    EUROGATE sends the Town Musicians of Bremen to Shanghai


    The Bremen Town Musicians are touring the world. They have settled into a container and are looking forward to new adventures in far-away countries. Their destination is Shanghai. More precisely, the logistics trade fair transport logistic 2016 China, taking place from 14 to 16 June 2016. The Town Musicians of Bremen in a container – this is the graffiti the Innerfields trio of artists from Berlin have designed for the EUROGATE anniversary container celebrating “50 Years of Container Shipping in Germany”. On Friday, 6 May 2016, the anniversary container was loaded on board the “Matz Maersk” at the North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven. With a capacity of 18,270 TEUs, the ”Matz Maersk” belongs to one of the world’s largest classes of container ships and operates on the AE10 Europe-Far East service. Her next scheduled ports of call are Rotterdam (07.05.), Suez Canal (17.05.), Singapore (29.05.), Yantian (02.06.), Busan (07.06.), Gwangyang (08.06.) and Shanghai (10.06.). Anyone who spots the container featuring the four Town Musicians is invited to post a photo on EUROGATE’s social media channels at #eurogatecontainer. The container is scheduled to reach Shanghai on 10 June, where it is to be exhibited outside Hall E2 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre on 14 June 2016.


    The container featuring the four Bremen Town Musicians was EUROGATE’s contribution to the campaign initiated by the Senator for Economic Affairs, Labour and Ports of Bremen to artistically design a number of containers to mark the anniversary of 50 years of container shipping in Germany. The most creative steel box received an award at the EUROGATE/BLG LOGISTICS anniversary event on 4 May 2016. Exactly 50 years ago, on 5 May 1966, the “MS Fairland” owned by the US shipping company Sea-Land was the first full container ship to be handled by BLG LOGISTICS at Bremen’s seaport. This marked the beginning of containerisation in Germany. In 1999, the Bremen BLG LOGISTICS Group and Hamburg-based EUROKAI consolidated their container business activities in the EUROGATE joint venture. In the interim years, EUROGATE has developed to become Germany’s largest container terminal operator as well as Europe’s leading shipping line-independent terminal network. As well as Bremen/Bremerhaven and Hamburg, the Group has operations at 12 international seaports.


    EUROGATE is again presenting at this year’s transport logistic China logistics trade fair, at the “German Ports” joint stand in Hall E2, Stand 320.
