Cranes, trucks, tractors, agricultural or construction machinery: ro-ro is the abbreviation for roll-on/roll-off and describes the loading process for rolling or self-propelled cargo. Special ro-ro vessels carry these movable cargoes across the seven seas to their destinations and play an increasingly important role in marine transport. Bremerhaven also offers diverse services for the transhipment and interim storage of movable cargo. Industriehafen in Bremen handles roughly 1.2 million tons of sea freight per annum, making it one of the leading European transhipment centres for rolling cargo.
Ideal conditions and professional handling: an extensive operating area of around 340,000 m², innovative equipment, modern IT and efficient transport connections to the European hinterland all enable fast and above all safe transhipment of even extremely heavy goods weighing up to 21,000 tons. This ensures that even the largest ro-ro vessels reach their destinations safely. The port on the Weser estuary is one of the world’s leading transhipment terminals for ro-ro-transports.
Anything but normal: self-propelled loads with extremely high weights call for individual management. High-powered tractors, strict compliance with special cargo securing regulations and staff that is specially trained by the manufacturing companies guarantee high quality and safety standards at the terminal – for qualified expertise in the high & heavy segment.
When it comes to responsibility, we set a good example – throughout the entire country. The twin ports fen Bremen and Bremerhaven play an important for Germany as a strong economic and export nation. As one of the most high-powered logistics centres in Europe, the port group had a highly committed workforce of around 38,000 employees in Bremen alone in 2019. But it is not only in the north of Germany that the port business creates jobs: in 2019, its gateway function provided no fewer than 344,900 secure jobs at industrial enterprises throughout Germany. Because they provide access to global markets for German export/import enterprises, the ports of Bremen play a particularly important macroeconomic role, and they do so confidently and with complete commitment. In the interests of good cooperation throughout Germany.
