Nijman Zeetank, a leading North West specialist international logistics company, is looking forward to a period of sustained growth, following increased demand for its specialist services across the UK and Europe.
The firm, which has UK bases in St. Helens and Hull, provides organisations across Europe with safe, reliable, transparent and cost-effect logistics solutions. Offering transport via road, sea and rail, Nijman Zeetank works across many sectors, transporting glass, chemical liquids, fuels and cryogenic gasses.
The logistics specialist has worked closely with Pilkington Glass since the 1960s and took over the whole Pilkington UK Transport Division in St. Helens in 1993, further reinforcing the already strong relationship with Pilkington Glass. Consequently, Nijman Zeetank recently celebrated 25 years in business in the UK.
One of the highlights of this relationship is the work associated with the development of ‘floatliner’ vehicles, which carry large and heavy sheets of flat glass, with loads of up to 29 tonnes.
More recently, besides their long-standing significant involvement with dangerous goods logistics, the company has diversified into the transportation of concrete castings for the property market, LNG transportation from inbound ports, as well as general haulage.
Bill Owen, Technical Director, Nijman Zeetank, said: “Demand for our specialist, diverse offerings is growing day by day, as organisations across the UK seek to safely, cost-effectively and confidentially transport their products across Europe.
“We employ 70 logistics professionals at our St. Helens site, servicing more than 140 clients, with over 70 specialist vehicles. Last year, we were delighted to be recognised for our capabilities and skillsets, with the St. Helens Chamber of Commerce’s Excellence in Logistics award.
“As part of our bespoke offering, we also take responsibility for the preparation of import and export documents, as well as the clearance of good travelling across borders.
“We are experts in transport and logistics, who enjoy the confidence, trust and respect from our customers to deliver on time, intact and cost effectively.”
