The Port of Hamburg is back on track in terms of growth. In the first six months of the year, volumes flowing through the port grew and more container vessels called in the port, reveals the port's half-year interim report.

Total volumes landed at 69.4 million tons in the first half of the year, equivalent to a 4.1 percent increase. This is partly due to an increase in container volumes to 4.7 million teu as a result of the port securing four new services which connect to ports in the US, Canada and Mexico, respectively.
