Seaport of Emden
Near the estuary, where the River Ems flows into the North Sea, lies the Seaport of Emden – the third largest and most westerly seaport in Germany. The site consists of an exterior port (Outer Port) that is exposed to the tides, and the tide-independent Interior Port that is accessible 24/7 via two powerful large sea locks.
Here, the main focus is on the handling of new vehicles that are handled at the RoRo berths, and on providing any logistics services for automobile manufacturers. Other chief cargoes handled here are forestry products (cellulose, paper, wood, etc.), project cargo (most notably on and offshore wind energy components), as well as liquid and solid bulk goods.
In addition, the Seaport of Emden offers infrastructural advantages in terms of location: For instance, large expansion areas for commercial and industrial settlements with an affinity to the port, but also an excellent trimodal connection that allows swift and efficient loading and unloading.
