Allan Klinge, vice-president of Klinge Corporation, will serve on a panel at LogiChem, Europe’s only conference dedicated to ‘supply chain as a business enabler’.

Taking place in Antwerp, Belgium, from 21 to 23 April 2015, the LogiChem Conference brings together the world’s most dynamic senior executives in chemical supply chain and logistics sectors to learn how to connect customer-oriented value chain by integrating supply chain, improve collaboration with suppliers and optimise of transportation strategies.

Mr Klinge will serve on the industry insight panel, which will address the effectiveness of multimodal transport methods in the chemical industry.

One such transport method is the transport of chemicals requiring refrigeration, including dangerous or hazardous chemicals.

"Klinge Corporation has provided specialised dual refrigerated containers for temperature-sensitive and dangerous/hazardous chemicals for over thirty years," noted Klinge.

"The company recognised the industry need for a safe storage and transport solution for organic peroxides, self-reactive substances, and other dangerous goods and 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.
