Hamburg opens its gates
(Posted on 27/03/19)
On 10 May, Port of Hamburg Marketing will be offering those who have always wondered how cargo handling in the Port of Hamburg functions very special company visits to mark HAMBURG PORT ANIVERSARY. Compiled with help from numerous operators, this year the five tours for private individuals will once again provide vivid impressions of seaborne cargo handling. What’s special about the tours is that as a rule, private individuals are not permitted to enter the terminals, something that’s only possible during HAMBURG PORT ANIVERSARY.
Those interested in the loading, stowage and discharge of unwieldy, out-of-gauge freight and shipments weighing many tons will do well to visit C. Steinweg’s Süd-West Terminal. Here participants can experience loading of turbines or parts for windpower farms. A tour of warehouses covering 80,000 square metres enables them to find out about how metals, also coffee and cocoa, are stored. These on the tour also receive exciting and informative impressions of Hamburg’s seven general cargo terminals.
On a visit to Eichholtz’s temperature-controlled sheds, participants learn about the processing of such raw foodstuffs as almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, pumpkin/sunflower seeds and chia seeds. They see how these are stored and expertly sorted and packed for the customers.
Visitors to HHLA Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) and EUROGATE Container Terminal experience the fascination of such terminals in the Port of Hamburg. Both handle giant containerships, smaller feederships that distribute container cargo throughout Europe on feeder services, and inland waterway craft. With its high degree of automation, cutting-edge low-emission equipment, and innovative information technology, HHLA’s Container Terminal Altenwerder ranks as one of the world’s most state-of-the art container handling facilities.
Tour participants experience processes in the company at extremely close quarters, gaining a fascinating insight into the operations of a world port.
