LyondellBasell adds new distribution hub in Hungary for polyolefins grades

This distribution hub in Hungary is an important addition to the LyondellBasell global footprint

LyondellBasell, a global leader in the chemical industry, is proud to announce the establishment of a new distribution hub in Hungary for its polyolefins grades. This move is part of our ongoing commitment, also illustrated by the opening of the UK hub in November 2023, to enhancing the customer experience by placing inventories closer to our customers' facilities reducing lead times on orders.

This distribution hub in Hungary is an important addition to the LyondellBasell global footprint. In addition to our existing distribution platforms, this new hub signifies a significant step forward in providing our customers with faster access to our products.

The creation of this new hub in Hungary is the result of a collaborative effort with logistics expert Maersk, who has a long-standing reputation for excellence in the field. The hub will be strategically located in Budapest, ensuring optimized distribution and swift delivery.

Erik Mezger, commercial manager Polymers, commented, "LyondellBasell is committed to delivering exceptional service and that's why we're excited to announce the opening of a new distribution hub in Hungary. This expansion will mean shorter lead times and even better service for our customers. Additionally, it enables us to further leverage our global asset footprint network so that we can ensure that our customers get the products they need, when they need them."

"We are proud to support LyondellBasell with a tailor-made warehousing solution which reduces the lead time for their deliveries significantly," says Patrick Hore, global vertical head of chemicals at Maersk. "Providing decentralized warehousing solutions instead of distributing out of a single large distribution center across a whole continent is part of our offering as an integrator of global logistics. With our growing network of around 470 warehouses across all continents and our control of logistics assets like vessels, terminals, aircraft and truck fleets, we are able to offer our customers more reliable and resilient cargo flows even in disruptive times."
