Klinge Corporation has revealed that its vice-president, Allan Klinge, will appear on the panel at this year’s LogiChem conference.
The event is Europe’s only conference dedicated to ‘supply chain as a business enabler’. It will be taking place in Antwerp, Belgium from 21-23 April 2015.
LogiChem brings together the world’s most dynamic senior executives in the chemical supply chain and logistics sectors to learn how to connect customer oriented value chain by integrating supply chain, improve collaboration with suppliers, and optimisation of transportation strategies.
Mr Klinge will serve on the industry insight panel, which will address the effectiveness of multi-modal transport methods in the chemical industry.
One such transport method is the transport of chemicals requiring refrigeration, including dangerous or hazardous chemicals.
Mr Klinge commented: "Klinge Corporation has provided specialised dual refrigerated containers for temperature-sensitive and dangerous / hazardous chemicals for over thirty years.
"The company recognised the industry’s need for a safe storage and transport solution for organic peroxides, self-reactive substances, and other dangerous goods.
The company designed a dual refrigerated container specifically for these types of dangerous goods that require refrigeration."
Klinge Corporation’s chemical transport containers contain two refrigeration units, providing primary and back-up refrigeration. The refrigerated container is also available with an integral generator set in case land power is not available.
The chemical transport dual refrigerated containers comply with the International Maritime Organisation’s regulations for the transport of dangerous goods, specifically organic peroxides (5.2) and self-reactive substances (4.1). Companies often struggle to find a transport method that is designed to comply with these strict regulations.
Klinge Corporation is also preparing to release a new line of explosion-proof units for tank container and bulk industry.
This panel will detail and compare their own experiences with a view to the comparison of approaches and lessons learnt across industry. Discussion points include:
– Is there a one size fits all approach? Examine the different requirements and logistics drivers from across the chemicals industry
– Define the optimal combination of multiple transport modes in order to reduce lead times, keep inventory costs down and increase environmental sustainability.
Mr Klinge will be joined by panellists from leading companies such as Cabot Corporation, Lanxess, Eckart, and CLX Logistics.
