What will you experience during the site visit?
During the visit you will receive more detailed information on the origins and history of the duisport Group, gain an impression of the importance of the world’s largest inland port in the international economy, and get to know logport I logistics area and the terminals there, where a large number of the trains via the New Silk Road start.
In 1998, a new era began in Duisburg at the former Krupp steelworks, a site in Duisburg-Rheinhausen spanning 265 hectares. The idea to reutilize brownfield sites, redevelop spaces and establish multimodal logistics centers began to take shape with logport I. The concept became a unique success story: International logistics providers moved in and duisport developed into one of Europe’s most important logistics hubs. Today it is the flagship for North-Rhine Westphalia as a logistics location and around 50 companies base their operations from the logport I logistics area, including leading logistics companies such as Kühne + Nagel, DB Schenker, DHL and NYK / Yusen Logistics.
In addition to three intermodal terminals, there are around 650,000 m² of warehouse space here, including more than a half dozen European distribution centers for companies such as Hewlett Packard, Johnson & Johnson and Siemens. Over 5,000 direct jobs have been created here since 1999.
