Together for the Port

The State Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) and the port industry are thus responding to the continuing restrictions that apply to passages on the River Elbe. The aim is to strengthen the competitiveness of the port of Hamburg in view of the decision on the channel adjustment rendered by the federal administrative court in Leipzig.

Structural change in coastal and inland waterway shipping – Experts discuss potential solutions at the 9th ShortSea, Feeder and Inland Waterway Shipping Dialogue

Volatile freight and charter rates, high fuel prices, unemployed vessels and the problems of ship financing are leading to structural change in coastal and inland waterway shipping. Experts are agreed on that. Yet what does this actually mean for the future of the shortsea, feeder and inland waterway ship trades? And how can companies prepare for the transition?

Strong exports ensure growth for Port of Hamburg in 2012 first half

In the first six months of 2012 the Port of Hamburg reported total throughput of 65.8 million tons (up 2.7 percent). At 45 million tons or 4.4 million TEU (20-ft standard containers), the container throughput that predominates in Hamburg as a universal port achieved a gain of 1.9 percent. The reason for this relatively modest growth was the total for empty containers, whereas throughput of loaded containers grew up by 4.7 percent to 3.8 million TEU. Weaker growth rates compared to the 2011 first half are explained by the unusually strong growth achieved at that time.
