Scope of the project

Analysis of the on-site railway and interface optimization between on-site railway, warehousing, production sites and terminals.

 
 

Achievements

The Hoechst industrial park is subject to continuing optimization to be able to handle the latest market demands. TransCare analyzed the complete on-site railway. The interfaces between railway, warehousing and production sites as well as the terminal operation were then redesigned. By developing a modular layout planning, the capacities have been adapted to be able to handle the forecast growth. The focus lay in the reduction of the logistics costs by increasing the sales volume. The terminal was changed, extended and put into operation in 2004.
