K+S KALI GmbH – Logistics competence worldwide
In 2010, K+S KALI GmbH hauled a total transport volume of 14.3 m t. K+S KALI GmbH makes an effort to utilise all carriers to full capacity, making use of their specific advantages. We as the ordering partners not only draw a benefit from this, but also our clients and our partners from the logistics industry.
Wherever possible, transports are transferred from roads to more ecological rail and waterways.
New container terminal
In 2010, we have put into operation the Werra-Kombi-terminal, close to our Werra location. This new container terminal will raise the efficiency of potash and magnesium product transports from the Werra potash mine to the seaports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven. Thrice weekly, the terminal will be served by container block trains operated by “Baltic Train”. The terminal is also open to external shippers. This saves 500,000 road kilometres annually, as the container transport by lorry from the Werra Works to a more distant terminal is no longer necessary.
