Update of port hinterland surveys begins

What are the hinterland destinations of the containers and cars handled in Bremerhaven? Which transport modes are used for the seaborne goods that are transhipped here? What competitor ports and hinterland markets are relevant for the ports of Bremen?

In order to find the answers to these and other questions, bremenports commissioned the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) in Bremen with an update of the study on the seaport hinterland traffic of the ports of Bremen which was first conducted in 2015.

The survey is scheduled to take roughly six months and the findings will be of great strategic importance for both the ports as well as the business community in the Federal Land of Bremen. It is designed to deliver as precise as possible a description of the present and future spatial dimensions of the hinterland of Bremen’s ports.

ISL is counting on the cooperation of the port businesses and transport companies to help prepare the study: over the next few weeks, it will conduct targeted surveys to ascertain facts such as the structure and development of the different freight segments and traffic flows.
