During debates over Chinese shipping giant COSCO's entry into a Hamburg port terminal, skeptics raised the risk of potential strategic security issues. But also without Chinese influence, there is room for improvement, according to the ver.di services union. On November 21, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., you are invited to a maritime round table at Schiffbauerdamm 19, 10117 Berlin.
The trade union ver.di and the Central Association of German Seaport Companies e.V. (ZDS) have reached a settlement at the Hamburg Labour Court. Three more negotiation dates will be agreed by July 22, 2022 to take place by August 26, 2022 and collective bargaining will continue. During this period, no further industrial action will be taken by ver.di with the plaintiffs' employees.
"The future belongs to the smartest ports, not necessarily the largest," stated Dr. Małgorzata Bielenia from the University of Gdańsk at the 24th "Kiel Market Square". The traditional networking event of the maritime industry took place for the first time on May 31, 2022 together with foreign partners - in Kiel's Seeburg and this time in English.
HHLA achieved sales of EUR 1.46 billion in 2021, 12.7 percent more than in 2020. This was reported by Hamburger Hafen und Logistik (HHLA) at its balance sheet conference on March 24, 2022. HHLA CEO Angela Titzrath described Russia's attack on Ukraine on February 24 as a "bitter day for all peace-loving people worldwide". On that day, the port of Odessa, the most important in Ukraine, also had to close. HHLA has operated a container terminal there since 2001.
