Chemical Transport

Every day our customers send through around 1,000 orders. These are increasingly received directly via EDI and the web into our Roadrunner systems, from where warehousing operatives pick and assemble pallets and parcels for despatch from among the 200,000 in our stores. Our vehicles make 500 deliveries per day, and the Hazchem Network handles 1,000 chemical pallets and parcels each night. All of this - order, pick, packing, despatch and control - is done to 99%+ accuracy.

Integrated logistics:
Our office in Middlewich demonstrates the close co-operation between warehouse and transport admin, facilitated by physical proximity, IT links and an open environment.

Nationwide coverage
We offer fully national next day coverage, through our own network of 15 freehold warehouses - and through our membership of the Hazchem Network.

Pride in the job:
It's a small thing but uniformed drivers give the right image for your company's deliveries. Our long-serving staff (we don't use agency drivers) take pride in their fuel-efficient driving, accident-free records and high levels of customer service.

Breaking news:
Responsible Care is the chemical industry's commitment to continual improvement. We're delighted that the CBA has named HW Coates the Winner of its Logistics award. We're proud of this award because we're proud of what we do, safely and efficiently, every day.
