New HOYER Bulk LLC to supply ISO tank container solutions for international, domestic supply chain needs in North America

The Hoyer Group, based in Hamburg, Germany, and Dupré Logistics in Houston TX recently formed a new joint venture for ISO tank container operations.

HOYER Bulk LLC was established to provide customers with a seamless solution for both international and domestic supply chain needs in North America, the companies said. This enhanced convenience will provide customers with opportunities to promote increased efficiency, productivity, and transparency throughout the entire supply chain.

The Hoyer Group holds 49% of the shares in the joint venture, while US-based Dupré Logistics owns 51%. The company is headquartered in Houston TX.

As family-run businesses, the Hoyer Group and Dupré place great value on reliability, safety as well as security and excellent know-how in handling dangerous goods. Both companies are among the market leaders in their operational fields, according to company officials.

The Hoyer Group operates road transport in Europe and has at its disposal a sophisticated international network for intermodal traffic linked to its own business area for overseas traffic. Dupré specializes in transport operations within the United States. Together, the HOYER Bulk LLC joint venture combines the specializations of the two companies, thus enabling seamless order processing and high transparency. Initial transport movements in the United States began on January 15.

Ortwin Nast, chief executive officer of the Hoyer Group, says: “Partnership with Dupré is a logical expansion of our internationally aligned overseas activities by providing transport services in the USA. We thereby enlarge our portfolio of services and also meet the growing demand for transport capacities in the US-American market.”

Mike Weindel, president of Dupré Logistics adds: “It is important to us to know we have at our side a partner that also represents customized logistics and technology solutions. We also give the highest priority to transparency and dependability in our operations. Hoyer has the same understanding, as we immediately noticed.”
