Growth trend in the Port of Hamburg again maintained in third quarter

Seaborne cargo throughput in Germany’s largest universal port in the first three quarters of 2013 totalled 103.9 million tons (+ 6 percent). The July-September trend, especially, ensured a brilliant throughput total: in the third quarter 35.8 million tons crossed Hamburg’s quay walls, giving the Port of Hamburg a throughput gain of 11.1 percent. After advances in the first quarter of 0.6 percent and of 6.3 percent in the second, the continuous upward trend in its cargo throughput was therefore more than maintained.
