As the world population is growing and becoming more affluent, vital products like energy, chemicals and food are in growing demand. Yet these products are not always locally available.We see a growing geographic imbalance between areas of production and areas of consumption of such products. This leads to the transportation of oil, gas and petrochemicals over longer distances around the world and a growing demand for storage and handling of bulk liquids and gases at key locations along global marine trade routes. Through our global network of terminals, Calidiris Bv connects the supply of and demand for these products and resources. This requires that we respond to constantly changing markets and product flows as a result of various major developments, such as ambitious climate policies, geopolitical shifts and the development of new energy sources and cleaner fuels. Determining the best locations for our terminals requires a long-term vision on the products that society needs, while evolving customer demands require flexibility and short-term action in the day-to-day work at the terminals. In such a dynamic context, our success depends on our ability to store vital products with care, while showing leadership in the five key areas.
