Cleaning of transport-units
ENFIT Cleaning standard
As a rule, transport containers are cleaned professionally in authorized and certified cleaning stations depending on the last load. With the cleaning, the transport container should be brought into a state that does not have any negative effects on the next load. The transport containers that are cleaned include: tankers, silo vehicles, tank containers, tank wagons, IBCs, refrigerated and box vehicles, reefer containers, agricultural and animal transporters, crates, boxes, pallets and trolleys.
While chemical products are not only clean, but also product safety, especially hazardous goods, is a priority, when it comes to transport containers for food or feed, compliance with food or feed hygiene and the prevention of cross-contamination are the primary concerns. Cross-contamination can result in significant costs that can quickly run into the millions if a product is recalled. See also the European regulations on food safety and hygiene, EU-VO 178-2002, EU-VO 852-2004 and EU-VO 882-2004.
