    Port of Hamburg receives ‘Best Global Seaport’ award

    On 15 May 2018, the readers of Asia Cargo News trade magazine acclaimed the Port of Hamburg as the ‘Best Global Seaport’, the company said in its press release. After two awards as ‘Best Seaport – Europe’ in 2015 and 2016 this is the third award to the Port of Hamburg. The ceremony was held at a commemorative event at the Wanda Reign Hotel, On the Bund, in Shanghai, in the presence of 230 international guests mainly from the transport and logistics field.

    On the short-list, the Port of Hamburg held sway against the ports of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. The magazine’s readers submitted their nominations to Asia Cargo News. Important for them were reliability, customer management, innovation and consistent service quality. Among the criteria assessed were investments in the area of infrastructure, including meeting future market challenges. Added to this were a competitive, cost-friendly system of fees and a suitable infrastructure for handling container traffic. Further criteria targeted the overall port package, such as promoting adjacent services in the areas of logistics capacities, forwarding and transport. With more than 10,000 readers, Asia Cargo News is among the most important publications for the logistics, sea- & airfreight field in Asia.

    For years, China has been an important trading partner for the port, standing at ‘Number 1’ for seaborne container traffic. 2.62 million TEU were transhipped in the China sea-trades in 2017. In fact, the Middle Kingdom also plays an important role for the entire German foreign trade.
