ArcelorMittal, a major global steel and mining company located in North Germany, was looking for time- and cost-saving logistics solutions to benefit its own operations as well as its suppliers, an established pool of trusted carriers, and end customers. With an annual achievable production capacity of over 2 million tons of steel on site and an industrial presence in 18 countries, outstanding supply chain and distribution networks are essential for this world-leading steel and mining company.
We are now able to assess the quality of the carriers objectively. After all, the satisfaction of our customers depends on timely deliveries.
Matthias Hirschberg, Head of Logistics

ArcelorMittal selected a suite of Transporeon products, fully integrated with the existing SAP environment.
Truck turnaround time cut down to 50 Min. and waiting time cut 30%; demurrage and congestion minimized
Freight costs down by 10%; fewer loading/unloading staff required
Contracts for scrap purchasing; standardized complaints handling; better quality assurance and security
As customers can rely on timely deliveries, they are able to reduce their stock
