FOCUS Growth Champion 2022 - WR Logistics GmbH


WR Logistics GmbH is in the TOP-10 list of 500 German companies identified by the German business magazine Focus and the Hamburg-based Market Research Institute Statista as the fastest growing.

The FOCUS Wachstumschampion (Growth Champion) is an award for innovation leaders from over 20 business sectors. For several years, Focus Business has been cooperating with the Statista institute to identify Germany’s Growth Champions. The determining factor here is the growth of the company’s turnover over the past 3 years.

WR Logistics GmbH, a logistics company from Dusseldorf specialising in cargo transportation to Russia, has become Germany’s second fastest-growing company in the business category “Transport and Logistics” with an average annual growth of 171 percent. Thus, the logistics company reached 9th place in the overall ranking 2022 of Focus magazine.

For the first time, WR Logistics GmbH received the title of Growth Champion from Focus Business. WR Logistics turnover increased twenty times from 2017 to 2020.

Since 2017, the Dusseldorf-based logistics company has been providing services in project logistics, oversize and heavy cargo transportation as well as deliveries on DDP terms to Russia. WR Logistics has already carried out dozens of transport projects with Russia as the destination, including two major projects: Cryogas Vysotsk LNG and the modernisation of the gas processing complex in Ust-Luga. WR Logistics transported for the Ust-Luga plant 620 tonnes of equipment from Italy in 2020.

While each major project presents challenges for the WR Logistics, it also gives new impetus to the business. Innovative solutions and confident, agile action on the part of the WR Logistics staff have helped the company to meet the challenges so far and even exceed its business goals.
