Third Time’s the Charm

Tickets to Vienna are booked. We are attending the Annual Meeting of EPCA for the third time. Really looking forward to discussing sustainable and resilient chemical supply chains with you and other industry participants. Neele-Vat Logistics offers you the complete set of logistics services in Europe’s biggest and best connected port, Rotterdam.

The massiveness of the Annual Meeting is thrilling. Vienna is an excellent location for this event. One feels the energy in the air. Versatile Supply Chains are this year’s theme. With possibilities for drumming and repacking or the capacity for cold chemical storage (2-7 ºC), we feel we can really bring something into this discussion.

The enormous flow of chemical exports through Rotterdam, shows this is the Port where your goods are handled safe and efficient. From Customs to Carriers, from Safety to Suppliers, Rotterdam is Europe’s biggest and most efficient port. Let us find out what it can offer you.

Our formal agenda for those Vienna days is still ‘under construction’, but I would really like to meet a lot of you over there. In one of the meetings, at the bar or in a more structured and planned way. For that last possibility, I would like you to leave me a pm or a message underneath.
