Container handling 1990 to 2014
Container handling 2014 / 2015
At 8.8 million TEU - 20-ft standard containers container throughput did not reach the previous year’s level and was down by 9.3 percent in 2015. During the year the weaker state of the economy in the core markets for Hamburg’s container handling, primarily in China and Russia, and the resultant downturn in transhipment throughput, ruled out an improved figure for container handling. Also contributing to the result were tough competition and the lower container handling market in the North Range generally.
