Sucessful year 2015
Wismar Seaport tops German Baltic Sea ports with 10 percent growth in handling
Seehafen Wismar GmbH is able to look back on a successful year 2015. 7.5 million tons spell an increase by 10 percent in the handling of seaborne cargo against the previous year. Considering all means of transport (ships, railway, trucks) this means a total handling of 8.1 million tons for the port.
The foundation for this success was again the close cooperation with local companies and companies from outside the region across the sectors. Both in the import of raw materials and in the export of finished goods the targets were exceeded.
Next year the focus will be on the second stage of construction of the port extension. The first preparatory work for the building of a multifunctional operational area of 45,000 sq. m with a quay length of approx. 300 m has begun. Furthermore the company will implement a new, innovative software next year to optimize the data flow and the entire process control.
Seehafen Wismar GmbH takes on the new year 2016 with optimism. The company expects a stable business trend.
