New service for Neustädter Hafen

BREMEN. The Norwegian company Norlat Shipping has been offering a regular service from Neustädter Hafen in Bremen to ports on the East Coast of the USA and in the Gulf of Mexico since June. The service focuses on large break-bulk cargo such as forestry and steel products. Sven Riekers, Head of Sales for the break-bulk activities of the BLG Group, stated: “Traffic to North America has always been the backbone of Bremen’s port operations. Norlat’s decision to regularly use Neustädter Hafen will greatly strengthens our position.”
