Transportation and logistics

Steel is indispensable
in the transportation and logistics industry

GMH Gruppe Transport und Logistik

With our high-quality steel products, we keep the modern world moving

Thanks to its resistance to extreme conditions and loads, steel ensures that vehicles and infrastructure always function reliably, even in the most demanding conditions.

To make this happen, steel is used in drive components for commercial vehicles and ships, hoists and lifting equipment in materials handling and intralogistics, and special materials for the aerospace industry. Steel is the often-invisible architect ensuring that our globalized world runs smoothly.

Market trend: e-commerce

Warehouse and materials handling technology

The market for warehouse and materials handling technology is rapidly growing, driven by the strong growth of e-commerce and the increasing adoption of multichannel logistics by a wide range of industries. We supply this market with, for example, hot-rolled special profiles for materials handling equipment, as well as warehouse and logistics structures.
