Für eine Stahl-Spedition ist ein eigener Gleisanschluss von entscheidendem Vorteil


Rail transport made easy

We have a total of four


. Three of them are located in southern Germany, the northernmost in Bremerhaven. We will soon be calling a fifth connection our own. By using our proprietary software, Denkinger Greedy Log 1.2, we are able to continuously identify the mathematically optimal solution. This also allows us to determine the most cost-effective transport mix between road and rail.


From rail to road with low emissions

Our fleet currently includes several FH Electric vehicles from Volvo with a total towing weight of 44 tons and a range of around 250 kilometers when fully loaded. The next generation of
