PORT OF HAMBURG: Welcome to the official website of Germany's biggest seaport
Around 10,000 ship calls per year, almost 300 berths along a total of 43 kilometres of quay walls for seagoing vessels, more than 1,100 freight trains per week, four state-of-the-art container terminals and around 50 facilities specialized in handling project shipments and bulk cargoes, along with about 7,300 logistics firms within the city limits - these are just a few of the factors making the Port of Hamburg one of the world's most flexible, high-performance universal ports. Last year 137.8 million tons of cargo crossed the quay walls of Germany's largest seaport. That included around 8.8 million standard containers (TEU). Hamburg is accordingly the third largest container port in Europe and in the 18th place on the list of the world's largest container ports.
