A reliable partner like HANSA‑FLEX is essential for LHG’s port operations, which combine several different services. LHG operates four port terminals along the Trave River (the Scandinavian dock, Nordland dock, Seeland dock and Schlutup). Technical services, storage, real estate, handling, haulage and transport – LHG offers everything from a single source. On request, the LHG Group will therefore take responsibility for the organisation, performance and monitoring of the entire supply chain from the loader to the recipient. However, if you are looking for the typical stacks of containers that you would find at other international ports, you will do so in vain: the various load types are moved around and stored at the LHG terminals. For example, on the Nordland dock, the crane described at the start of this article heaves huge loads that would be too large for lorry or rail transport onto ships. They can then be shipped onwards via the Elbe–Lübeck Canal.
