Dangerous, hazardous and challenging products have never been safer

Specialized products need Metro’s specialists, who are experienced in the safe and effective handling and transportation of the most challenging cargoes.

Safety, environmental regulations and the movement of dangerous goods are big challenges for the chemicals industry, which Metro help them overcome by reengineering their supply chains to effectively meet these challenges.

Metro’s industry-leading tools are conceived, delivered and supported in the cloud by our in-house technical team, providing inventory visibility, vendor management and full supply chain control.


The formula for success

Chemical logistics is particularly challenging, with products that require special care in handling, transporting, compliance and storing to keep them secure and prevent safety hazards.

Designed to carry liquids in bulk, the ISO Tank container is made of stainless steel and is surrounded by various types of protective layers, for different types of hazardous and non- hazardous products.

When a chemical manufacturing client wanted global visibility of their 700 ISO tanks, the Metro team audited individual customer supply chains, so they could be mapped, participants and processes identified, and timescales set at critical milestones.

Working with their MVT colleagues, the Metro account team created a visibility solution which monitors ISO Tank location and progress against the prevailing supply chain model, highlighting non-conformities and automatically resolving these alerts, which means that the client’s personnel only need to address issues that are not resolved naturally.
