THE Alliance confirmation the transfer of four services ocean-going liners from the port of Bremerhaven to that of Amburgo

Eurogate accusation the blow and specific that draft of a decision assumed from the Hapag-Lloyd, that she is partner of the HHLA

Shipowning consortium THE Alliance, that it is composed of the companies of German navigation Hapag-Lloyd, from that Ocean Japanese Network Express (ONE) and from the taiwanese Yang Ming, has confirmed the transfer from the port of Bremerhaven to that of Amburgo of a quota consisting of own services ocean-going liners, perspective now come true that in the past weeks it had alarmed the community of Bremen(on 24 August 2018).

At the beginning of the next year the shipowning alliance will transfer very four services ocean-going liners that currently make port of call to the terminal Container Terminal Bremerhaven (CTB) managed from the terminalista group Eurogate in the port of Bremerhaven to the Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) of the terminalista group Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) in the port of Amburgo.

The fears of the harbour community of Bremen for the loss of an important slice of containerized trade come true in a moment in which this type of traffic enlivened in the harbour port of call of Bremerhaven a clean resumption is showing: after a first trimester of the 2018 chiusosi with an enlivened bending of the -3,2% of the container in the period and after a next trimester in which an increase of +4.8% is recorded, in the next period of two months of peak season July-August the traffic of the container enlivened in the port of Bremen/Bremerhaven has been pairs to 952 thousand teu, with an increment of +12.4% on the correspondent period of 2017. The single month of August of 2018, with a total of 491 thousand teu, has been archived item with an increase of +13.0%.

The decision of THE Alliance is obviously particularly negative for the Eurogate group, than if from a part it has specified that such announcement is not unexpected joint from the other has pungentemente manifested perplexity for the infrastructural limits that limit the access of the great ships to terminal CTA of Amburgo and have left to intend, little leaving space to different interpretations, that the decision is tied to the "weight" in the within of the shipowning consortium of the Hapag-Lloyd, company of navigation that among other things has a shareholder in municipality with the HHLA: the HGV (Hamburger Gesellschaft für Vermögens- und Beteiligungsmanagement GmbH), society integrally controlled from the administration of the city of Bremen, that it stops 68% of the capital of the HHLA and 13.9% of the capital of the Hapag-Lloyd.

"For many years - the managing director of the terminalista group German Eurogate has explained, Michael Blach - we have carefully estimated the evolution of the dimensions of the ships in the segment of the international containerized trade and their impact on the European ports. Making reference the CTA, it is obvious that because of the infrastructural situation - in this case because of the Köhlbrand bridge (viaduct place to valley of the terminal CTA that crosses the Köhlbrand, secondary branch of Elba, ndr) - the employment of the greatest classes than container vessels it is possible single in limited way. Although this - he has specified Blach - we respect the free entrepreneurial decision of the partner of the CTA, the Hapag-Lloyd, to move to Amburgo its portacontainer more small employed in the services ocean-going liners to the aim to assure the best one we use possible of the CTA".

Blach has granted that this decision has as effect a decrease of the traffic enlivened to terminal CTB and of the economic results of the group, with glares negatives also on the occupation: "naturally - it has confirmed - this is not a good news for the Eurogate group, because we must wait for a correspondent to us impact on the data of the revenues and the total profits and on the occupation to the Eurogate Container Bremerhaven Terminal. However - it has specified - in future the role of Bremerhaven which important hub international for the traffic of the container is destined to grow".
