Daily feeder vessel services link Bremerhaven with Scandinavia, northern and eastern Europe and Russia. The world’s biggest ocean carriers (>10,000 teus) are calling at Bremerhaven on a regular basis.
EUROGATE operates three container terminals at the Bremerhaven location. EUROGATE Container Terminal Bremerhaven is a common-user terminal which stands open for vessels from all shipping lines. NTB North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven, located at the north end of the terminal, is a dedicated terminal for the world’s largest shipping line, Maersk Line. MSC Gate Bremerhaven operates from the southern point of the terminal site. MSC Gate Bremerhaven is also a joint venture, with the world’s second-biggest shipping line. All three terminal facilities are linked to each other with no boundaries, so that container transfers from one terminal to another are possible.
