Port of Hamburg wins best seaport in Europe award

The Port of Hamburg has received the title of best port in Europe for the fourth time in a row.

At the gala of the trade magazine Asia Cargo News in Singapore, Alan Yip of Kerry Logistics presented the Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Award (AFLAS) in the category “Best Seaport – Europe” to HHM representative Anne Thiesen.

In the final vote among the four nominated ports in Europe, the Port of Hamburg was able to leave the Ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp-Bruges and HAROPA behind.

“We are very pleased that the readers of Asia Cargo News have placed their trust in us for the sixth time,” said Thiesen.

With this year’s “Best Seaport – Europe” honour, the Port of Hamburg holds six awards in this category. It went to the Port of Hamburg in 2015, 2016, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.

In addition, the Port of Hamburg won the award in the category “Best Global Seaport” in 2018 and 2019.

Axel Mattern, Executive Director of Hafen Hamburg Marketing, commented: “The prize shows that our achievements are recognised worldwide despite external challenges. At the same time, it is an incentive for the port industry to continue providing outstanding service.”

The awards are hosted annually by Asia Cargo News. The 15,000 readers of Asia Cargo News and subscribers to E-News vote for the winners.

The awards are designed to recognise leading service providers such as airlines, shipping lines, airports and seaports, as well as logistics and 3PL companies and other industry professionals, according to Asia Cargo News.

The nomination criteria are set annually by the organiser. After an initial evaluation, the top eight nominees in each category will face a final vote. The top four in each category then make up the final shortlist.

In the summer of 2023, DAKOSY, a Hamburg-based software provider, created ImpalaID, a new universal identification tool for logistics at the Port of Hamburg.

More recently, Dutch liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplier Titan recently accomplished the first two Ship-to-Ship (STS) LNG bunker operations in the Port of Hamburg.
