Chemion is one of the leading German container terminal operators and specialises in logistics operations concerning hazardous goods containers.
The company offers a complete range of services including box and tank containers for these units.
Storage, handling and transport are a critical part of this operation as well as cleaning, repair and maintenance.
The firm’s container terminals have approximately 2,800 storage spaces at the CHEMPARK sites in Leverkusen and Dormagen.
These sites are among the largest of their kind for hazardous goods in the country. Chemion operates storage capacities totalling 2,760 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) on approximately 37,000 m2.
The container terminals are interconnected by road and rail as well as the ports in Rotterdam, Antwerp and Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The company’s spectrum of work includes logistics solutions from consignments of all kinds to forwarding and transport logistics, as well as fleet management. Additionally, Chemion undertakes logistics-related production processes such as filling and decanting, mixing, refining and separating. More than 1,000 employees work from its sites in Leverkusen, Dormagen, Krefeld- Uerdingen and Duisburg in Germany.
New operations
The new state-of-the-art terminal in Dormagen is Chemion’s way of responding to the high demands of its customers, in terms of capacity, efficiency and safety.
Chemion’s chemical industry customers rely on its services at the CHEMPARK sites in Leverkusen and Dormagen.
Now, the special logistics company has opened a second container terminal in Dormagen. The infrastructure for the handling and storage of 1,000 box and tank containers was created in an area of about 15,000 m2.
The construction and subsequent trial operation took a year to complete.
Dormagen site
CHEMPARK’s operator in Dormagen was delighted with the new terminal. “We are very pleased with Chemion’s investment,” said CHEMPARK director Lars Friedrich. “Manufacturing companies at the site are constantly investing in their operations and needed well-developed, efficient logistics for their businesses.”
The expansion is a boost for production companies at the site, which are increasingly reliant on tank containers for their operations. Raw materials as well as intermediate and final products are stored at the newly named CT DOR II terminal. Safety is a key concern at the facility.
In this respect, Chemion considers itself to be very well positioned in this area for its customers.
“Together with our partner Köster, we have implemented safety and quality standards that far exceed the legal requirements,” added Günther Schoofs, Chemion’s project manager. Measuring sensors ensure extensive monitoring at the site while a sophisticated fire alarm and extinguishing system have also been installed. According to CEO Hans Richter, the only downside from Chemion’s point of view was the COVID-19 situation.
He concluded: “We would have liked to celebrate the commissioning with our customers, partners and the public, but because of the pandemic, unfortunately, the official inauguration has not taken place yet, but hopefully in the near future.”
