Introduction of Bremen Port (DEBRE)

Overview:

The Port of Bremen and the Port of Bremerhaven belong to the state of Bremen, Germany, and are collectively referred to as the "Bremen combined port" in German. The two ports are about 60 kilometers apart, and are planned and managed by the Bremen Port Authority (bremenports) based in Bremerhaven.

Due to the old Chinese translation of Bremerhaven, Bremerhaven and Bremerhaven are often confused. In order to distinguish them, most German professional literature also writes Bremerhaven as Bremen-Stadt or Stadtbremische H?fen particularly accurately.

Bremerhaven is about 65 nautical miles (or 122 kilometers) from the estuary of the Weser River. Ships with a draft of 10.7 meters can enter and exit the port by tide. This port was the first port in Germany to start container loading and unloading. However, with the continuous expansion of the scale of ocean-going container ships, the function of container transshipment has been almost entirely undertaken by the sister port of Bremerhaven. Most of the loading and unloading of Bremerhaven are bulk cargoes and general cargoes. At the same time, it serves the developed port industry in Bremerhaven, while the automobile and container business accounts for only a small proportion.

The port is about 6km away from the airport . The port began to be seen in records at the end of the 8th century, when it was a commercial center and a member of the "Hanse League". In the 17th century, due to siltation of the estuary, it declined for a while. Since the 19th century, with the deepening of rivers and the development of industry, it has become an important industrial city, a railway hub and a large sea port in northwestern Germany. It is also the second largest port in Germany for importing automobiles and textile materials, and is second only to Kobe in the world. A port dedicated to importing cotton. Later, in order to meet the needs of large-scale ships, a new port, Bremen's outer port-Bremenerh-Aven, was established on the right bank of the Weser Estuary.

The Port of Bremen and the Port of Bremerhaven both belong to the state of Bremerhaven, Germany, and are collectively referred to as the "Bremer Combined Port" in German. The two ports are about 60 kilometers apart, and are planned and managed by the Bremen Port Authority (bremenports) based in Bremerhaven.

Due to the old Chinese translation of Bremerhaven, Bremerhaven and Bremerhaven are often confused. In order to distinguish them, most German professional literature also writes Bremerhaven as Bremen-Stadt or Stadtbremische H?fen particularly accurately.

Bremerhaven is about 65 nautical miles (or 122 kilometers) from the estuary of the Weser River. Ships with a draft of 10.7 meters can enter and exit the port by tide. This port was the first port in Germany to start container loading and unloading. However, with the continuous expansion of the scale of ocean-going container ships, the function of container transshipment has been almost entirely undertaken by the sister port of Bremerhaven. Most of the loading and unloading of Bremerhaven are bulk cargoes and general cargoes. At the same time, it serves the developed port industry in Bremerhaven, while the automobile and container business accounts for only a small proportion.

The wharf operation areas of Bremerhaven are scattered on both banks of the Weser River. The core port areas are the Industrial Port and the New Town Port. The main berths are between 10.5 and 11.3 meters in depth, equipped with container cranes, portal cranes, and roll-on platforms. A complete range of lifting equipment. There are inland barge connections between Bremerhaven and Bremerhaven and the inland river ports on the upper and middle reaches of the Weser River , and ocean-going bulk and general cargo routes are set up between major ports in China.

Bremerhaven terminal operation

The multi-purpose terminal in Bremerhaven is operated by the following three companies:

  • -BLG Cargo Logistics Co., Ltd.: Two wharves with a total length of 2,900 meters and a berth depth of 11.3 meters. 3 container cranes, 25 portal cranes, two floating cranes, 1 mobile crane, 1 roll-on platform, with 35.5 hectares of outdoor storage area and 225,000 square meters of indoor storage area.

The port of Bremen has a well-developed port railway. The main port area is connected to the main railway station of Bremen, a hub for both passenger and freight, which can lead to destinations in Germany and even Europe; three major ports in Germany, Hamburg Port and Bremenha The highways A1, A27 and A28 between Fernshavn and Wilhelmshaven meet around Bremen. This rare central location makes Bremen the most ideal cargo distribution center on the northern coast of Germany; Bremen’s airport and port are only a few kilometers away. In the surrounding area, there are aerospace manufacturing and supporting industries clustered mainly by Airbus. The convenient three-dimensional transportation network by sea, land and air makes Bremen very popular among industrial, commercial and logistics companies. Some international logistics companies from Germany such as BLG Logistics Group, EUROGATE, KARL GROSS and Decheng Logistics (ROEHLIG) are headquartered in Bremen.

The warehousing and distribution facilities in Bremen are mainly concentrated in the logistics park "GVZ Bremen" near the Neustadt port. The Bremen Cargo Center was established in 1985, with a total area of ​​496 hectares, and currently 150 companies have settled in the park. In a survey conducted by the Federation of German Cargo Centers in early 2010, Bremen Cargo Center was rated as the "Best Cargo Center in Germany" and ranked second in the selection of more than 70 freight centers in Europe. The traffic conditions of the Bremen freight center will be further improved after the A1 and A27 highway connecting line A281 is fully opened to traffic, thus further consolidating Bremen's status as a freight hub.
