There are more and more traffic jams at the port. What is it A Hamburg freight forwarder knows the reasons that could endanger the Christmas business.
Hamburg – Axel Plaß is very familiar with the port of Hamburg. The 55-year-old is the head of the forwarding association as well as the head of the Hamburg Freight Forwarders Association. If he looks to the coming weeks, he worries: “In my 30 years of professional experience, the situation has never been nearly as dramatic as it is today,” the “Bild” quotes the 55-year-old. The Christmas business is on the brink. It is questionable whether the gifts will reach the port of Hamburg on time.

Opposite the "Bild", the forwarding agent describes what is happening at the Port of Hamburg: "Terminals no longer get two or three large ships a week, but five or six, and then none the next week." How did the problem arise? What is certain for Axel Plaß is that shipping companies are not entirely uninvolved in this: “Shipping companies do what they want”, is the unmistakable conclusion of the 55-year-old. * 24hamburg.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
