Over 170 rail transport companies on the port railway network
Since the foundation of the HPA in 2005,the port railway has been an important division with currently 170 employees. In November 2012,the Port Railway welcomed "Freightliner",the 100th rail transport company in the Port of Hamburg;174 rail transport companies now use the efficient track infrastructure.
In recent years,the port railway has recorded year-on-year growth rates and is thus still on course for a record. In 2022,47.3 million tonnes of goods were moved on the port railway's tracks, the third-best result after 2021 and 2019, maintaining Hamburg's position as the world's largest railway port.
"We are not resting on our laurels, but are striving to continuously expand our position as a driver of innovation," says Harald Kreft,Head of the Port Railway Division. "It is also important to look beyond our own horizons, because the port railway is the link between the container ship handling terminals and the European rail network."
