European bulk logistics provider RB Logistics (RB) has appointed GAC Abu Dhabi for a second time to provide a complete logistics service package.

The two-year contract covers freight services, transportation, warehousing and handling of talcum powder from Italy to Ruwais for a client of IMI FABI.

GAC will arrange for collection of talc from IMI FABI’s mine in Italy and send it by sea to Abu Dhabi, where it will handle the customs clearance before transporting to GAC’s Mina Zayed warehouse.

There, the talc will be loaded into RB’s 40-foot silo containers using a specialised RB Transloading machine for the road trip to the production plant in Ruwais. After unloading, empty containers will return to the warehouse. The GAC team will carry out at least 12 load out operations a month.

GAC staff have been trained in the operation and maintenance of the RB machine, and the GACWare Warehouse Management System has been incorporated into the supply chain to ensure transparency, accurate stock records and inventory control.

Ben Reijers, RB’s CEO, says: “By combining RB’s and GAC’s expertise and experience, we are able to offer a unique and niche solution to IMI FABI and their customer. Both companies share the same strong values, and we are very proud to be able to work in partnership on this project.”
