This chapter examines the rise, decline, and restructuring of the steel industry in Duisburg. Structural policy initiatives led to the shift from steel production to a logistics cluster. The former steel city was attractive for larger enterprises of the logistics branch due to its market proximity and connection to different means of transportation.

Keywords:   Duisburg, steel industry, structural policy, restructuring, governance, LCCGs, logistics
