Weserport manages four terminals at the industrial ports in Bremen with operating space measuring more than 330,000 square metres; they are equipped with eight cranes in all and are suitable for handling heavy payloads weighing up to 100 tonnes per square metre. The industrial ports can be reached via the Lower and Outer Weser rivers and also by motorway and rail. The quayside, which is almost two kilometres long, can accommodate vessels with a draught of up to 10.50 metres.
“We’ve upgraded the port facilities with major investments during the past few years and have therefore become the port services specialist handling the most goods at the ports in the city state of Bremen. In order to remain successful in future, we need to be very adaptable. We’re mainly focusing on digitally connecting our customers and providing satellite-supported management procedures for our operations at the moment,” says Weserport’s Managing Director, Heiner Delicat.
ArcelorMittal is not only a shareholder, but also Weserport’s largest customer. “Weserport’s been successfully handling the complete port logistics at the site for ArcelorMittal Bremen for 25 years now. In an environment, which is dominated by change and challenges, we continue to rely on the expertise and competitiveness of our service provider and wish it all the very best on its anniversary,” says Reiner Blaschek, the CEO of ArcelorMittal Bremen.
