We deliver our blasting abrasives and industrial minerals optionally as loose bulk material, by truck or by ship, in big bags of different sizes, or in 25-kilo bags on europallets. In addition, we offer mobile site containers of various sizes and designs to users of loose blasting abrasives for buffer storage of bulk materials at construction sites.
It goes without saying that we also supply you with the desired product “just in time”. We expand this concept, however, to “just in time – but safety first”, because safe transport of the goods in compliance with the law is our primary concern. We comply with loading regulations on the securing of cargo and weighing of trucks as a matter of course. If necessary, customers collecting goods are also provided with relevant information on load safety and any auxiliary equipment they may require.
Data exchange with customers and suppliers made even simpler
Since 2016, multilingual terminals have been installed at the entrance and exit of the Lünen blasting abrasives plant, allowing all the necessary information and documents to be exchanged and generated directly on the spot. This makes the collection process as simple and efficient as possible. Optimization of the plant logistics is an important component in process optimization at our company.
Flexibility for customers and forwarding agents: Euro pallet exchange system
The majority of our abrasives are packed on Euro pallets and so prepared for transport to the customer.
EP Power Minerals’ Euro pallet exchange system stipulates that when products are collected or delivered on Euro pallets, a corresponding number of empty pallets must be returned in exchange by the customer or the contracted forwarding agent. The pallets must be in an exchangeable condition and will be checked against the EPAL checklist: CHECKLIST
For customers collecting goods, there is no charge for the Euro pallets in the case of a one-for-one exchange. If no Euro pallets are returned during collection, the customer will be charged for the pallets. In the case of delivery by our forwarding agents, there is no charge for the Euro pallets if they are exchanged one for one. However, if the forwarder does not receive a corresponding number of Euro pallets back from the customer upon delivery, a charge will also be made in this case on receipt of the delivery note by EP Power Minerals.
The exchange system and the options for dealing with the Euro pallets are shown in the diagram below.
