HOW THE SERVICE WORKS:

The returnable drums service we offer is characterized by offering solvents in drums that are customized for each product and customer, in a service and collection circuit that adapts to the consumption required by the user.

The drums are personalised with the product label, customer code and registration number. The consumption of solvent, many times, is not regular and it is necessary to resize the drum wheel to avoid lack of supply. Drum registration allows easier, faster and more efficient monitoring.

In the first shipment, all the agreed drums are sent to the customer. As they are spent, they are collected empty and transported to the filling plant where they are cleaned, conditioned, refilled and re-shipped. Always with the same product, of the same quality and always for the same customer. The average time in which the whole process takes place is approximately 10 days.

Our R.D.S. offers packaging of different materials and sizes, to suit user requirements, as well as accessories to facilitate handling and storage of drums, to make the process more simple, convenient and safe.Check with us all the options.
