THE Port of Hamburg's first quarter inland vessel data from shows a 20 per cent year-on-year increase to 34,640 TEU

THE Port of Hamburg's first quarter inland vessel data from shows a 20 per cent year-on-year increase to 34,640 TEU.

Additionally, in the first three months of 2019, at 2.57 million tons, the total quantity of cargo carried by inland waterway craft between the Port of Hamburg and its hinterland achieved double-digit growth of 12.1 per cent.



One limiting influence on the further development of quantities by inland vessel this year has been the barely navigable River Elbe caused by low water since May.



Fundamentally, the expected increase in seaport-hinterland traffic in the coming years will open up very good prospects for Hamburg for more shipments by inland craft in the Elbe river basin.
