Discover the services we can provide for shipping and forwarding
Inland waterway transportation
Eco-friendly transport routes
On the river Rhine and the Danube, we operate a total of eight barges for the transport of vehicles, and these constitute a part of the BLG network via a connection to our own auto terminals. Since we are concerned with interacting responsibly with the environment, shifting road haulage to the water or the railroad is an important element of sustainable logistics at BLG LOGISTICS.
Stevedoring and lashing
Loading and securing on board
We can offer you stevedoring and lashing from a single source, securing your cargo to make it seaworthy. If required, we can also take care of the seaworthy packing. We ensure that the storage is appropriate according to the customer's specifications and that supply is on time. The fact that we work for the largest ro-ro shipowners in the world at the Bremerhaven auto terminal and aboard ship is testament to our outstanding expertise.
Sea shipping administration
Worldwide car shipping and transports
We draw up transport documents and plan the shipping space for you, as well as doing the freight forwarding administration work for imports and exports, reliably and in plenty of time. We can provide individual consulting, all of your transports, and transport monitoring. We place an emphasis on partnership-based collaboration with you.
On-carriage and off-carriage
Optimized cargo handling logistics thanks to impeccable on-carriage and off-carriage
We can offer you expert support with the transport of oversized and heavy loads, and with the assembly and disassembly work before and after transport. We also develop and implement customized transport solutions for you – with roofed storage options if required.
Terminal and port logistics
Network of terminals on the sea, on rivers, and inland
BLG's terminal network includes 20 sites in Germany, Italy, 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.
