HOYER supplies fresh water to help flood catastrophe victims and their helpers

Logistics specialist sends tank containers and IBCs to the crisis region

Hamburg, 21 July 2021The international logistics company HOYER has provided five tank containers and twenty-four intermediate bulk containers (IBC) of fresh water for the helpers and victims in the regions particularly seriously affected by the weather catastrophe. These supplies are already in place at the Nürburgring crisis centre, where the disaster control team will use them to supply fresh water to the population. The five tanks are being brought to the town of Adenau, and the twenty-four IBCs are going to the Ahr valley. In this way, HOYER wants to quickly support the victims as well as the helpers who are assisting storm victims in the region. Options to bring more IBCs into use are currently being examined.

Björn Schniederkötter, Chief Executive Officer of the HOYER Group, says, “The suffering and damage caused by this catastrophe are hard to grasp. It is also affecting employees and partners of the HOYER Group and their relatives. By our efforts, we can at least give some support in this way to the work of the task forces.”
