Port of Hamburg’s Eurogate voted best European container terminal

For the third year running, the Port of Hamburg’s EUROGATE Container Terminal has been honoured as “Best Container Terminal Europe 2016” with the Asian Freight, Logistics & Supply Chain Award (in short: AFLAS).

Conferred annually, the Award was presented this year for the 30th time in Shanghai. The Award is organised by the newspaper “Asia Cargo News”, which counts Asian importers and exporters among its core readers. With a majority of votes, these readers rated EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg “Best Container Terminal Europe 2016”.

As in the previous years, the rating was based on such criteria as variety of product range, container handling rates per dock crane, efficient turnaround of trucks, timely and adequate investment in new terminal structure to meet future demands and effective IT systems. Despite the nautical access conditions, EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg has the capacity to handle today’s mega carriers.

Peter Zielinski, Managing Director of the container terminal in Hamburg, personally accepted the award in Shanghai and on behalf of all colleagues and staff thanked the customers in Asia for their positive recognition. Special thanks are directed to all employees of the EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg.
