Around 50 companies from the port, transport and logistics sector in Hamburg and the region will be presenting their services under the joint “Gateway Hamburg” banner at transport logistic 2013, the world’s largest logistics trade fair being held in Munich from 4 to 7 June.
Infrastructural bottlenecks in port hinterland traffic are becoming increasingly acute, irrespective of the mode of transport, and are fuelling growing alarm among all the players involved. Such was the universal feeling at the parliamentary evening in Berlin organized by Port of Hamburg Marketing and attended by Peter Ramsauer, Germany’s Minister of Transport, and around 150 high-ranking representatives of the world of politics, business and trade associations.
