Lower Saxony’s seaports create new jobs

OLDENBURG. In 2020, the region surrounding the nine seaports of Lower Saxony employed 47,374 persons in port-related jobs. This was the result of a projection made by the Department of Maritime and Logistics Studies at Jade University based on an earlier empirical study. 71,428 employees are working in port-related jobs throughout the state of Lower Saxony. The increase was calculated outside of the region for the entire state for the first time: 4.7 billion euros in gross value added and 594 million euros in tax revenue were recorded in 2020.
