21 Jul 2021 14:07 Personnel matters

The Baltic Sea region is one of the most important shipping areas for the Port of Hamburg. There are numerous weekly feeder and short-sea connections from Hamburg to Scandinavia, Poland, the Baltic States or Russia.

It is thus of great importance for Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM) to be active in the Baltic Sea region and to expand its international networks. Therefore, the organisation is especially delighted to welcome Jesse Mattson, CEO of MC Containers, as the new "Honorable Representative" for Finland. Born in Finland, he has lived in Hamburg since 2015 and will be a valuable addition to the market development team in the Baltic Sea region. Alongside the representative offices in Warsaw and St. Petersburg, Jesse Mattson opens up new opportunities for HHM and its members to strengthen their presence in the trading region and establish new contacts.

"Finland and Germany have a long and prosperous history together," Mattson explains. For him, it is essential to further improve the cooperation between the two countries. "Since I have experience and extensive networks in both places, I want to help Hamburg companies to be successful in Finland and do the same for Finnish companies in Hamburg," he sums up his aspirations. Since the age of 10, Jesse Mattson has been interested in logistics and shipping and has gained a lot of professional experience in this industry. After working in the international market at various stages, he founded Mattson Containers GmbH in Hamburg in 2015 and has since been able to gain deep insights into the German market and essential Hamburg business relations.

HHM is very pleased to welcome Jesse Mattson to the team. The organisation and its members will benefit greatly from his skills and networks and will work jointly with him to strengthen relations between Hamburg and Finland.

MC Containers is a family-owned international container company founded in Finland 2004. The company has since then expanded to the European container market and established its first abroad office in Hamburg 2015 as Mattson Containers GmbH. Currently the MC Containers Group operates with 6 own offices in Europe and owns 3 private Depots. In Finland MC Containers have offices in Helsinki, Oulu and Vaasa.
