by hundreds of thousands of euros.

Freight Traders, UK/ROI market manager, Mark Parsons, says: “Our processes are very flexible and we are not limited to any sector. Complicated specifications do not present a problem and as long as something can be specified, it can form part of the tender.”

Rohm and Haas bulk logistics manager Nigel Turner says: “It would have been impossible for us to collect and process this many offers manually, and freight Traders dramatically reduced the time and effort to run the tender.”
