The cut of tenth of the traffic volume an anniversary is shown

The company of German navigation Hapag-Lloyd, with the other marine carriers that take part of shipowning consortium THE Alliance (the taiwanese Yang Ming Line and the Ocean Japanese Network Express - ONE), is deciding in these days if to transfer from the port of Bremerhaven to that of Amburgo the ports of call in Germany of two or more containerized services ocean-going liners, decision that could regard the Atlantic lines Loop 1 (AL1) and Atlantic Loop 2 (AL2) but also the services AL3 and AL4 that connect the coast oriental of the United States with the Europe North.

The possible change of touched, than from the Container Terminal Bremerhaven (CTB) managed from the terminalista group Eurogate would pass to the Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) operated from the terminalista group Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), is alarming economic the harbour community and of Bremen that fears a decrease from the next autumn of about tenth of the containerized trade volume pairs to 5,5 million teu enlivened annually to Bremerhaven.

The senator to the Economy, job and ports of the Land of Bremen, Martin Günthner, has evidenced that "the connections with hinterland of the container the terminal of Bremerhaven are absolutely excellent with particular reference to the elevated quota rail shipment, than to case is not elevated between the main European ports, also compared with the connections of the port of Amburgo and - he has observed Günthner - he cannot justify the transfer of the services in question".

"Obviously - it has found Günthner - the decision announced from the company of Hapag-Lloyd navigation is not a decision of the society based pure on consideration of commercial type, but - it has specified the senator - it is from mainly framing in the structure owner of the company and also with reference to the involvement of the company of navigation in the terminal Alternwerder di Amburgo (terminal that is managed by the HHLA, ndr). The free and anseatica city of Amburgo - Günthner has remembered - carries out a role key which shareholder is of the navigation company that of the terminalista society".
