With a population of only 100,000, Bremerhaven punches far above its weight when it comes to shipping and trade. Situated on the North Sea at the end point of the Weser River, Bremerhaven is home to the 16th-largest cargo port in the world and the fourth largest in Europe.
Each year, Bremerhaven’s port handles up to 5.5 million containers and more than 2 million vehicles. Its port, the longest in the world, has 15 docks to accommodate large container ships. As such, it is a vital center for logistics and distribution for Germany, Europe and the world.
In the broader Bremerhaven and Bremen region, shipping accounts for about 30 percent of the economy. Some 40,000 people work for more than 1,300 shipping and logistics companies. Bremerhaven’s port is an important intermodal distribution node, with connections to rail and highways. Industrial properties and warehouses are located near the port and along the A27 autobahn that connects Bremerhaven to Bremen.
Prologis operates industrial properties and warehouses in the Bremerhaven area.
