Logistics for salt, fertilizer and chemicals

Even in the days of the Hanseatic League salt was considered white gold which helped many port towns achieve prosperity. Back then salt was used almost exclusively to cure fish for long sea voyages. Since then its fields of application have widened continuously. It is therefore still of enormous significance to the port of Wismar.

We have been experts in handling weather-sensitive goods for many years. In order to make sure that fertilizer, soda, potash and all kinds of salt can do the job they're meant to do we use our years of experience in addition to conveyor belts and grabs.

Handling and storage of liquid goods such as Alzon® are done at a special terminal. From here we supply also the local industry with raw materials such as methanol and styrene. The latter is used in making polystyrene packaging, among other things - a much more efficient means of transporting fish nowadays.
