Major developments in our drum and IBC filling operations!

At Rotterdam-Botlek, we operate one of our Seveso warehousing & filling operations. The largest of its kind in the Netherlands, focused on serving the chemical industry.

We have years of experience in filling of chemical products in drums and IBC’s and always aim to offer the highest quality of service as well. We have therefore acquired two new filling lines – one for drum filling and one for IBC filling! These are now fully operative!

From the 7 automatic filling lines, 5 lines are dedicated for filling drums and 2 for filling IBC's. The state-of-the-art ATEX drumming lines can cope with steel, as well as with polyethylene (plastic) drums, new or reconditioned. Next to the standard drums (= 216 liters/55 USG), the equipment is capable of filling the taller "export drums" (= 250 liters). Our high speed filling lines are designed to fill up to 125 drums per hour. The drum filling lines are connected to automatic palletizers, positioning 4 drums on a pallet, attaching strapping and stacking the palletized drums. At the end of the line, 8 strapped drums (on 2 pallets), with all labels facing outwards, will be ready for pick-up by the forklift truck driver. Each palletizer can deal with an amount of 200 drums per hour.

The fast, robotized IBC fillers are capable of filling one IBC every 2 minutes. All (double nozzle) filling lines are equipped with a closed cabinet and vapour treatment systems are obviously available as well, resulting in best-in-class, safe & sustainable solutions. 

The IMO/ADR classes 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9 can be accommodated as far as warehousing is concerned.  At the filling plant, products belonging to the IMO/ADR classes 3, 8 and 9 (plus non-restricted chemicals) can be processed in an highly efficient manner. 



The facilities are favourably located in the Rotterdam port area

The total surface of our covered warehousing space at Rotterdam meanwhile adds up to 115,000 m2. All warehouses are equipped with certified firefighting systems. Sprinkler as well as Hi-Ex Inside Air (foam) firefighting systems are available in order to be able to store a wide variety of chemicals, including low flash products.

As De Rijke Group we offer a wide range of logistic services. Next to warehousing and value added logistics, transportation / freight forwarding and customs brokerage are being offered as part of our integral supply chain solutions. In this way we are able to offer a full supply chain solution to our customers!
