    A revised Best Practice Guidelines for the Cleaning of Dry Bulk Polymer transport tanks has been issued this month and this in close cooperation with Cefic, EFTCO, and ECTA. This revised guideline takes away the questions and concerns that have been raised after issuing the first Best Practice Guideline version during the first half of 2017. We want to especially thank each of the contributing company members of the working group for their valuable contributions and inputs to this revised document. Going forward, ECTA remains committed to make chemical & polymer logistics more safe, clean and sustainable and any further feedback is welcome.

    Last November we held our ECTA Annual Meeting in the prestigious Hyatt hotel in Düsseldorf which was once more a unique occasion to learn, network and discuss innovative logistics opportunities within the Chemical Industry.
    Besides, it was also the occasion to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the ECTA association with more than 120 guests.

    The conference and the celebration dinner were a great success and we are pleased to share with you the presentations and pictures of the event.

    On request of several Chemical Logistics Stakeholders and given there is recently a renewed focus on measuring transport performance, find below the 2017 revised ECTA-Cefic guidelines for standardized coding of transport events also called the “ECTA codes”. This document replaces the former February 2009 edition.

    In this 2017 document revision, an extra ‘Date & Time’ code was added allowing to categorize early deliveries while some minor textual corrections were made improving the overall accuracy of the document. That said, this 2017 revised ECTA Codes document brings only minor changes that aims to improve the precision of the chemical transport performance reporting across the logistics chain.

    Given MOC (Management of Change) plays a central role in safe logistics operations, “ECTA, CEFIC and EFTCO developed and published in March 2017 new best practice guidelines for managing change along the chemicals supply chain.

    These guidelines provide a framework for companies to better manage changes associated with equipment, materials, products, people, organization and procedures. The guidelines, which are based on best practices already in use, describe procedures and tools to manage changes safely, both on- and off-site, including transport, intermediate storage, loading/unloading operations and cleaning, related to all modes of European land transport including intermodal transportation. Implementing these guidelines should assist in reducing the number of incidents in the logistics chain and the associated harm to people and the environment.

    ECTA wants to thank all participating companies for their knowledge contributions while sharing their inputs and best practices making the logistics operations more safe & sustainable for our people, environment & customers.
