Efficient port terminals as the hub of project logistics

Heavier weights, greater loads, and a wide range of maritime services that go beyond handling – these are the challenges faced by efficient port terminals today. At the first VIA BREMEN professional forum for project logistics in the Bremen parliament building "Haus der Bürgerschaft", Managing Director of BLG Cargo Logistics GmbH, Sven Riekers, spoke on exactly this subject.

At the first VIA BREMEN professional forum for project logistics in the Bremen parliament building "Haus der Bürgerschaft", Managing Director of BLG Cargo Logistics GmbH, Sven Riekers, spoke on on the subject "efficient port terminals as the hub of project logistics". For him, an efficient port is one that can fulfill the market requirements, which have changed enormously in recent years. The central requirements today include heavier weights, greater loads, and a wide range of maritime services that go beyond handling. Ports are also becoming more and more like workbenches. Neustädter Hafen in Bremen operated by BLG LOGISTICS is well armed to face these challenges.

Germany's southernmost seaport is Europe's largest terminal for conventional cargo. Generously designed outdoor and covered storage space also allows larger volumes of products of all kinds to be handled and stored, goods flows to be consolidated, and goods to be packed so as to be seaworthy. Iron, steel, pipes, all kinds of timber products, machinery, plant components, project cargo, and road or rail vehicles – nothing is too heavy or too bulky for the heavy goods specialists in Neustädter Hafen. Right by the deep water for the sea-going vessels, large components for industry are manufactured and taken over whole for loading. BLG LOGISTICS can load the cargo onto the sea vessel as well as providing many other services in the field of conventional port handling from a single source.

In the afternoon, BLG Cargo Managing Director Sven Riekers applauded the range of topics in the first VIA Bremen professional forum for project logistics, which was attended by a mixture of participants from very different areas and regions.
