Abstract

Port’s seaside accessibility is one of the two most important factors influencing decisions of shipping lines for choosing or rejection the use of the port. The landside accessibility is connected to level of service which the port can offer in hinterland traffic. Both factors together have an enormous impact on port’s competitive position on the market. The paper contains overview of problems of ensuring accessibility of the port of Hamburg for container ships as well as rail or road transportation in order to maintain the current high role of Hamburg in container traffic to and from the Northern Europe.
