Optimally connected.

Best connections around the globe:
The permanent optimization of our network forms the basis for our success.

For the Port of Duisburg, logistics is more than the optimized connection of flows of goods: The successful growth of duisport is mainly due to its networking activities, which are characterized by personal contacts, a regular exchange of information and permanent institutionalized connections. All of these are required to be able to identify and appropriately influence regional, national and global developments at an early stage. Our engagement in the organizations and associations of the logistics industry and the exchange with national and international partners form the basis for our work. On location, close contacts and coordination processes between the numerous customers in the port area and Duisburger Hafen AG ensure that we are able to achieve our common objectives.

Working for you, on location

Work in organizations and associations of the logistics industry

duisport is represented in the key organizations and associations of the logistics industry with both a seat and a voice. We are in regular contact with the political decision-makers in North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany and Europe, and we are directly involved in the development of key future potentials, primarily through the EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr. This trend-setting cooperation between more than 130 companies and leading scientists on logistics issues forms an important part of duisport's network efficiency.


A technical exchange of information is maintained in the Logistics Working Group of the Initiativkreis Ruhr and in cooperation with RAG Montan Immobilien GmbH for the development of new logistics areas in the Ruhr region. In addition, duisport stays in regular contact with the large European sea ports, leading rail companies and the airports. Due to its proven strategic planning successes, duisport is considered a sough-after partner for the development of new and ideally trimodal logistics hubs around the world.

Networking pays off

The results of our networking activities are impressive: every year, 400 trains travel between the Port of Duisburg and more than 80 destinations in Europe and Asia. Two thousand shallow-draft maritime vessels and more than 20,000 inland water vessels also ensure a smooth flow of goods on the water with more than 100 destinations across Europe.

Only against this background is it possible to see how logistics in and around the Port of Duisburg has now become a turbo driver for key economic developments in the import and export industry.
