Digitalization in logistics

A new integrated storage and logistics concept will help BASF significantly reduce logistics costs. The transport volume at the Ludwigshafen site is around 20 million metric tons per year. Since the transport links at the Ludwigshafen site account for a considerable share of costs, this is the focus of the concept.

Another part of the logistics concept is the fully automated tank container depot. It is designed to have a capacity of 2,000 standard (20-foot) container equivalents and has two automatic staking cranes, each with a loading capacity of 75 metric tons. It is trimodal, meaning that goods can be handled via AGVs, trucks and rail.
