duisport: Trimodal logistics hub and largest hinterland hub in Europe.
The Port of Duisburg is more than a port: As a trimodal logistics hub, duisport handles a volume of 4.3 million TEU (20-foot standard containers) and – by connecting the transport carriers water, rail and road - offers the ideal conditions for creating the most efficient, resource-friendly and cost-effective transport chains possible.
The largest hinterland hub in Europe combines an excellent geographic location and ideal site conditions with comprehensive logistics know-how and impresses customers from around the world with a wide range of products – including full-service packages for infrastructure and suprastructure (including settlement management) as well as logistics for packing logistics, rail freight, project logistics, consulting and building management.
In order to promote innovation in logistics, duisport established the „startport“ innovation platform together with partners from industry. Its mission – to develop the logistics solutions of tomorrow.
The beneficiaries of this connected logistics concept are our partners and customers, including the 300 logistics-focused companies that are based in the Port of Duisburg and that generate added value of around EUR 3 billion per year.
Together with the approximately 1,600 employees of the port company, the companies based in the port and the logistics companies in the region already employ more than 51,000 people – 20,000 more than 20 years ago.
A partner to the logistics industry, duisport connects international markets
With its intelligent network of logistics services, the port offers the companies that are based at this location excellent conditions for supplying industry and trade across Europe. The port's direct and multimodal connections to international freight transport underlines its position as a gateway to the markets of Europe.
The duisport Group forms the connecting axis between producers and customers, connects international markets and acts as an engine for regional and global flows of goods. As an engaged partner to the logistics industry, we optimize transportation chains by developing and implementing customer-specific concepts and solutions that are tailored to different requirements. The 300 logistics-oriented companies that have settled in the Port of Duisburg and that generate an added value of approximately EUR 3 billion per annum especially benefit from this full-service approach.
