The Importance of Transloading and Packaging Services


Many industries around the world rely on oleochemical suppliers to provide the ingredients needed to develop their end products. But first, the products from the supplier must get to where they need to go.

The process of moving products from the Cremer facility to their destination may involve several services:

  • Packaging
  • Storage
  • Supply Chain
  • Logistics

These services combine to get our customers their products quickly and safely. But sometimes additional steps need to be taken while the products are on their way to the customer, especially over long distances.

Oleochemical Transloading

When it comes to shipping products, transloading is the method of moving a shipment from one form of transportation to another. Sometimes called cross-docking, this process is used when one mode of transit cannot be used for the entire trip.

Transloading is necessary when bulk products must be shipped over extended routes or internationally. In such cases, the products would be transferred from trucks, rail cars or containers as needed for the next part of their journey. This makes proper packaging and handling – especially for oleochemicals or volatile material – so crucial. Preparing the shipments in the right containers and in the correct volume is key for safe mode to mode transfer.

Our Packaging Process

In addition to delivering fast lead times with the ability to create supply chains, we take extra steps to ensure our logistics handling is as thorough as possible. We’re able to consistently deliver our oleochemical products to our customers on time because of careful packaging, planning and preparing for mid-route services like transloading.

With our own dock right on the Ohio River, we have several transloading options on site:

  • Barges
  • Railcars
  • Tanker trucks
  • ISO containers

This is another reason we emphasize safety and quality above all else – with both liquid and dry bulk – to deliver our products with complete care.

It all starts with proper packaging.

This is a sensitive part of any form of chemical handling. To do so safely and accurately, we strictly adhere to specific standards and regulations to ensure correct packaging, storage, and transport – which includes transloading when needed.
