Azomures is launching the new guide for the safety transport of agricultural fertilizers, destined to carriers and final users.

Azomures, the most important fertilizer producer in Romania, is launching today in Tîrgu Mures a practical guide for transport companies (auto/railway), specialized in the distribution of fertilizers for agriculture, but also for farmers, who are the final users. The publication of this informative resource is part of the Azomures actions to raise awareness among carrier companies in Romania which transport significant amounts of fertilizers. Observance of the rules imposed by various legislative acts facilitates the implementation in normal conditions of an indispensable activity for Romanian agriculture, that of providing fertilizers for farmers.
The guide for carrier companies was issued in collaboration with the Department for Emergency Situations coordinated by dr. Raed Arafat, state secretary in the Ministry of Internal Affairs. This informative material will be handed to all participants on the distribution chain, starting from the truck driver / locomotive mechanic who transport fertilizers from the producer until the final user, the farmer.
The informative resource, the carrier guide is a synthesis of a series o procedures which are already applied by carrier companies. The above-mentioned procedures are implemented at a European level, by means of the Product Stewardship management program developed by Fertilizers Europe, the European Association of fertilizer producers.
The guide for carrier companies will be distributed in the European countries in which Azomures exports fertilizers, namely: Hungary, Serbia, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia.
