Container terminals in Germany – HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai in Hamburg

HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB) in Waltershof, is the probably the most well-known container terminal in the Port of Hamburg which was opened 1968. Since the first containership was unloaded here, thousands of vessels were tied up there, including the latest generation of ultra-large containerships handling 25.000 TEUs.

CTB is located on an area of around 1.4 square kilometres and is the largest container handling facility in Hamburg. The terminal operations are done efficiently with a mix of conventional storage space and automatic container block storage. Hundreds of containers are handled at the intermodal facility every day, which links the terminal to the European railway network.
