The key above all things is water

We get wood moving

For us, the ports are the lynchpin of our activities. Because the best way to transport wood across Europe is still by water. It is fast, making shipping large quantities possible and is also inexpensive and environmentally friendly.

The Konstinkai in Lübeck is operated by the subsidiary, claus rodenberg port logistic gmbh, founded in 2011. Here we offer services in the area of port handling and warehousing of goods for import and export. In addition to roundwood, wood chips and sawmill by-products, the main transshipment goods, are bulk goods such as road salt and building materials. A special feature of the port facility is the ideal combination of storage areas close to the quay, loading tracks suitable for block trains along the quay’s edge and the excellent connection to the motorway, rail and the Elbe-Lübeck Canal. A strong transhipment team plus state-of-the-art equipment make Konstinkai an efficient transhipment hub between Northern and Central Europe.

Quay facility – 1.5 km, 12 berths, 8.50 – 9.50 depth
Rail connection – 2 tracks for one block train each
Handling equipment – Multidocker CH 74D, 18 t lifting capacity, 25 m reach with timber and freight grapple loader, 2 mobile cranes, 1 high-lift front loader, 2 wheel loaders

Ship management

We do it – whether it’s about economic operation or optimum technical performance, we take care of the ship’s operation. And our crew management attaches great importance to the training and continuous education of our ship’s personnel.


Everything is moving – Our territory is the North Sea and Baltic Sea, but you will also find ship cargoes beyond that from us. Most of our cargo is made up of logs and sawmill by-products, but of course we also transport other cargo for our customers.


Communication is everything – and because it is, we ensure a continuous flow of information around the clock. Because only when all those involved in the logistics chain are up to date can the best possible result be achieved.


Service is everything – service means we take care of the ships and their cargo from arrival to departure, but of course also during the planning and post-processing phase. This is the only way to ensure a smooth process.
