Serving global needs with local strengths
We speak your language
Den Hartogh was one of the pioneers of intermodal logistics for the bulk liquid chemicals and gas industry. We have a dedicated business unit for our global operations that serves the needs of leading manufacturers, importers, exporters, distributors and traders around the world. Our ambition is to be a significant global player in our specialised market.
An emerging global force
We have experienced sustained business growth in intercontinental traffic since opening our hubs in Turkey, Dubai, Houston and Singapore and last but not least by acquiring the InterBulk Group in March 2016. This was an important step to expand our global footprint with increased local presence and worldwide expertise to more than 1500 employees in 36 offices close to our customers.
Masters of optimisation
We combine a balanced network of facilities with special equipment - such as lightweight road barrels and ISO containers - to create optimum payloads and optimised transport chains. To us, intermodal means using the most cost effective medium at every stage of the journey, be it road haulage, rail wagons, or container ships. The result: optimised logistics solutions.
Supporting your flows
We tailor our solutions to every customer's needs, responding to the changing transport flows around the world. As each new route or lane emerges we match our growth in capacity and facilities to it, so that our customers can benefit quickly from the new possibilities...and the cheapest routes. At Den Hartogh, we understand the flows of intercontinental trade.

Leading companies worldwide already use our services for liquid chemicals and gas logistics. In many areas we operate from facilities that are specifically equipped for bulk liquid handling, tank container storage and product temperature maintenance. And we cooperate pro-actively with every customer to expand our resources in line with their preferred trade routes.

Leading in Liquid Logistics
Den Hartogh Liquid Logistics is specialized in transporting and storing liquid chemicals. For transportation we use large single or multi-compartment bulk-liquid containers and road barrels that provide maximum carrying capacity for every shipment. This ensures extremely cost-efficient transportation and means Den Hartogh Liquid Logistics can offer the lowest possible prices.
Trained for Liquid Chemicals
Because Den Hartogh Liquid Logistics only handles liquid chemicals, our containers and road barrels are designed for this purpose. Our personnel are specially (and frequently) trained for the task too: for example, we use certified drivers, who deal continually with hazardous chemicals, so they know how to respond in any situation. Additionally, we employ Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors to manage the safety aspects of our business. Loading and discharging substances classified as hazardous requires a specialist approach. Which is why we have made this our greatest strength: delivering smart solutions that are customized to the needs of each client, for every situation.
We manage our operations within a Central Transport Management System in which all movements of the chemicals are tracked. All our vehicles are fitted with satellite and mobile communication systems, making interactive two-way data transmission and positioning possible every minute of the day, 24/7. We are constantly in touch with our drivers and know their status at all times. Even under changing circumstances, we're in a position to respond flexibly to every situation.
Den Hartogh Liquid Logistics operates a unique Supply Chain Management System. This system integrates the vehicle communication system with Transfusion® multi-disciplinary application software, providing a common interface for both the terrestrial and satellite communications systems. Combined with standard applications this smart solution creates an extremely efficient information system, ensuring we have continuous control over our operations and your commitment to your customer.
Understanding your business
Den Hartogh Liquid Logistics uses a network of depots, which means that local drivers present the vehicles at the pick-up points and end-destinations. This avoids language barriers and potential problems with local cultures. It also allows us to reach deep into regions where non-local drivers could have difficulties or even face danger. While our central control unit ensures cost effectiveness, our regional offices add value to your operation by providing local experience.
Dry Bulk Logistics
When it comes to the intermodal transport of dry bulk products, we are one of the most experienced companies in the world.
Our innovative ‘Bag-in-Box’ concept, based on the use of containers and intermodal transport, was first introduced in 1965 and since then the company has grown to become a worldwide operator. Now that InterBulk is owned by Den Hartogh Logistics, we remain a leading provider of innovative supply chain and logistics services.
Services provided include:
door to door logistics;
provision of containers for 'bulk' transportation;
supply of custom-made liners;
flexible solutions for strategic product storage;
delivery at destination via our self-discharging trailers.
Our business operates via our central office in Hull, with support of a global network of own offices and various representatives. We use a combination of smart people, shared services and best-practice-systems, to manage container movement throughout the world. The company therefore represents total logistics management – a one stop shop for your bulk transportation requirements – whether you need local, regional or global services.
InterBulk & Den Hartogh
As of 9 March 2016, InterBulk and Den Hartogh have officially joined forces. This means that InterBulk as a whole, with all its (legal) entities, is now part of family-owned company, Den Hartogh.
InterBulk will be rebranded to Den Hartogh Dry Bulk Logistics over the coming months. During this period we will also keep both websites live.
