The ordering of new 25,000 & 26,000 litre tanks by Den Hartogh from Singamas in China for 2013 has been brought forward, following a strong customer demand. In addition to this, Den Hartogh has recently placed an order for 500 units at Welfit Oddy and Singamas. The extra tanks will also be added to the fleet in 2013.
Director Hans Ekelmans of the Business Unit Den Hartogh Global states: “The fast growth of the business for Global has made this decision possible. With the teams of Den Hartogh in Singapore, Dubai, Houston, Le Havre and Rotterdam, we are succeeding in servicing our customers globally. The reactions from the market are very positive,in all regions we see a clear positive trend in business volumes. The target for running a tank fleet of 5.000 units in the global fleet by the year 2015 is clearly within reach.
Since the start of the Business Unit Den Hartogh Global in 2011 we have worked hard on building a global organization with uniform and customer focussed processes and systems. We wanted to offer customers the well known Den Hartogh service level and Smart Logistics. The first quarter of 2013 Den Hartogh Global performed significantly better than planned. Business has more than doubled compared to 2012 and the fleet utilization has improved strongly. This positive development is taking place at offices in Asia (Singapore), Americas (Houston) and Europe (Le Havre and Rotterdam). The strongest growth has been seen in the Middle East region, managed from our Dubai offices."
