CONTAINER TRANSPORT, SEAPORTS AND THE GERMAN FEDERAL RAILWAY

CONTAINERVERKEHR, SEEHAEFEN UND DEUTSCHE BUNDESBAHN

The world's containership fleet at the beginning of 1974 totalled about 900 units with a capacity of nearly 450,000 TEU (20-ft). Containerization demands huge investments. Hapag-Lloyd, for example, spent almost 1,000 million DM for their containerships and associated equipment, while the German Federal Railway has invested about 500 million DM in terminals, staddle carriers, chassis and tractors. The great number of containers also demands completely new planning concepts for the layout of handling facilities, and large quay areas are required. Future problems in container traffic will be not so much technical but more related to information and organization. The Author seeks to review all these questions, with special reference to the ports of Bremen and Hamburg.
