What is the Pörner Bitumen Packing System?

The Pörner Bitumen Packing System (PBPS) is a comprehensive cold bitumen logistic/supply chain solution from A to Z for the bitumen industry. It addresses all aspects of the bitumen producer, the logistics, the distributor and the end-user.

PBPS' core element is the Pörner Bitumen Bag™, a light-weight, durable and flexible bag optimized for container transport that enables a number of economic and logistic advantages for the entire supply chain. With its unparalleled features, PBPS can increase the producer's margins, reduce transport cost and reach markets that could not be supplied economical so far.

Furthermore, with PBPS, Bitumen can be stored at virtually no cost. Huge investments in terminals and storage infrastructure become obsolete.
