Maritime Cluster Northern Germany: the network for the maritime industry
Five Northern German countries – one maritime cluster! The Maritime Cluster Northern Germany (MCN) promotes and develops cooperation in the Northern German maritime industry. MCN creates dialogue platforms for stakeholders, so they can interact with each other, and it promotes interfaces with other industries.
Brunsbüttel Ports GmbH is within the Schramm Group owner and operator of the ports at Brunsbüttel. With its strategic location on the lower river Elbe and the Kiel-Canal, Brunsbüttel offers direct access to North Sea and Baltic Sea, access to European inland waterways and available industrial areas within close distance to the port.
These advantages make the ports at Brunsbüttel an attractive transshipment center for the largest contiguous industrial area in northern Germany and the Metropolitan Region of Hamburg. Especially the Elbehafen as universal port combines extensive customer focus with logistical competence and efficient transport connections.
