Hamburg logistics provider expanding activities in Polish market

HOYER is continuing to expand the range of services it offers in Poland. As from now it is not only renting out Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to its customers, but providing the entire logistics package for these small-scale containers. Its activities will be managed from the HOYER offices in Katowice.

IBCs are still not that well known in Poland,” explains Karina Kaszyca (29), HOYER’s new Area Sales Manager for the IBC sector in Katowice. “But these containers are in fact an ideal alternative, as an intermediate between a drum and a tanker – no matter whether you are transporting chemicals or food.” HOYER is going to be pioneering the exciting Polish market.

In addition to rentals, we can perform the entire logistics involved and, as part of our fleet management service, we also take care of the operation of customer-owned IBCs,” notes Kaszyca. “For our customers this means: high-quality transport and at the same time tremendous cost effectiveness.”

Thus the portfolio of services also covers all workshop operations, including the legally required follow-up examinations and cleaning.

Our single-source, full-service offer means that customers can lower their logistics overheads substantially,” says the sales manager. In her new position she will be able to put her Management Diploma, her Master’s degree in Chemistry, and her MBA in International Logistics to good use. The IBC expert has also gathered executive work experience in the sale and quality management of chemical products.

HOYER leads the field in the European IBC market, with a total of 20,000 units. HOYER’s own IBC fleet consists mainly of standardised types. These intermediate bulk containers with a capacity of between 500 and 1,000 litres are used to transport and store liquid products. They can be provided with special coatings and heating systems, and they can be licensed for use with hazardous products.
