As a global leader in the distribution of chemical products, Brenntag created i-KEM, a powerful concept with a B2B platform made exclusively for internal use and carefully chosen Key Accounts, designed to handle and consolidate specialty chemicals as well as industrial chemicals orders.
i-KEM has three basic purposes:
- Purchase and consolidate mixed containers of like products for export from North America into Latin America.
- Improve and monitor working capital in Latin America region.
- Reduce inventories in Latin America region.
Our mission is to improve the commercial and operational efficiency of BLA affiliates by strategically consolidating specialty and performance chemicals, resulting in:
- Improvement of planning and forecast.
- Better product rotation and working capital optimization.
- Boost new product development.
I-Kem consolidates cargo in two strategic points for Latin America: Houston and Miami, which translates in shorter shipping and transit times, providing flexibility to handle unexpected demands or emergencies, immediate traceability with reduced warehouse cost.
