All-Purpose Port

The Port of Hamburg is truly an all-purpose port, where a wide range of goods are handled – from grain, cacao, spices and fruit to liquid cargo and extremely heavy project cargo.

However, day-to-day operations at the port go beyond handling and include storage, further transport to and from the hinterland, as well as processing or assembly and disassembly work. All this has a positive effect on Hamburg as an economic hub, as these processes generate substantial added value. Here, the companies in the port and transport sector have developed extensive know-how, which customers value highly.

The all-purpose port also plays a critical role for future development. It is a fundament pillar of the current port development plan, which naturally takes
account of new types of goods, such as alternative energy sources including ammonia. The port companies are also in the process of developing and expanding new fields of business. Evos is a fantastic example of this. The location in Hamburg is ready to start storing and handling carbon dioxide straight away. It only needs to be launched on the market.
