Tradeline - Cost effective, freight, customs, warehousing & logistic solutions. Flexible, customer focussed. From factory to end user. Henning Harders your trusted partner.

One size does not fit all

At Henning Harders TradeLine, we align ourselves with our clients’ specific operations and processes and manage their supply chain as one cost-efficient unit. Over the course of 30 years, this helped us develop a deep understanding of the needs and requirements in a wide range of industries – including freight solutions for food & beverages, chemical, pharmaceutical, healthcare, mining, retail, automotive, construction, manufacturing and technology. Rather than adopting the one-size-fits-all approach of most logistics providers, we develop a tailored and flexible supply chain – specifically for each client and each industry.

It is this in-depth knowledge which allows us to provide logistics and customs solutions that result in a measurable impact on our clients’ business – this also makes us the trusted logistics provider to a large number of companies throughout all industries: 

Logistics for the Oil, Gas and Mining Industry

Oil, Gas and Mining require large investments in machinery and special equipment and any disruption to the production process can cause a costly shut-down. For our clients in this industry, we organise the door-to-door delivery of small and large scale shipments of time critical spare parts. We also take care of efficient customs clearance, refunds and duty minimisation.

Logistics for Machinery and Equipment

At Henning Harders TradeLine, we are well familiar with the specific requirements for machinery and equipment movements; whether they be in gauge, oversize, time critical or fragile kits. We understand that timing and reliability is critical when it comes to machinery and urgently needed equipment and this is where our logistics specialists' dedication to service really excels. We ensure your requirements and time-frames are met, so you can confidently focus on your business.
