Manfred Zulauf

Managing Director
Business Unit Dry Bulk

Sustainable transport, individual storage concepts and innovative logistics solutions: business unit Dry Bulk is your partner for dealing with dry bulk products for the chemical industry.

As the market leader for intermodal logistics, Bertschi Dry Bulk combines the strengths of rail, short sea, and road to provide the ideal sustainable transport route. Overall, 90% of all shipments are conducted by rail or sea. This benefits not only the customer, but also the environment and society as a whole.

We work together with our customers to develop intelligent logistics and storage concepts. The high degree of volatility in the chemical industry demands flexible logistics solutions – Bertschi Dry Bulk implements container-based storage concepts with no fixed costs.

As a result, the different requirements of production and distribution can be decoupled, allowing production to be optimised and enabling just-in-time supply to end-customers.

We develop – in close cooperation with our customers – bespoke concepts offering added-value. Whether it is the handling of imported products, on-site solutions in chemical plants or intermodal value chains, we have the expertise and the equipment to make your supply chain sustainable.
