  • Hamburg is the largest German seaport with 8,5 million TEU and 126 million tons of cargo in 2020. The Port is therefore an essential part of the logistics- and supply chain infrastructure. The navigation channel adjustment of Lower and Outer Elbe is a major project for the Port of Hamburg. It is not only a key element for maintaining competitiveness, but also has the Hinterland- and railway connectivity with great growth potential.

    Which expansion measures and sub-projects for the navigation channel adjustment of the Elbe were implemented? How were the challenges of this major project mastered? What are the added values of the navigation channel adjustments from a nautical and economic point of view?

    We cordially invite you to join our online event where these pressing issues will be discussed. The discussion will be hold in German and simultaneously translated into English.
