Port of Hamburg Marketing`s two offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong represent the interests of Hamburg's seaport and the adjacent transport industry in the Chinese market – especially by establishing and maintaining contacts with Chinese logistics and shipping companies, industry, trade and associations. The representative office in Shanghai covers the markets in Central and Northern China. This includes not only Shanghai as the world’s largest container port, but also the ports in Tianjin, Qingdao, Dalian and Ningbo, along with the hinterland and its inland ports along the Yangtze as far as Chongqing.
The local representatives support the interests of Port of Hamburg Marketing’s member companies in the Chinese market. They organise delegation trips, company visits, events and trade fairs, and offer their support in, for instance, setting up businesses, contractual and legal matters, or finding business partners.
In addition, the representative offices are the first point of contact for Chinese companies to obtain general information about the Port of Hamburg, to establish contacts and to organise visits to the Port of Hamburg and the ports of the metropolitan region.
