The tide-independent Seaport of Stade is located directly on the maritime shipping route of the River Elbe, between Hamburg and the Elbe estuary. An essential location advantage of this efficient industrial port lies in the diversity of resident companies: At the seaport, customers benefit from short distances to various port service providers – for example in the specialized areas of mooring, the stowage of break bulk and bulk cargoes, ships’ clearance, port transfers and dangerous goods transports.
In the southern part of the port, there are ideal prerequisites for the handling of liquid and gaseous raw materials. The northern dock is used for loading bauxite, aluminum hydroxide, and aluminum oxide. In addition, there is an attractive growth potential at the Seaport of Stade – for instance at the extension to the North Pier, where a multi-functional terminal with rail siding is planned.
The Seaport of Stade owes its excellent maritime connection to its proximity to the North Sea and the Kiel Canal. This port location is also ideally connected to the hinterland via Stade’s Industrial Rail Terminal and via the extensive road network.
