TALKE, one of the world’s leading providers of logistics solutions for the chemical industry, is satisfied with the developments in 2022, despite global uncertainties. The company has seen a significant increase in global sales compared to 2021.
Growth in overseas business has exceeded expectations and made a positive contribution to the Group’s earnings. The company sees challenges for the domestic market because of the energy crisis and its impact on the industry. To effectively address these, the company has introduced a performance programme, a press communique indicated.
TALKE’s sustainability framework is called ‘Crafting Responsible Logistics’ and covers four areas of action, which the company is progressively fleshing out and implementing. The company has also forged ahead with its digitization initiatives.
In this context, TALKE has introduced real-time tracking in the transport area and automated processes through various SAP extensions.
