Quo vadis, United Kingdom?

Since the United Kingdom officially left the EU on 31 January 2020, it is not only the economic
and political experts who continue to ask this question.

“Then we just go to them”

The coronavirus pandemic and the war in Ukraine can be felt everywhere. The daily work of the German seamen’s missions has also changed considerably due to the current global situation. Above all, flexibility and empathy are required when it comes to making appropriate decisions and giving its seafarers more than just a sympathetic ear.

Many locations provide security

How the energy supply will develop in the coming weeks and months is unclear. What is certain, however, is that the German seaports will play an important role in what is to come.

More differences than similarities

More differences than similarities

There are three key success factors for a business trip in the Netherlands and Belgium – some respect, history and English. It is equally important to differentiate and to remember there is no umbrella approach to the Dutch or Belgians.

A storm ahead for smugglers

Large European ports receive the widest range of shipped goods in containers, which are subsequently transported inland in Germany or other EU countries. However, it is not just goods like tablets, frozen pizza, jeans, auto parts and machine tools that are shipped. “The increase in the flow of goods to Europe has brought an increase in illegal goods being imported by sea.
