Dreeke: “We will face up to the challenges we encounter”

HAMBURG. At the turn of the year, the Central Association of German Seaport Operators (ZDS) paid tribute to the successful social partnership in place in the port sector. At the same time, Frank Dreeke, President of the ZDS stated, “A difficult year is coming to an end. During the first lockdown, the employees working on the edge of the quay and in the offices once again demonstrated the resilience of the port sector to crises and its ability to adapt. We succeeded in mastering this challenge thanks to our workforce and the close cooperation we have with our social partners. As in the past, we will continue to work together to face the challenges brought about by coronavirus, climate change and the digitisation that lies ahead of us.”
