Hamburg boosts trade relations with India

Positive developments in economic relations between Germany and India have led to a significant uptick in imports and exports between the two countries in recent years. The Port of Hamburg anticipates setting a new record for seaborne cargo handling with India in 2023.

Capitalizing on this optimistic trend, representatives from the Port of Hamburg seized the opportunity to strengthen ties during a reception held in Mumbai, India.

"We are delighted that more than 100 guests accepted our invitation. It shows how important personal dialogue is for maintaining and expanding business relations. Given the positive development of trade relations between India and the Port of Hamburg, we are confident that the exchange of goods will continue to increase," stated Axel Mattern, a member of the executive board of Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM).

The event was jointly organized by HHM, the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA), Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), and a. hartrodt GmbH & Co KG.

Currently, the Port of Hamburg maintains connections with India through eleven liner services, encompassing five container liner services, three vehicle transport services, and three breakbulk services, catering to heavy cargo.

These services serve major Indian ports such as Nhava Sheva, Mundra, Mumbai, Chennai, Ennore, Kolkata, Cochin, Kandla, Visakhapatnam, Krishnapatnam, Hazira, Haldia, and, as of December 2023, Kattupalli.

Moreover, there are seven container services and one multi-purpose liner service to the port of Colombo in Sri Lanka, which is a crucial port for transshipment with India. The average transit time between Hamburg and the Indian subcontinent stands at around two weeks for the west coast and three weeks for the east coast.

The deepening trade connections between Germany's major port and India underscore successful cooperation and indicate the potential for sustained growth and mutual reinforcement between these economic regions, according to the statement by the Port of Hamburg.
