kurs bayernhafen

Current Issue: 06/2019

The steel market is on the move, as shown by current developments. But however the market participants line up themselves, steel is and remains the backbone of our economy. One of the most important materials in vehicle, machine and plant construction, in the construction industry, in traffic, environmental and medical technology.

Essential for the raw materials for steel production and the steel products to get to the customers, are the right ways, modes of transport and connections. The bayernhafen locations decisively shape this steel logistics. We therefore have steel as the title theme of the current issue of kurs bayernhafen.

In addition, an interview with Sven Koepchen, CEO of Klöckner & Co Deutschland GmbH, an insight into the logistics of Linde Engineering, a portrait of Richard Köstner AG and an assessment of the new Master Plan for Inland Navigation.
