of its raw materials through Hamburg. “Hamburg is our gateway for raw materials arriving from the North. Here we have discovered a reliable hub on our supply chain,” says Sixt. Last year alone, around 2,9 million tons of iron ore and coal reached voestalpine in Aus- tria via the Port of Hamburg. “voestalpine alone trans- ported 27 percent more via Hamburg. That’s a new record,” stresses Alexander Till, Port of Hamburg Marketing’s Representative in Austria.
Throughput totalled 6.3 million tons, up by no less than twelve percent. At something over 323,000 TEU, containers handled were also slightly up on the previ- ous year, added Till.
“We can be proud to report that in an extremely try- ing year bedevilled by Corona and Russia’s aggressive war, we achieved records in all areas,” emphasized HHM’s Representative. This involved voestalpine in importing iron ore via the Port of Hamburg.
“As a primary raw material, iron ore offers us the ba-
sis for a variety of products with tailormade character- istics,” explained Monika Aschenbrenner, responsible for ore and HBI – hot briquetted iron – at voestalpine Rohstoffbeschaffung – raw material sourcing. Yet iron ore does not always mean the same product. It comes in extremely differing qualities. “The criteria for pur- chasing and processing of iron ore include the iron and slag content of the ore. In addition, there are the classes of pellet to be processed that play an impor- tant part in sintering and/or blast furnace exposure. To prevent any mixing of ores that would reduce quality, we transport and store different types of ore separate- ly, says Aschenbrenner. The iron ore transported via Hamburg comes mainly from Canada, Brazil, Sweden and South Africa. It continues its journey to Austria by rail.
For voestalpine, rail is truly the carrier of choice. “For us, rail transport is the ideal solution. In collaborating with DBCargo, we have a reliable partner for our own rail resources,” says Sixt.
