Eastern Europe is one of the most important global growth markets. In addition to bulk transportation, container transport has the most growth potential. German maritime ports are in competition with the Rhine estuary ports and Baltic ports to supply Eastern Europe. The quality of the seaward approaches to Bremerhaven and Hamburg, and the rail and canal infrastructure into the interior are decisive in the further development opportunities of the German maritime ports.
