Bulk industrial chemicals form the basic building blocks of many industries, including construction, pharmaceuticals, man-made fibers and packaging.
The business of manufacturing, transporting, storing and handling these essential mid-stream materials has become truly global, increasingly specialized and very large indeed.
Trade in bulk mid-stream commodities can be highly profitable, but risks do exist and need to be managed effectively. With the globalization of trade, the risk of contamination, degradation and product loss has increased and effective logistics management is crucial for traders in this field.
