Solutions for every situation
From a supply chain point of view, the global mining industry can be divided in two segments. Mines in areas with a developed infrastructure can be served easily with the same supply chain solutions that work for other industries. But most mines are located in remote, rural areas, often with rudimentary infrastructures and few opportunities to optimise transportation. Damco offers tested solutions for both situations.
End-to-end solutions, made to measure
To serve the worldwide mining industry Damco has established a Global Mining Team. Our mining experts understand your business and are equipped to deliver innovative and individual supply chain solutions. Starting from a thorough understanding of your situation and your needs, they will design a tailor-made solution, combining only the supply chain components that are truly needed. The result can range from a simple freight forwarding service to a highly sophisticated and integrated end-to-end logistics solution.
The Global Mining Team has offices in strategic locations: Canada, Australia, West Africa, East Africa and Southern Africa. On the African continent alone the team is supported by 50 Damco-owned offices in 33 countries. Combining our dense global network with our presence in all important mining destinations, Damco is able to deliver door-to-door service from any origin country to any mining site on the globe.
If you are involved in international logistics, it is likely that you already work with one or more third-party logistics providers (3PLs) or are considering to purchase 3PL services in the near future. In either case it is critical that you select the right company for the job.
