C.H. Robinson has formed a division that will specialize in moving chemicals.

The Eden Prairie-based logistics company formed the division, ChemSolutions, to provide logistics services to chemical manufacturing and distribution customers globally, which can be a risky business.

ChemSolutions will provide chemical bulk shipping, safety and sustainability, freight forwarding, customs brokerage, vendor and supplier compliance, global trade management, and multi-modal transportation to chemical shippers.

"Chemical logistics is a perfect fit for us as C.H. Robinson has a long history in specialty logistics ranging from time-sensitive products, produce, high-value shipments and project business," Taylor Nicks, manager of ChemSolutions, said in a statement. "Because of the inherent risks in transporting chemicals it is imperative that chemical manufactures align themselves with logistics providers that have industry expertise in handling chemicals and programs in place."
