Port of Hamburg will be exhibiting at the TransRussia 2009 fair in Moscow
Russia third most important trading partner for container traffic
From 21 to 24 April 2009 Russia's capital city will once again play host to the Russian and international transport industry TransRussia 2009 . A total of over 450 exhibitors from more than 25 countries will be exhibiting at the Expocentr on the Krasnaya Presnya. Over 20,000 visitors are expected. Hafen Hamburg Marketing (HHM) will be represented in Moscow for the tenth time with a 72 square metre joint stand (Pavilion 8, Hall 2, Stand K 07).
The prestigious Port of Hamburg exhibition stand will provide information on Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V. and five companies operating in Hamburg's maritime port transport industry. The co-exhibitors are: CBT Logistics GmbH, Eurogate Container Terminal Hamburg GmbH, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG, POLZUG Intermodal GmbH and TCO Transcargo GmbH.
The presence of these Hamburg-based companies at the TransRussia serves to again emphasise the importance of Russia and the Baltic states for the Port of Hamburg.
In 2008 goods transported by sea between Hamburg and the Russian Federation totalled 719,700 TEU. In addition to this a further approx. 2,000 TEU were shipped by road and rail. Last year 14 different feeder companies had, on average, a total of 35 departures a week from Hamburg to Russian ports. Goods could thus be shipped from Hamburg to Russia several times a day. The significance of the Russian Federation for the Port of Hamburg has increased steadily in recent years; today it is the port's third most important trading partner after the People's Republic of China and Singapore.
The volume of goods transported to and from the Baltic states has also grown considerably, reaching a handling volume of 265,400 TEU in 2008. Thanks to its advantageous geographic location and its excellent infrastructure the Port of Hamburg functions as a hub for shipments in transit from overseas to the Baltic region and vice versa. In 2008 seven feeder shipping companies offered some 20 departures a week from Hamburg to Baltic ports.
The Russian Federation is also one of Hamburg's most important trading partners in the conventional part-load traffic segment, e.g. for iron and steel; cellulose and machines.
In May 2003 Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V. opened an office in St. Petersburg to represent the Port of Hamburg's interests in the Russian Federation. Ms Natalia Kapkajewa has been Head of the Port of Hamburg Representative Office in St. Petersburg since February 2008.
