Aschaffenburg, May 10th 2012 - Under the slogan "A new strong connection: Port of Hamburg - Lower Franconia / Rhine-Main Region" an informative evening was held about the port of Hamburg on Thursday, May 3rd 2012.

Port of Hamburg Marketing e.V., Bayernhafen GmbH & Co. KG and IGS Intermodal Container Logistics GmbH had invited to a joint information session. About 100 participants listened to interesting representations about the theme of the evening "A new strong connection: Port of Hamburg - Lower Franconia / Rhine-Main Region" in the ballroom of park Schönbusch.

After a brief welcome by the Head of Representation Germany-South from Port of Hamburg Marketing Jürgen Behrens, Axel Mattern, CEO of Port Hamburg Marketing, explained the importance of the Hamburg seaport for the German hinterland. Then Joachim Zimmermann, managing director of Bayernhafen GmbH & Co. KG, gave a lecture on the role of the site architect bayernhafen as partner of the ports in the hinterland. Subsequently Bernd Trepte, director of IGS Intermodal Container Logistics GmbH, introduced the trimodal container terminal in Aschaffenburg. The conclusion of an interesting series of lectures was made by guest speaker Dirk Ewers of Logwin Network Solutions GmbH and Thorsten Kroeger of NYK Line (Germany) GmbH.

The grand finale of this successful event was the get-together of all participants and guests, which was an excellent opportunity to interchange ideas while indulging in a delicious buffet. During these conversations it became obvious that the region of Lower Franconia and the metropolitan area of Frankfurt Rhine-Main is of ever increasing importance in hinterland container traffic to Germany’s largest seaport in Hamburg. A powerful port with regular services in all major markets in the world is the basis for very easy access of many companies from all sectors of the economy in seaborne trade via Hamburg. The new rail hinterland connection with the trimodal container terminal in Aschaffenburg (TCA) established by CDN Container Depot GmbH Nürnberg and Bayernhafen GmbH & Co. KG will be a significant contribution to the economic success of this region.
