New Port of Hamburg “Connection Compass 2018/19” has arrivedThe new Port of Hamburg ‘Connection Compass 2018/19’ has been issued. This departure directory is replacing the well-established ‘Liner Services’. Coming new to ‘Connection Compass’, in addition to the liner services, are the rail and inland waterway services from Hamburg. The Hanseatic city is linked to more than 1,000 seaports on six continents by more than 100 liner services. Add to this in excess of 2,000 container block-train services to/from Hamburg, plus inland waterway links with the hinterland.
This makes ‘Connection Compass’ even more useful for forwarders and shippers, providing a source of information that is really in demand. Apart from a quick overview of all ports that are directly connected to Hamburg, those reached by feeder in each region are also shown on the charts. Add to this, data on active shipping companies and agents, the handling terminals in the Port of Hamburg, the various kinds of cargo, as well as the rail and inland waterway companies. With the overview of weekly container-train and inland waterway services to/from Hamburg, the new ‘Connection Compass’ is doing justice to Hamburg’s position as a logistics hub in Northern Europe, providing real added value for the customer.
The information presented in ‘Connection Compass’ is based on market research data from Port of Hamburg Marketing. ‘Connection Compass’ is also available online in the ‘Mediathek’ under www.hafen-hamburg. In addition to the print edition, all data on the liner services in the Port of Hamburg can also be called up on ‘Liner Services Datenbank’ and ‘Intermodal Services Datenbank’ on www.hafen-hamburg.de. In addition, online you will find numerous services via transhipment and offerings from NVOCCs – non-vessel operating common carriers.
