Eden Prairie, Minn.Oct. 1, 2012—Global multi-modal logistics services provider C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc.’s new division—ChemSolutions—provides logistics services to chemical manufacturing and distribution customers globally.

ChemSolutions provides chemical shippers with chemical bulk shipping; safety and sustainability; freight forwarding; customs brokerage; vendor and supplier compliance; global trade management; and multi-modal transportation.

“Chemical logistics is a perfect fit for us as C.H. Robinson has a long history in specialty logistics ranging from time sensitive products, produce, high value shipments and project business,” said Taylor Nicks, Manager of ChemSolutions. “Because of the inherent risks in transporting chemicals it is imperative that chemical manufactures align themselves with logistics providers that have industry expertise in handling chemicals and programs in place.”
