Oversize cargo slides in Hamburg

February 11 - The Port of Hamburg handled 1.7 million tonnes of non-containerised general cargo, including out-of-gauge and ro-ro cargoes, in 2015 - a 14 percent decrease compared with 2014.

Total cargo throughput at the Port of Hamburg in 2015 was 5.4 percent lower than the previous year at 137.8 million tonnes, with container handling also down 9.3 percent year-on-year.

"Among the ports of northern Europe, the Port of Hamburg has maintained its strong position on container traffic with the Baltic region. Compared to ports such as Antwerp and Rotterdam, Hamburg reports around a 7 percent higher proportion of transhipment cargo," claimed Axel Mattern, member of the Port of Hamburg Marketing executive board.

"This is one of the reasons that Hamburg is more seriously affected than Antwerp or Rotterdam by weakness in China's foreign trade and Russia's economic problems, for example," he added.
