Duisburger Hafen AG owns and manages the Port of Duisburg, the world’s largest inland port. For this port and logistics location, the duisport Group offers full service packages in the area of infra- and suprastructure, including relocation management. In addition, the subsidiaries also provide logistics services, such as the development and optimization of transport and logistics chains, rail freight services, building management and packaging logistics. duisport has extensive logistics know-how in land development as well as port and rail handling. One example is the development of the logport parcel in Duisburg-Rheinhausen. More than 50 companies have settled on the former grounds of the Krupp smelter, resulting in more than 4,000 direct workplaces since 1998. duisport is pursuing other similar developments in the entire Ruhr region.
Due to its location on the right side of the Rhine between Cologne and Bonn, the site offers ideal conditions for companies specializing in both general and chemical-specific logistics, and also offers important infrastructure facilities such as a shipping pier, pipelines and a connection to the track network.
The objective of the joint venture is to develop the 50 hectares of open space that are currently available at the Lülsdorf location, and to market these premises with the aim of attracting production and logistics companies. As a first step, the Niederkassel City Council passed a resolution to prepare a site development plan for a partial area that covers approximately 30 hectares. In addition, the existing on-site logistics activities will also be further optimized. In this vein, Evonik and duisport will continue their long-standing and successful partnership. At the Marl chemical park, they are joint shareholders of Umschlag Terminal Marl GmbH & Co. KG. There, the company operates the terminal for combined transportation.
In addition to the existing commercial port, commercial rail operations, incoming and outgoing goods processing and a hazardous material warehouse, there are also plans to build a trimodal container terminal at the Lülsdorf site. It would offer flexibility in loading containers on trucks, rail or ship and vice versa.
