In our multimodal logistics solutions, we combine economically and environmentally beneficial transportation for all carriers. Intercontinental transport of heavy, high volume products and materials are best handled by seagoing vessels. Carriage by barge and rail is more likely for transcontinental transport, trucks are ideal for fast deliveries with short reaction times. Especially on the road, we transport every steel product from tubes, bars, coils to plates and bearers with excess width and length requirements. We offer LTL, FTL as well as heavy load or special transport solutions. As an example of a special transport solution, we transport red-hot steel (up to 800 degrees), by using trucks with special insulating hoods ensuring maximum safety by means of a patented safety concept.


We offer:

  • Custom-made transport concepts
  • Route planning and optimization
  • Scheduling
  • Order Processing

With our production logistic solutions we connect procurement and distribution on our customers’ site, completing the supply chain process. For this in-plant logistics, an interdisciplinary team of engineers, logisticians, and customer production managers develops individual concepts. A connection to the customer’s ERP system ensures the internal material flow follows the production processes – from supply of raw, auxiliary, and operating materials to the disposal of semi-finished and finished products.


We also provide in-house transport solutions for products and materials from different on-site locations. With specially adapted vehicles we transport coal dust, steel girders, moisture sensitive coils, stacks of steel and various intermediate products. All these are synchronised with the customers’ production process.

LR-Folien_08-1Project logistics are complex. In this area we talk about the global shipment of complete plants or structural components, i.e. high value capital equipment. This applies both to small and large items.
Particular challenges are faced when completion dates have to be harmonized with different project phases. Here the optimal organization between points of departure and delivery plays an essential role.
It takes experience and foresight to deliver even heavy and bulky goods in a profitable, time-optimized, and reliable way. Thus, the sum of individual logistic tasks within a project is just as unique as the composition of our project teams implementing the following tasks:


  • Project management
  • Transport planning including appointment scheduling
  • Obtaining of transport permits
  • Preparation of shipping documents (packing lists, bills of lading, customs documents)
  • Crane work
  • Assembly work
  • Customs clearance
  • Insurance services
