Port of Hamburg 2011 throughput increases 14.2pc


The Port of Hamburg handled nine million TEU last year, a rise of 14.2 per cent, or 1.12 million TEU, compared to 201O, achieving the fastest growth rate in container throughput in northern Europe and becoming Europe's second largest container port.
The port, which is the largest in Germany, also handled 132.2 million tonnes of cargo in 2011, an increase of 9.1 per cent compared with 2010.
Claudia Roller, CEO of Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM), said: "We are delighted that in 2011 the Port of Hamburg proved able to achieve above-average growth both in total throughput and container traffic. With the strongest absolute growth in container throughput, Hamburg regained market share against competing ports."
She pointed out that for 2012 the port is estimating an increase in throughput figures, but not as high as in 2011.
"By year-end the port should achieve a moderate increase in seaborne cargo. With its existing capacities, well-developed infrastructure and highly efficient port service providers, some of whom have recently won international awards, Hamburg is very well equipped to handle growing cargo volumes with its customary reliability, speed and high quality."
Furthermore, the port's CEO noted that the forthcoming deepening of the navigation channel on the Lower and Outer Elbe will further boost Hamburg's attractiveness as a European hub for ultra-large vessels, the Shipping Gazette informs.
