Ranking 1 Rotterdam

Ranking 1 Rotterdam (Holland) An overall transshipment of 448 million tons in the year 2013 lifts the Port of Rotterdam to first place in our ranking. This tidal harbor lying in the Rhine-Maas Delta at the mouth of the River Rhine (on the North Sea) has an area of 30,888 acres of land and water, around 14,826 acres of this are commercial areas. The harbor displayed a growth rate of 0.3 percent between 2012 and 2013, and from1997 to 2013 of 1.8 percent. 4 Amsterdam (Holland) After Rotterdam, the port of Amsterdam is the second largest port in Holland and in 2013 occupied fourth place in the ranking for performance in the whole of Europe. In the year mentioned 102.7 million tons of goods were transshipped, with a growth rate of 33.9 percent between 2012 and 2013. This rate is a record result in our ranking and is also reflected in the growth rate of six percent in the period 1997 to 2013. What is more the entire harbor district of Amsterdam is not tidal. PORTS LOGISTICS 2 Antwerp(Belgium) According to information from the operator of the port, with over 32,200 acres Antwerp has the largest harbor region in the world. The street network in the port is 254 miles long, the rail network is 659 miles long, the dockside is 97 miles long. In 2013, 189.6 million tons of goods were transshipped in the Port of Antwerp. With a 4.5 percent growth rate between 2012 and 2013 and of 3.2 percent from 1997 to 2013, the port is on an upwards path with reference to its performance. 3 Hamburg (Germany) Some 10,000 ships enter every year, with approximately300 berths at over26 miles of quay walls for sea-going ships, more than 1,000 freight trains per week – these are only a few of the factors making the port of Hamburg into a flexible and universal harbor. In 2013, 132.9 million tons were loaded over the edge of the quay in the largest German sea port, with a growing trend. The rate of growth of transshipments from 2012 to 2013 was 6.2 percent, from 1997-2013 it was 3.5 percent. 5 Marseille (France) The sea freight port of Marseille (Marseille Euro port), in many cases also called Euro port du Sud (European Port of the South), is the most important sea port in France and the largest on the Mediterranean according to transshipment turnover. In 2013 the amount transshipped was 83.9 million tons which meant a reduction of -6.8 percent compared to 2012. For this reason Marseille was forced back from fourth place to fifth place in the ranking by the port of Amsterdam. This negative growth rate also had an influence on the rate of growth over a longer period, so that between 1997and 2013 a negative rate of growth for goods handled of -1.2 percent must be indicated. 6 Algeciras (Spain) The modern port of Algeciras in Spanish frequently visited port with a transshipment performance of 82.3million tons of freight in 2013. A large part of the shipping here concerns traffic to and from Africa. With its modern container terminal the port managed to reach the top ten in the world. The rate of increase from 2012 to 2013 was 0.1 percent, from 1997-2013 it was 5.0 percent. f+h Distribution 1/2016

7 Le Havre (France) The city of Le Havre situated in north west France is a petro-chemical center with numerous refineries and is heavily dependent on its sea port, which is one of the largest in France. The handling of goods takes place in the long drawn out port at the entrance and the exit to the English Channel waterway. In 2013, 70.9 million tons of goods were transshipped via the port of Le Havre, a growth of 8.7 percent over the year before and an increase of 0.6 percent in the period from 1997 to 2013. 8 Immingham (UK) Immingham is a small English city on the River Humber situated close to the North Sea. The sea port there is one of the strongest performing in the United Kingdom. Its position – only 200 miles away from London and Edinburgh – makes it an ideal link between the sea routes to and from continental Europe and the overland route in the heart of Great Britain. In the year 2013 69.9 million tons were transshipped in Immingham, the increase in performance between2012 and 2013 was 4.2 percent and in the period from 1997 to 2013 there was an increase of 1.7 percent. 9 Izmit (Turkey) The country of Turkey distinguishes itself in global economics with its strategic geographic position between Europe and Asia. The transport routes out of Turkey to markets in Europe as well as to the markets in the Middle East, Russia, and also to Central Asia and Iran are comparatively central and short. Turkey’s international transport of goods is characterized above all by the sea routes, which help the Port of Izmit with a transshipment volume of 66.9 million tons in 2013 to place nine in our ranking. Between 1997 and 2013 on average no increase in performance can be detected. 10 Botas (Ceyhan,Turkey) Whatever is true for Izmir is also true for the port of Botas (Ceyhan) Turkey. Its logistical proximity to Europe and the Middle East is a great advantage of the location. The amount transshipped in 2013 of 61.8 million tons lay just below the value in Izmir. On average in the period from 1997 to 2013, on average no increase in performance can be shown here either.
