Harsco provides Logistics solutions engineered to optimize the supply chain on-site and contribute towards the metal producer’s goal of On-Time-In-Full. Our expertise in mobile equipment allied with computer modeling of the movement of vehicles and goods allows seamless integration with the metals production flow. This is backed up by item tracking using RFID or GPS, and video monitoring technologies.
We manage inventories on behalf of customers across all categories of raw materials. A specialized area of added value is scrap, where we can offer a range of solutions to optimize buying, sourcing, storage, upgrading and transportation to the furnace. In addition, we manage stockyards of semi-finished and finished products, and we also provide specialist transportation services on-site.
