A large percentage of SOKA's turnover is generated by international export. Different transport modes are analysed to optimise costs and delivery times. Packaging is adapted to products and upon request. In 2019, SOKA's customised organisation was improved by two new logistics warehouses: one in Quessoy (France), and the other in Nikolaïev Port (Ukraine).
SOKA kaolins are supplied in bulk, either in big-bags or 25kg bags, and the packaging may be customised upon request.
In Quessoy (France), 20- and 40-feet containers are filled on site, with bulk, bags or big bags, and are then shipped from trading ports in north-west France. In Kazatin (Ukraine) containers are filled with bags, or big-bags, of kaolin which then transit by train or lorry to the trading port.
We organise Europe-wide truck deliveries from our sites in Quessoy (France) and Ukraine. Conditioned kaolin is loaded onto tautliner trucks, by full truckloads or groupage. Bulk kaolin is transported by tipper trucks or tankers. The vehicles are automatically checked before loading, to avoid products being polluted.
