Hamburg as a Fruit Port

Hamburg is Germany’s most important fruit port. Imported fruit is handled and stored at temperature-controlled facilities by HHLA’s fruit and refrigeration centre. The fruit-forwarding company Ulrich Stein then takes care of everything else to ensure that the goods reach the customer. A verifiable, closed transport and cold chain is guaranteed, and certification in accordance with the International Food Standard is a given. Containers and general cargo on the liner services arriving from South and Central America can also be handled at the O’Swaldkai multi-purpose terminal in Hamburg. To enable this, the latest technical equipment and qualified staff members are available.
