The popularity of the Port of Hamburg remains first-class in Asia. At the Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards ceremony in Shanghai on 25 June 2024, the Port of Hamburg won the award for 'Best Global Seaport'. During the ceremony organised by the trade journal Asia Cargo News in Shanghai, Darren Barton, Publisher of Asia Cargo News, presented the award to Inga Gurries, Head of Market Development Asia Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM).

This is the third time the Port of Hamburg has won the title after 2018 and 2019. In the final vote, the Port of Hamburg prevailed against the ports of Singapore, Shanghai and Long Beach. "We are honoured that the readers of Asia Cargo News have placed their trust in us by choosing us as the Best Global Seaport," says Gurries.

The awards are organised annually by Asia Cargo News. The magazine is recognised as an important source of information for freight, logistics and supply chain companies based or operating in Asia.

Around 15,000 Asia Cargo News readers and e-news subscribers had the opportunity to vote for the award winners. The awards are intended to recognise leading service providers such as airlines, shipping lines, airports and seaports, as well as logistics and 3PL companies and other industry professionals, according to Asia Cargo News. "The vote of the trade readership also shows that the Port of Hamburg continues to impress with its services. In times of multiple crises, we have proven our resilience," emphasises Axel Mattern, CEO Port of Hamburg Marketing.

The Port of Hamburg has also been successful at the awards in recent years. It has won the "Best Seaport - Europe" award six times in the past ten years.
The nomination criteria are determined annually by the organiser. After an initial assessment, eight nominees in each category face a final vote. The four best in each category make up the final shortlist, from which the readers select the winners.
