At the ‘Container Trade Europe Conference’ of the Journal of Commerce Group in Hamburg, two Eurogate group container terminals were selected for the highest berth productivity in Europe.
MSC Gate Bremerhaven took second place, with NTB North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven claiming third place.
Both companies are joint-ventures of the Eurogate group with the world’s two largest shipping companies. Berth productivity was determined following a customer survey among shipping companies.
Emanuel Schiffer, Chairman of the Eurogate Group Management Board, said: “Two container terminals of the Eurogate Group were awarded at the same time by their customers for their excellent service in terms of their container handling and not for the first time.”
Jörg Colberg, Managing Director for MSC Gate Bremerhaven, said: “Bremerhaven is one of the most productive container ports among the North Range ports. In light of the challenges from ever-larger ships, this is a strong message to our customers, whom we thank for this award.”
Jan Gelderland, Managing Director of the NTB container terminal, concluded: “We are once again among the top three terminals in all of Europe. For us, this is motivation enough to further increase our performance. We handle the world’s largest container ships at our terminal – and in top quality. A heartfelt thanks to all staff members for their diligent work.”
