Nedmag has its own shunting yard where freight trains are unloaded with dolime from our shareholder Lhoist. A new traction contract has been signed for this with the Belgian railway company Lineas.
The dolime comes by train from Belgium from the lime company Lhoist - also our shareholder - and is unloaded on our site. Dolime is added with magnesiumchloride to finally make our end product: Dead Burned Magnesia (DMB), or refractory bricks used for furnace kilns for the production of cement and steel.
Optimising our logistics is a continuous effort. We reach optimalization by being critical of our own logistics process, but also by looking at neighboring compagnies in order to enter new smart collaborations. The goal is a win-win situations for all parties. Lineas shares this vision and is therefore our new logistics partner.
Lineas is our new partner in logistics because they - like us - want to collaborate with neighbouring companies."
