Logistics problems again hindering availability of resin

12.11.2018 − 

Longstanding problems encountered when transporting chemical raw materials along the River Rhine have made a significant dent into adhesive resin supply again over the past fortnight. BASF had to curb its resin production markedly in the second half of October because of a lack of methanol deliveries. The company – which transports most of the methanol it needs to make resin in Ludwigshafen by ship – had increasingly switched to using the railway and heavy goods vehicles from the summer in response to falling water levels in the River Rhine.
