ArcelorMittal: Improving time management and streamlining processes

About ArcelorMittal Hamburg 

ArcelorMittal Hamburg is part of ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel group. ArcelorMittal has their headquarters in Luxembourg and employs around 210,000 people in 60 plants worldwide. ArcelorMittal Hamburg was founded in 1969 as Hamburger Stahlwerke GmbH and today more than 550 employees produce quality wire rod for drawing plants in Europe.

By linking the Transporeon Platform and the Peripass system, we were able to successfully solve our problem with high throughput times. Now we are permanently on track to achieve the requested key figures in this area.

The challenges

Heavy impact of logistics costs in the steel industry

Before introducing Transporeon’s Transportation Management Platform, ArcelorMittal faced the typical challenges in the steel industry, things like short term orders and just-in-time deliveries, unforeseen fluctuations impacting loading activities, high throughput times, arbitrary loading order because of the space restrictions at the facility and communication difficulties due to the many different nationalities of the truck drivers.

The Solution

Perfect synergy between systems has changed the game

Since 2007, ArcelorMittal Hamburg has been digitising its logistics processes with the help of the Transporeon Platform. The system is perfectly embedded in the existing SAP landscape of ArcelorMittal via an interface. In addition, the yard management system from Peripass has been in use since 2022.

Collaborative Solutions

The winning solution comes from connecting with partners
