Since 2000 the headquarters of LOXX, which was founded in Essen in 1977, have been located in Gelsenkirchen. From this central position with easy access to the road network, we are able to reach almost ten million people within a radius of 50 kilometres.

In these past 20 years, LOXX has more than tripled the number of employees and therefore created numerous jobs.


At the Gelsenkirchen site, the LOXX GROUP manages the operative companies LOXX Logistics GmbH and LOXX Lagerlogistik GmbH. LOXX Holding GmbH is also based here. 

Logistics centre Gelsenkirchen

LOXX has created a modern logistics centre in Gelsenkirchen. Our office premises and logistics halls are not only functional, but also feature a bright and inviting atmosphere.

In 2002, LOXX received an award for the appealing exterior façade from the Association of German Architects (BDA). During every extension of our logistics property over the years, we stayed true to our style.

Handling and logistics services in Gelsenkirchen

There are 17,000 square metres of space available for handling and logistics services at the logistics centre in Gelsenkirchen at Emscherstraße:

  • 10,000 square metres of which are used for cross-docking of international goods traffic
  • 7,000 square metres are exclusively for logistics services within the framework of contract logistics

All four halls are state of the art and meet environmental specifications. Rapid handling and transportation are ensured by the 93 loading gates, even at peak times.

Shipments handled via the VTL network are turned over at night at the logistics centre in Gelsenkirchen. This makes optimal use of the handling space both day and night. 

In addition, in order to always be able to react flexibly to customer requests, LOXX operates further logistics spaces of its own as well as rented logistics spaces at other locations in Gelsenkirchen and other cities in the Ruhr region.
