Since 2000 the headquarters of LOXX have been located in Gelsenkirchen. From this central position with easy access to the road network, we reach almost ten million people within a radius of 50 kilometres.
The LOXX logistics centre was established on the restored premises of the former Graf Bismarck mine – therefore its construction at this site is an excellent and active example of the company’s contribution to structural change in the Ruhr Area. In the many years we have been located in Gelsenkirchen, we have more than tripled our number of employees and therefore created numerous jobs.
We now employ 349 people in Gelsenkirchen, two thirds of whom work in the commercial sector and one third in the industrial sector.
At the Gelsenkirchen site, the LOXX Group manages the operative companies LOXX Logistics GmbH, LOXX Logistik & Spedition GmbH as well as LOXX Lagerlogistik GmbH, and LOXX Holding GmbH is also seated here.
At our logistic site in Gelsenkirchen we put our vision of a modern logistics centre into practice. Our office premises and logistics halls are not only functional, but also feature a bright and inviting atmosphere.
LOXX received an award for the successful design of the exterior façade by the Association of German Architects (BDA) in 2002. During every extension of our logistics property over the years, we stayed true to our style.
There are 17,000 sqm available for handling and logistics services at the logistics centre in Gelsenkirchen at Emscherstraße:
- 10.000 sqm are used for cross-docking in international goods traffic
- Additional 7,000 sqm are occupied by the separate logistics hall at the site, which is used exclusively for logistics services within the framework of contract logistics and meets the respective requirements
All halls correspond to the latest state of the art and they meet environmentally friendly specifications.
93 loading gates ensure the fast handling and transport even at busy times.
At night the shipments supplied via the VTL network are handled at the logistics centre in Gelsenkirchen. In this way we make optimal use of our handling space both day and night.
In addition, in order to always be able to react flexibly to customer requests, LOXX operates further logistic space of its own as well as rented logistics space at further locations in Gelsenkirchen and surrounding cities in the Ruhr Area.
