Nijman/Zeetank, a safe way of transport
For more than 60 years in Europe Nijman/Zeetank has been a sound partner in transport and logistics services of chemical liquids, fuels, mineral oils, cryogenic gases and glass.
With branches in four countries and an extensive European network, we offer reliable, safe, transparent and cost-effective logistics solutions. With flexible and sustainable solutions, we respond to the high and continuously evolving requirements of both the customer and the market. We offer transport solutions by road, rail, short sea and inland navigation.
Nijman/Zeetank has various transport options for the distribution of LNG. The LNG is transported to vessel for ship bunkering in ports in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Denmark. The increasing number of LNG truck stations in Europe are also partly delivered by Nijman/Zeetank. The main countries currently delivered to are the Benelux, Germany and France. And LNG is alo delivered to off-grid installation in the whole of Europe, such as the Benelux, France, Italy, Germany, Denmark and Poland.
All transports of LNG are carried out by own equipment. We are using state-of-the-art equipment based on the latest technical requirements and developments in the LNG distribution.
The LNG equipment is purpose build and :
– are designed especially to optimise the load capacity
– have a special safety system for loading and unloading
– have working pressure of 7 bar
– have high-quality insulation for a lengthy holding time during long distances
– all equipment has its own pump and flow meter system
Good communication underlies an effective transport system. That is why we use an on-board computer to communicate with the drivers. This enables us to exchange information with them directly and to inform them of specific work-related instructions at any given time.
With LNG we are involved in since 2006, started in Poland with transports out of Russia. In 2013 we started with LNG in Holland, mainly loading at Gate (Rotterdam), Fluxys (Zeebrugge) and Fos-sur-Mer (Marseille). Most of deliveries are in Benelux, France, Italy, Denmark and Germany.
Currently we do have 11 trailers. In the year mid 2020 the LNG a series of new LNG trailers will be implemented in the LNG fleet.
Nijman/Zeetank applies all current ISO and HSQE standards. Drivers are well trained, very professional and are very committed to the job.
A good quality system is vital to guarantee the continual improvement process. Nijman/Zeetank works with an integrated management system. This is an integrated quality system in which various quality standards are brought together and safeguarded. The system is there for us, as opposed to us being there for the system.
The various operating systems are incorporated in the Integrated Management System (IMS). The system is built around a quality system in line with ISO 9001, but also incorporates an environment management system (ISO 14001) and a safety system (ISO 18001). A number of times a year, an external organisation (TCL) compares the IMS with the standard.
Audits are also conducted by Cefic (SQAS) and customs (AEO).
