We outsource most of our logistics to reliable third party partners with whom we have long-standing business relationship. Those third party partners have expert knowledge in storing, handling and delivering chemicals, including specific requirements from given industries and appropriate certifications or authorizations.
This grants Safic-Alcan to operate with full compliance with existing regulations and business standards while combining high quality standards and cost effective solutions, thanks to state of the art warehouses and IT service of our partners.
Warehouse partners are continually monitored by our supply chain teams and audited as often as deemed necessary. In specific cases, we however keep the flexibility to operate some own facilities, complementary to our third party partners.
