EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg is characterised by a strong dynamic. The terminal is equipped with state-of-the-art container gantries and straddle carriers, permitting smooth and rapid handling. As one of northern Europe’s main transport hubs, Hamburg also offers excellent road, rail and feeder connections to the economic centres of Scandinavia, central and eastern Europe and Russia. The Port of Hamburg lies 115 kilometres or 70 nautical miles inland from the North Sea on the River Elbe1. The eco-friendly inland location enables shipping lines and logistics providers to reduce transport times by road or rail.
Germany’s largest EUROKOMBI intermodal railway terminal is located directly on the terminal site. By 2019, it is planned to expand EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg by 38 hectares of terminal area and 1,059 quay wall in the direction of Elbe/Bubendey-Ufer. The existing turning circle is to be increased from 480 m to 600 m. As a consequence of the so-called “westward expansion”, the handling capacity will increase from 4.1 million TEUs today to 6 million TEUs in total.
