Damco expands Hub-in-Transit programme

Global 3PL Damco has expanded its Hub-in-Transit programme with three new hubs in the UAE, Malaysia and Morocco.

The programme enables businesses to: ‘postpone decisions on final delivery date and final destination by using container transhipment hubs as decoupling points in the supply chain.’

Anthony Elwine, Damco’s global head of chemical & industrial said: “Damco customers have used our Hub-in-Transit solution successfully to improve service to their customers while decreasing costs. We have now developed three additional hub locations to help them serve even more markets, and reap similar benefits. Chemical sector clients have been early users of the programme, but the service is also suitable for other products, such as steels and textiles, or FMCG/CPG.”
