Please elaborate on the core offerings of S.A. TALKE for the refining and petrochemical manufacturing industry.

S.A. TALKE Ltd is a joint venture company between TALKE Group from Germany, SISCO Group from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and Al-Jabr group from the Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia. In 2003, S.A. TALKE made a pioneering move when entering into the first on-site outsourcing relationship in the region in this sector. The core offerings of S.A. TALKE, as part of TALKE Group, are transport, logistics, logistic solutions and consulting.

All of our transport services can be combined with our various value-added services. Numerous complementary services are available, ranging from warehousing and container change services to the checking of documentation and product quality assurance. S.A. TALKE can handle all logistical processes for companies in the chemical and petrochemical industries – both onsite and offsite. We also offer a wide range of value-added services.

With our comprehensive logistical services, we can support our manufacturing customers along the entire length of the supply chain. Companies can rely on a wide range of storage options suited to a large diversity of materials, including silos, racked warehouses, hazardous goods storage facilities, bonded warehouses and facilities for chemical storage.

Upon request of the customers, we can also handle the sampling and refining of their products. Meanwhile, our bagging and filling facilities will guarantee the safe and efficient handling of the clients’ consignments, whether non-hazardous or hazardous goods.

We can store virtually all materials and products found in the chemical logistics supply chain. Our storage sites are designed to facilitate the most efficient flow of materials possible and are equipped with state-of-the-art safety systems.

Whether commodities or fine chemicals, our multi-user facilities offer the basis of efficient logistic solutions designed for products manufactured by the chemical and petrochemical industries.

We offer responsible and comprehensive storage solutions, including liquid and dry bulk non-hazardous materials, as well as all hazardous materials typically found in chemical logistics. Storage is in all of the usual packaging types, from the 25-kilogram bag to storage silos via big-bags – and can also be temperature-controlled, if required.

The sheer variety of our storage sites reflects our customers’ multifaceted products and requirements, meaning that our silos, racked warehouses and hazardous goods storage facilities can unquestionably support the requirements of the supply chain. Furthermore, S.A. TALKE is assessed according to Gulf SQAS for all of our warehouses in Saudi Arabia.

Each of these locations meets the very highest safety standards and access to all our sites is restricted. On top of this, each of our sites is equipped with automated fire alarm and extinguishing systems. We also offer storage and handling services for containers.

We analyse logistic processes, advise on its optimisation, and plan and build turnkey logistics plants on behalf of manufacturers. This means that, from the very beginning, our customers can benefit from our expertise in chemical logistics, with comprehensive services available from a single source.

Safe and efficient material flows are a prerequisite for the stable development of a company. As specialists in all areas of chemical logistics, we can support our customers at every stage of the planning and design phases with our analytical, advisory and project management services.

We can also help our customers to plan and optimise their logistics processes, roll out best practice solutions and implement customised supply chain concepts. If desired, we can also extend and modernise existing logistics facilities, handle the selection and procurement of packaging and materials handling technology, and construct turnkey logistics plants. With our in-depth understanding of logistic processes, our logistic solutions business unit supports chemical and petrochemical companies as they venture into new markets and territories.

Drawing on our years of experience in various areas of chemical logistics, we analyse our customers’ logistic structures and processes and then put forward well-conceived recommendations on how to optimise their operations.
