Directly at the mouth of the river Weser where the water is deep enough for sea going ships, Bremerhaven offers ideal conditions for handling containers. The maritime city is one of Europe’s leading car hubs and is also turning onto a key port for the offshore wind industry. The success story of Bremerhaven Container Terminal began in February 1968 when construction work began on a 700-metre long quay. After four expansion projects (latterly Container Terminal 4) the impressive terminal location has meanwhile grown to a total length of almost five kilometres. The world’s longest coherent riverside quay now has 14 berths for mega-container vessels. As the fourth-largest container terminal in Europe, Bremerhaven is one of the leading transhipment hubs for intermodal import and export traffic. Bremerhaven is one of the largest automobile hubs anywhere in the world. In peak years, it handles more than two million vehicles. There are operating and storage areas for 120,000 cars, including covered storage for 45,000 vehicles. re indoors. But the Auto Terminal does more than just load and discharge vehicles: it also offers finishing, repair and retrofitting services, installs individual special equipment or attends to final assembly. High quality, continuous logistics, good transport connections and a full range of services rank amongst the terminal’s many strong points. Diving operations in Bremerhaven can be best performed in the sheltered area named Bremerhaven Harbor.
