Hey! I'm Rudi,

the guy behind ener8 Academy.

I’m the founder of ener8 providing industry players with unique hands-on methods that gives you a scalable playbook to build resilient and sustainable supply chains in the liquid bulk and chemical industry.  In addition to being a coach, I am one of the sought-after advisors in the industry.

I am from Belgium and have been living in Asia for two decades. For more than 25 years, I worked in the liquid bulk and chemical industry out of the exciting cities of Brussels, Kaohsiung, Taipei, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Today I live in the bustling city of Taipei.

I have been fortunate to have worked for an oil and chemical major, one of the largest tank terminal operators, a global chemical shipbroker, and logistics companies. As a result, I have developed extensive experience in parcel tanker shipping, tank storage, tank containers, flexitanks, chemical warehousing, secondary distribution, and other logistics services. My journey allowed me to work with producers, traders, brokers, shipping companies, storage operators, logistics service providers, and many other industry players to develop resilient supply chains. Sustainability has always been my top priority, and I am known as a promoter of health and safety.

Along the way...

I became fascinated with all aspects of the liquid bulk supply chain and how they are interlinked and a big promoter of health and safety. I learned to build resilient and sustainable supply chains the hard way during an exciting 20 years in the office and on-site. In 2015, I realized that my career took me through the whole supply chain and provided me with unique experience in the industry.

So, in my mind, I said, what’s next?

Throughout my journey, I never found someone who could elaborate practically on the interlinked parts of the whole liquid bulk supply chain. Training courses and advice from consultants were expensive and always left me with more questions and often no results. I quickly learned that I was not alone.

That led me to start as a consultant to share my hard-learned experience with industry peers. I set up ener8 in 2015 in Hong Kong with a branch office in Taipei.

I have learned all the mistakes that you should avoid, and many of my thoughts, tips, and tricks have been written on my blog and in magazines, such as Tank News International and Storage Terminals Magazine. I decided to help traders, supply chain professionals, and service providers in the liquid bulk and chemical industry since there is nothing more satisfying than guiding industry peers. I have built my reputation by being honest, hard-working, and overdelivering.

My Mission

Many people think that creating supply chain excellence is difficult to achieve and that consultants are always expensive. Fortunately, that is not true. There is a playbook for you, even if you have a small team or limited resources. You can get results too. And the beautiful thing for you is that I am your go-to guy to get immediate access to this playbook to build a liquid bulk and chemical supply chain for less time and money.

My mission is to share this playbook with you and help you develop supply chain excellence with my unique hands-on methods.

My main focus is to help you develop a resilient and sustainable supply chain.

I am the creator of the ener8 Supply Chain Resilience Proof Method and Supply Chain Sustainability Proof Method, two methods to help you build supply chain excellence in the liquid bulk and chemical industry.

In 2023, I was honored to be included in the global top 100 tank storage industry influencers guide published by Storage Terminals Magazine.
