Burchardkai (CTB)

HHLA Terminal Burchardkai is the largest and oldest facility for container handling in the Port of Hamburg. The first steel boxes were unloaded here in 1968 and today the terminal handles one in three of all containers in the Port of Hamburg. 30 container gantry cranes work on thousands of ships that tie up annually; many hundreds of rail cars are loaded and discharged every day. With the programme of expansion and modernization now in progress, terminal capacity will be extended step by step.
