BASF logistics concept at Ludwigshafen site
Flexibility in supplying customers and logistics costs are significantly influenced by the internal transport routes at the Ludwigshafen site. With the commissioning of the tank container storage facility, BASF has now implemented the last element of the integrated storage and transport concept.
At the same time, BASF's rail logistics specialists and the Belgian commercial vehicle manufacturer Van Hool have developed the innovative BASF Class Tank Container (B-TC), which is virtually a tank car with a detachable tank. The B-TC is two and a half times larger than conventional tank containers. It will replace BASF's tank cars in the upcoming years.
