New Logistics Solution
The Zielitz underground waste disposal plant has recently acquired a mobile ramp for unloading sea containers.
Waste that arrives at K+S by sea can now be shipped directly to the Zielitz underground waste disposal plant. This means that there is no longer any need for time- and cost-intensive port loading or for interim storage. The sea containers along with their contents can be transferred directly from ships to trucks, to then proceed to the Zielitz plant. The new facility makes an enormous difference for the delivery process. It makes handling easier and minimizes risks at the same time. For customers, this new form of delivery is an attractive logistics solution.
Sea containers can already be delivered to disposal sites at the Werra plant as well. There, an electrical lift truck is used to unload the containers.
