Port of Hamburg 2.2017
Talking of the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, thoughts turn first to the port. Yet Hamburg is not just one of the world’s leading transhipment hubs. As Germany’s third largest industrial conurbation, Hamburg is also one of Europe’s top industrial regions. Many industrial concerns are immediately adjacent to the port. Its efficient transPORT infrastructure and the short distances to cargo handling facilities offer optimal conditions for an exchange of goods with trading partners all over the world.
Against this background, in this issue of the Magazine we examine the port’s significance for industry more closely. We introduce industrial concerns in the Port of Hamburg and look at the challenges involved in having a port close to the city and containing a strong industrial element. We offer a platform for terminal operators and industrial companies and report on future trends.
