On 4 and 5 September, the annual representative meeting took place at the headquarters of Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM). All European representatives from Dortmund, Dresden, Munich, Vienna, Budapest, Prague, Warsaw and St. Petersburg were invited for two days to discuss the latest developments in the Port of Hamburg and the respective markets as well as planned measures. Topics such as digitalization and port development projects were on the agenda. Experts were also invited to talk about the new container shipping alliances, ship size development, the Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center and the registration procedure for heavy cargo transport. The final members’ meet-up on Tuesday evening was held at the Penthouse Elb-Panorama near the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken. 240 HHM members from the port and logistics industry, partner ports, the local economy and politics had registered and enjoyed the evening on the 20th floor of the Atlantic House at summer temperatures, a magnificent view of the BluePort and of course stimulated conversations. Networking can be fun.
