A clear signal: port alliance is worthwhile

HAMBURG/BREMEN. The topic of the North German Port Alliance (norddeutsche Hafenallianz), which is essentially represented by the ports of Hamburg and Bremen and the port service providers HHLA and BLG/EUROGATE, is also gaining ground at a political level. In a joint statement issued by the four senators – Claudia Schilling, in charge of Science and Ports in Bremen, Michael Westhagemann, responsible for Economic Affairs and Ports in Hamburg, as well as Andreas Dressel (Hamburg) and Dietmar Strehl (Bremen), the senators responsible for finance – they are convinced ‘that an alliance is worthwhile’. It will lead to ‘a strengthening of the maritime locations along the German Bight’. Furthermore, all four encouraged the two major port logistics companies on the River Weser and River Elbe to continue their efforts with the aim of arriving at a solution that meets the interests of all parties. At the same time, the senators pledged to provide ‘close and constructive support’ to the process.
