[post_content] => RSA-Talke has announced the expansion of its services for its customers across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region with the completion and opening of its new dangerous goods warehouse in the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai. The new chemical warehouse will accommodate 13,000 pallet positions, adding to the hub’s current capacity of 1,800 tank containers, with both units approved to store dangerous goods of nearly all classes.
The new facility is part of RSA-Talke’s plan to systematically expand its tank container terminal in Jebel Ali, establishing its integrated chemical logistics hub as a one-of-a-kind facility in the region.
"Our chemical and petrochemical customers quite rightly attach great importance to their supply chain being flexible, reliable and appropriately equipped while meeting the highest standards of safety,” says Markus Koepsel, general manager at RSA-Talke. “By fully integrating storage logistics, filling, cleaning, maintenance and testing services at one location, we are able to reduce downtimes to a minimum and, as a result, enable our customers to realise demonstrable competitive advantages with the help of an integrated supply chain solution.”
RSA-Talke already operates a tank cleaning station and workshop at its tank container terminal in Dubai. Following the completion of the warehouse, installation work will begin on a filling station for transferring chemicals of various hazard classes into drums and IBCs.
COMMITMENT TO INNOVATION
The new facility is in line with the company’s core purpose: to raise, set and maintain standards in chemical logistics. By providing storage, tank cleaning, maintenance and repair, and specialist workshop services all at the same physical location, this expansion creates a comprehensive chemical bulk liquid supply chain destination for the UAE.
“We are proud to announce that with our new facility and, with the steady expansion of our logistics and technical services, we retain our position in the region as a leader in providing highly specialised storage and distribution solutions,” says Abhishek Ajay Shah, co-founder and group CEO of RSA Global and board member of RSA-Talke. “The new chemical facility will provide further convenience to our existing customer base across the GCC, as well as an integrated solution for new players in the market.”
“RSA-Talke’s commitment to innovation and to diversifying our services solidifies our position in the regional logistics and warehousing market,” adds Richard Heath, chairman of RSA-Talke and Talke president and CEO USA. “We are pleased to offer this, an expanded chemical hub for distribution, warehousing and in the future for refilling, with world-class safety, expert knowledge, and professional standards.”
RSA-Talke is a 50:50 joint-venture between Dubai-based third-party logistics provider RSA Global and Germany-headquartered chemical logistics specialist Alfred Talke Logistic Services. The locations in Dubai’s Logistics City and Jebel Ali Free Zone are the latest additions to Talke’s presence in the GCC area, which also covers Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.
