Flexible, fast trucking services

Hamburg is linked to neighbouring regions and also to the large international commercial centres by motorway. Long distance traffic is handled on the radial long distance major road network around the city. Some 80 kilometres of this is motorway.

Annually the roads in the Port of Hamburg carry several million containers. The most important part of the modal split in hinterland traffic is road haulage in the local area (<150 kilometres).

For short distances trucks are often the first choice because of their flexibility and the transport costs. The road network is continually being extended and traffic handling is steadily improving.
