duisport had already begun in 1998 under the logport brand with the development and marketing of the 2,650,000 sq.m former Krupp smelting works (logport I) in Duisburg-Rheinhausen on the left bank of the Rhine. The goal was the establishment of a trimodal logistic center for high-quality cargo and the location of internationally active logistics service providers.
Better than expected: The planned data for marketing and development of the area have been exceeded continuously since the beginning of the activities.
Today there are around 50 companies established on the logport I logistic area, including the leading logistics companies, such as Kühne + Nagel, DB Schenker, DHL and NYK / Yusen Logistics. In addition to the three intermodal terminals there is an approximately 650,000 sq.m warehousing area on the site, including more than a half dozen European distribution centers for companies such as Danone Waters, Hewlett Packard, Johnson & Johnson and Siemens. Since 1999 there have been over 4000 direct jobs created here.
Logistics-oriented businesses in particular rely above all in their choice of location on the quality of the available transportation connections and port facilities, such as terminals. The expansion of the old Krupp factory port, the erection of the Duisburg Intermodal Terminal (DIT), the Duisburg Trimodal Terminal (D3T) and the Duisburg multi-purpose terminal (DKT), as well as the construction of the secondary railway station, therefore formed an important basis for the successful marketing of the area.
The former Sudamin-MHD site also has belonged to the Hafen Duisburg-Rheinhausen GmbH since February 2006. The 350,000 sq.m area lies in the Wanheim/Angerhausen quarter of Duisburg, on the other side of the Rhein across from logport I.
Together with the financial support of North Rhine-Westphalia and the European Union a total of 60 million euros has been invested in order to transform the former smelting works with its badly contaminated plot into a modern, muti-mode transshipment center.
Since August 2013 the world's largest CKD logistic center of AUDI AG is based here.
The new bimodal terminal logport III started operation in early 2013 on the site of the former DB switch yard in Duisburg-Hohenbudberg. The Dutch logistics company Samskip Van Dieren Multimodal offers a comprehensive intermodal transport offering from here with around 50 trains per week, for example to Scandinavia. In the meantime other customers also use the logport III terminal in an upward trend.
In September 2013 a direct, non-public connection highway between the Chempark Krefeld-Uerdingen and logport III was inaugurated. Through the joint project from Currenta and duisport a significant portion of the chemical transport of companies based in the Chempark were loaded onto the rails.
Legitimate concerns of the neighbors and residents were intensively considered during the realization of logport III. In addition to sound-absorbing walls, a comprehensive sign-posting and guidance concept for the road users was implemented, bicycle paths were built and also further traffic calming measures were taken.
The development of unused industrial areas in the Rhein-Ruhr region into modern logistic sites will also continue in the future. Current examples, such as the logistics land parcel logport IV in Kamp-Lintfort and logport V in Oberhausen are the central focus. With these and other area developments the logport ruhr GmbH is taking the lead, a joint venture of Duisburger Hafen AG and RAG Montan Immobilien GmbH.
