The fully automated tank container depot
BASF starts operating the new tank container storage facility in October 2018 at its Ludwigshafen site. This warehouse is part of an integrated storage and transport concept that BASF is using to improve customer service and significantly reduce logistics costs at the same time.
The tank container storage facility is a fully automatic outdoor storage facility for tank containers for the storage of liquid substances and liquid waste. It is designed for a capacity of 2,000 standard containers and has two cranes with a loading capacity of 75 tons each. Goods can be handled by AGV, truck and rail.
