Port of Hamburg showcasing as high-performance universal port at the Breakbulk Europe Transportation Conference & Exhibition in Antwerp

2012 04 25

The Port of Hamburg is among the most flexible and best performing universal ports in Europe. Hamburg’s eight multi-purpose terminals with their total of 30 berths are notable for having years of experience and cutting-edge equipment. This is a good reason for Port of Hamburg Marketing and numerous members firms from the seaport business in the region to showcase at the “Breakbulk Europe Transportation Conference & Exhibition trade fair” in Antwerp from 22 – 24 May 2012.

Around 2.5 million tons of conventional cargo were handled in the Port of Hamburg in 2011, including oversize and especially heavy machines and plant components, cartons, palletized goods and metals, as well as factory equipment and other industrial building elements. One especially gratifying feature was the increase in imports of conventionally loaded metals, which at 185,000 tons achieved a notable rise of almost 26 percent last year. A large proportion of the total consisted of slabs imported for domestic steel production from Russia, among other countries. At 543,000 tons, the main export cargoes in the conventional field are heavy and project cargoes handled at the Port of Hamburg’s special terminals.   

Terminals in the Port of Hamburg and partner ports in the region also specialize in transport and logistics solutions for the fast growing offshore industry. Customized logistic solutions for the installation and supply of offshore windparks are just as much part of the range of services offered as storage, packing, and organisation of transport from and into the hinterland of the seaport.

At the “Breakbulk Europe Transportation Conference & Exhibition” the following companies will be showcasing Hamburg and the region’s strong performance on the joint stand organized by Port of Hamburg Marketing: Alfons Köster & Co. GmbH, Brunsbüttel Ports GmbH, Buss Port Logistics GmbH & Co. KG, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG, Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH, Paul Grimm GmbH & Co. KG, Rendsburg Port GmbH, SWOP Seaworthy Packing GmbH and Wallmann & Co. (GmbH & Co. KG).
