Representative Office Shanghai

The Port of Hamburg – China’s most important European hub for imports and exports

  • The Port of Hamburg is the leading seaport in Europe for China’s foreign trade. Almost one-third of all containers passing through Germany’s largest seaport have China as their destination or origin. Among the most transported groups of goods, both on the import and export side, are food and beverages, chemical products, machinery and equipment, household appliances, timber products, paper, cardboard and printed products, as well as metals and metal products. Chinese companies especially appreciate the port’s excellent connection to the European hinterland, especially to Central and Eastern Europe.

Activities of the representative office in Shanghai

  • 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.
