Terminals

European automobile logistics network: terminals on the sea, on rivers, and inland

BLG's terminal network includes 20 sites in Germany, Italy, Croatia, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Turkey, and the Ukraine. The seaport terminals on the coast in particular act as hubs and are ports for export of European vehicle production to overseas locations such as China, USA, 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 the Ukraine form important links between production and the customers, ensuring that distribution runs smoothly. All terminals are networked with each other and have intermodal transport connections via truck, railroad, or barge. This ensures end-to-end logistics chains for the customer.
