Container loading and management
The port of Hamburg is the biggest German container port and the second biggest in Europe. It therefore goes without saying that O’Swaldkai is well equipped for the standardized transport system.
Our terminal has all modern handling equipment for containers and serves all means of transport, from trucks and trains to ocean-going and inland vessels. ConRo ships are handled at the quays; in addition to wheeled cargo, these ships also discharge and load containers.
One of the main activities at O’Swaldkai is to stow vehicles and forest products in containers (wood pulp, newsprint and decorative paper). There is capacity for reefer containers and there are separate slots for dangerous goods containers.
Container logistics are also impressive from the ecological aspect. Nowadays most stuffed containers are transported to the connecting terminals by inland vessel/barge, an eco-friendly means of transport.
