DOMO Caproleuna GmbH modernized its fertilizer transport by 78 new freight wagons
Leuna, March 26, 2015 - DOMO Caproleuna GmbH baptizes one of 78 freight wagons type Tadns in cooperation with InfraLeuna GmbH and NACCO GmbH on the Leuna chemical site. The integrated polyamide 6 manufacturer improves the logistics of its fertilizer division: "We assure the good Leuna quality by the new wagons, from the transportation through the delivery to the customer. Furthermore we open up new possibilities in the marketing of our DOMOGRAN® 45” says Luc De Raedt, managing director of DOMO Caproleuna GmbH.
Larger transport capacities
DOMO is able to provide greater tonnage in less time and with less effort for their customers. “Currently we are able to transport 1,700 tons of fertilizer per train on the railway network D, instead of the former 1,500 tons load capacity in the past. Moreover, it was our ambitious goal to go on the railway with our technically improved wagons in the blue DOMO design," says De Raedt. The 78 state-of-the-art wagons are equipped with a superior hydraulic roof operation. The chutes and the associated pivotal extension consist of a more resistant stainless steel and guarantee more durability.
The operator InfraLeuna GmbH is involved in the procurement and the future management. Dr. Christof Günther, managing director of InfraLeuna GmbH, explains: "We are proud that our important customer DOMO places their trust in us concerning this long-term and sensitive business. Based on the new Tadns wagons our partnership with DOMO reaches a new level in performance, flexibility and reliability in the logistics".
