The full package – efficiency,
punctuality and comprehensive service

Logistics are a fundamental element of our range of services. Through our local warehouses, we offer our customers punctual and just-in-time deliveries even when requirements are complex. At the same time, direct drop shipments from the manufacturer to our customers are also possible – worldwide. Yet our service begins at an even earlier stage. Hence we’re also able to help with the filling of small containers (in some cases GMP-compliant), repackaging (where necessary with individual customer labels), product refinement (chopping, mixing, grinding, flaking), packaging of mixed pallets, and the optimized last-mile distribution of small quantities. Our high level of service is guaranteed thanks to specially trained logistics experts and strict quality assurance, and we’ve been AEO-certified since 2011. With LZ Logistik GmbH, our corporation has also boasted its own logistics company since 2014, which focuses particularly on handling the warehouse business at our company headquarters and port location in Hamburg.


If it’s on your list,
we can get hold of it

When it comes to procurement too, TER Chemicals’ vast experience and global presence works to your advantage: Rapid goods availability thanks to the broad portfolio we keep in stock and constant market-oriented prices are a matter of course for us. For the purposes of planning and product security, we publish raw materials forecasts (for imports) and give specification guarantees. For our key accounts, we are even happy to procure entire annual contingents. In such cases we determine payment deadlines for our customers individually based on the context. In addition, we hedge transactions, where relevant by means of currency hedging and with credit insurances (Euler Hermes). It is this level of care, not least, along with strict quality management, part of which involves recurring supplier audits (for imports), that has made us an importer of global renown.
