The port opens onto the Sielkanal via two entrance locks, the Seesschleuse lock 154m in length and 26m in width, for general use, and very large vessels, with up to 43m beam can enter the harbour by the shipyard Dockschlease lock, width 46m. Facilities are available for general cargo vessels and bulk carriers, with passenger vessels also using the port. There are two shipbuilding and repair yards in the port.
Papenburg is Niedersachsen’s number one port for the cargo handling of peat moss. In addition, agricultural goods, iron, steel, building materials, wood and project cargo are also processed here.
