Seaport of Papenburg
The Seaport of Papenburg is situated immediately on the Federal Waterway Ems – as the southernmost seaport in Germany. Some 75 percent of the goods handled here come from maritime transport. Among other things, the innovative shipyard Meyer Werft has its headquarters here. There is an enormous growth potential at this site: With the Bokeler Bogen (‘Bokel Bend’ a commercial & industrial area), Papenburg offers both, companies with an affinity to the port, and manufacturing companies attractive opportunities to settle down here.
Papenburg is Niedersachsen’s number one port for the cargo handling of peat moss. In addition, agricultural goods, iron, steel, building materials, wood and project cargo are also processed here. Thanks to the excellent hinterland connection, the goods handled in Papenburg are reaching business hubs in Germany and Europe. Via the Dortmund-Ems Canal, the Seaport of Papenburg is connected to the inland waterway network, and it is also in the immediate vicinity of the Federal Freeway, the ‘Autobahn’.
