The Port of Gothenburg in Sweden has become a port and logistics location member of Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM).
According to the port, membership of Port of Hamburg Marketing will give Gothenburg access to the HHM marketing platform and its worldwide activities.
During the transport logistic trade fair in Munich, the joint managing directors of PoHM Ingo Egloff and Axel Mattern accompanied by Marina Rimpo, head of market development Baltic region at HHM, visited the Port of Gothenburg's stand and presented the PoHM membership certificate to Magnus Karestedt, CEO Gothenburg Port Authority.
"Membership of Port of Hamburg Marketing will connect us to international activities as a port and logistics location, giving us presentation opportunities and also facilitating constructive cooperation on transportation and port topics that affect us both," explained Karestedt. "Hamburg, with its tightly meshed network of worldwide liner services and strong feeder network in the Baltic region is of major importance for Sweden's seaborne exports and therefore absolutely complementary to Gothenburg.
"We will use our membership in Port of Hamburg Marketing to build-up contacts with HHM members and companies from the fields of shipping, transport and logistics, as well as exporting and importing industrial and trading companies," he added. "We are looking forward to cooperation and joint events with Port of Hamburg Marketing."
