Storage, Packaging and Distribution
Once manufactured, our products are stored in drums, bags, intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), totes or tank containers for delivery to our customers via all modes of transport.
Again, environmental, health and safety issues are paramount as chemicals can be hazardous if not managed correctly. Accidental leaks or spillages must be prepared for. As with manufacturing, there are extensive international, national and regional laws and regulations in place which govern what can and cannot be done. These cover the packaging, labeling and transportation of all our products.
If products are hazardous, such hazards must be highlighted. Requirements to carry out distribution risk assessments and to have emergency response systems in place are described in Huntsman internal standards. Huntsman employs logistic service providers for all of its distribution, so their working practices are audited and monitored in similar ways as for other suppliers to ensure that they maintain the highest EHS standards.
