Efficient logistics service provider in BerlinWith 120 staff and a turnover and transport volume of around 4,000,000 tons per year, BEHALA is a major logistics service provider in the Berlin Brandenburg capital region. Its port locations include the trimodal freight transport centres of Westhafen in Berlin-Mitte and Südhafen in Spandau, as well as the port of Neukölln.
BEHALA’s core competence is the handling and storage of bulk freight, general cargo, and heavy items weighing up to 350 t and 500 t at its tandem hub. BEHALA also develops project-based logistics concepts for intermodal transport according to customers’ requirements. In its container terminal at trimodal City-GVZ Westhafen, BEHALA handles daily trains from Germany’s sea ports and the Ruhr region to supply the city. It handles around 130,000 TEU a year here. In all port locations, BEHALA rents out logistics premises (halls, bonded warehouses and offices).
For many years, BEHALA has been committed to electric mobility for freight transport, and very successfully deploys a 100% electric-powered tractor-trailer unit, small vans, cars and railway shunting equipment.
BEHALA is also actively involved in research and development. With its scheduled water-based service for heavy cargo traffic, and the construction of a ro-ro barge specially adapted for Berlin’s waterways, BEHALA has developed an innovative and environmentally friendly logistics solution for the future. With its flagship e4ships project, BEHALA has plans for ELEKTRA, a push barge with a hybrid drive, in partnership with TU Berlin. Hydrogen-operated fuel cells and accumulators are expected to supply power to the ship’s electrical system and 400 KW drive in order to then be able to use ELEKTRA with URSUS convoy on journeys to sea port terminals.
