Rhenus expertise for steel and metal

Backed by over 50 years of experience, Rhenus Logistics Antwerp is optimally equipped to handle your steel and metal products competently and with great care.

Services for steel and metals

Rhenus Antwerp handles steel and metal products of all kinds: coils, slabs, beams, tubes, bars, wire rods, and much more.

At our port locations, various crane systems, coil lifting devices and special equipment enable flexible handling – specifically according to the needs of the respective product.

Rhenus Antwerp can remove the transport packaging of the coils on request before delivering them to the recipient.

Coils can be transported and stored “eye to sky” or “eye to face”. Some of our locations have special devices to tilt the coils.

“Eye to sky” means that coils are positioned in the container with a vertical winding axis, i.e. the winding axis points to the sky.

“Eye to face” means that the winding axis is positioned so that it can be seen from the side.

Rhenus Antwerp reattaches the straps for the safe transport of coils or bundles of beams or bars upon request and in compliance with applicable regulations.


Rhenus Antwerp has developed a tool for monitoring stocked goods in warehouses in collaboration with its internal IT department.  

This application automatically sends loading and unloading orders to the warehouses, ensuring that the cargo is placed on the right truck.  It also calculates the exact renting rate.


When handling sensitive or high value materials, it is important that loading and unloading is carried out correctly.  The presence of a certified surveyor can be requested for both unloading and reloading operations.
