Vehicle transport logistics, from the manufacturer to the dealers in the countries of destination, requires top reliability and safety as well as a large network. BLG LOGISTICS is Europe's leading expert for automobile logistics. We have our own seaport terminals as well as inland terminals with barges and connections to railroads. A state-of-the-art truck fleet, seven barges and the latest rail cars for carrying automobiles ensure optimal handling and transport of your finished vehicles. At our automobile logistics locations and terminals, we also offer large storage capacities and extensive value added services in our own technical centers.
Our customer portfolio includes manufacturers, renters, leasing companies, fleet vehicle providers, remarketing companies, shipping companies and dealers.
We move automobiles on roads, railroads and water. In Germany and worldwide. Whatever their specific requirements, our customers can depend on sustainable, tailor-made transport solutions. We offer a full range of services for the transport of new and used vehicles by road, rail and inland waterway. These services encompass the entire spectrum, from the distribution of large quantities to individual deliveries – by request directly to the auto dealer's showroom. For us, sustainability is not just a buzzword: We are constantly investing in the modernization of our fleets so that we can provide our customers with reduced-emission transport chains and interact with the environment in a responsible manner.

The BLG LOGISTICS network for automobile logistics comprises locations in Germany, Poland, Russia, Slovenia and Ukraine. Apart from seaports and inland terminals in Bremen, Bremerhaven, Cuxhaven, Hamburg and Gdansk (Poland), we operate several terminals on the Rhine and the Danube. Especially the seaport terminals on the coast serve as hubs and are export ports for European vehicle manufacturers to overseas countries such as China and the USA as well as to Russia and Scandinavia. As ports of entry, these terminals offer a full range of services for the European vehicle market. The terminals in Germany, Poland, Russia and Ukraine form important links between production and customers, ensuring smooth distribution. All the terminals are interlinked, with intermodal traffic connections via truck, railroad and barge.
Our services include PDI (pre-delivery inspection), washing and removal of protective transport film, quality control, interior cleaning, fitting of optional equipment or accessories (e. g. leather upholstery, air-conditioning systems, navigation systems), technical modifications (e.g conversion to liquefied petroleum gas or application of underbody protective coating) as well as handling individual customer requests or special editions (e.g. special painting).
We also offer vehicle valuation, fleet preparation and rental preparation as well as marketing preparation for vehicles (e.g. photo shoots, vehicle auctions).
