Port handling

thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG is not only Germany's biggest steelmaker. The Duisburg-based company is also the second-largest logistics operation in the country, with 142 million metric tons of cargo being transported.

thyssenkrupp Steel Logistics GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG, and has been active in handling and warehouse logistics since July 2022. Based in Duisburg, our company currently has a workforce of about 300 people who see their future in the ongoing development of a powerful and flexible logistics unit on the Rhine waterway.

Customers and partners benefit from our prominent location at Europe's largest inland port: With the ports of Walsum-Süd, where general cargo is handled, and Schwelgern, where raw materials are delivered, as well as the connected storage units, we provide tried-and-tested and state-of-the-art hubs for your handling and warehouse logistics on the strategically important Rhine waterway axis. Our logistics hub links ship and rail in particular for sustainable transport development. In total, thyssenkrupp Logistic GmbH handles around 28 million metric tons of bulk and general cargo per year.


Currently, the main business area of thyssenkrupp Steel Logistics GmbH involves logistics for raw materials and general cargo handling at thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG. Raw material imports through the port of Schwelgern ensure that the blast furnaces and coking plants are kept supplied, while coils and slabs are shipped out via Walsum-Süd.

In the Walsum-Süd and Beeckerwerth operating areas, slab storage yards and the Beeckerwerth central warehouse for coils are located directly adjacent to thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG's production facilities.
