Vopak, the world’s leading independent tank storage provider for the oil and chemical industry, has expanded its Avetta partnership to include the company’s terminal in Deer Park, Texas. The move was made after the Avetta solution enabled Vopak to successfully de-risk its supply chain in Southern California. Third-party contractors also recommended Avetta to Vopak, a result of proven customer service and an easy-to-use prequalification system. The cloud-based supply chain risk management platform will also free up Vopak employees from administrative burden.
Vopak operates 73 terminals in 26 countries with a combined storage capacity of 33.9 million cbm, with another 4.4 million cbm under development, to be added during the period 2015-2019. Vopak’s mission is to ensure safe, reliable and effective storage and handling of bulk liquid products at key marine locations that are critical to its customers around the world.
