Die Rhenus-Expertise für Stahl- und Metal

Rhenus expertise for steel and metal

Backed by over 100 years of experience, Rhenus France is optimally equipped to handle your steel and metal products competently and with great care. We offer roofed storage in suitable halls at many locations for your moisture-sensitive goods.

Services for steel and metals

Handling of steel and metal products of all kinds: Coils, slabs, beams, tubes, bars, wire rod, 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.

We make use of state-of-the-art scanner technology for the incoming goods inspection to identify the products. Consequently, any damage can be recorded directly using digital photos and transmitted electronically to the customer.

The goods are also scanned accordingly and their condition is documented when the goods leave the warehouse.

Upon request, we can remove the transport packaging of the coils 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.

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