Solvay recognises Stolt Tank Containers’ service during China lockdowns

Stolt Tank Containers (STC) has received a special award from its customer, Solvay, for providing exceptional service during the recent Covid-related lockdowns in China.

From March to June 2022, regional lockdowns disrupted operations at China’s eastern sea ports and the availability of local truck drivers was severely restricted, leading to Solvay’s usual supply and transport routes being unavailable. The STC team quickly stepped into the void by organising special trucking services to deliver raw materials to Solvay’s production plants and to ship its finished products out to customers.

This tailored trucking service helped to facilitate business continuity at Solvay, enabling the company to keep production running, and continue to supply its customers. Without this support, the lack of transport would have otherwise forced operations to pause.

“We’re delighted to have received this special award from Solvay. I am extremely proud of the way our teams around the globe continue to deliver exceptional service to our customers despite the many challenges faced in recent years.” Said STC President, Hans Augusteijn 

The award, in recognition of STC’s fast reaction in providing alternative transport solutions, was delivered to our Shanghai office where it was proudly accepted on behalf of the operations team by Gu Jing (pictured), who has overall responsibility for the Solvay account.

Solvay has been a customer of STC in China since 2015, providing various logistics solutions for its surfactant business both across China and globally.
