Covestro Dormagen, a leading global supplier of high-performance polymers, has recently announced the successful integration of innovative liquid bulk handling software into their inland shipping operations. This integration is the result of a collaborative effort with Chemion, their logistics partner at Chempark Dormagen, and represents a significant advancement in their ongoing optimisation initiatives.

With the integration of digitised ADN (Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par voies de Navigation intérieures), VOW (Verkehrsverbot für Oberwasserfahrzeuge), and CDNI (Convention relative à la collecte, au dépôt et à la réception des déchets survenant en navigation Rhin) systems, inland vessels operating in the region will experience improved operational efficiency and enhanced safety measures.

The parties involved are highly enthusiastic about embarking on this collaborative journey, which aims to create a future characterised by safety, efficiency, and sustainability in inland shipping operations. This integration is a testament to Covestro Dormagen’s commitment to embracing innovative technologies and finding new ways to optimise their logistics processes.

As they extend their best wishes to Covestro Dormagen and Chemion on this promising collaboration, they look forward to witnessing the positive impact it will have on the inland shipping industry as a whole.
