Rostock Becomes New Silk Road Hub with Liebherr Cranes

The first containers of the New Silk Road have been loaded in the port of Rostock. EUROPORTS Germany used their recently acquired Liebherr LHM 550 mobile harbour cranes to quickly load the containers from Xi’an in China. EUROPORTS Germany plans to expand Rostock into a distribution centre and also to connect Sweden and Italy to the New Silk Road link.

After a long period of preparation, the first containers of the New Silk Road were loaded at the beginning of April in Rostock’s overseas port. The containers started their journey in the Chinese city Xi’an, which marks the eastern point of the Silk Road. The containers were loaded with electrical appliances, car parts and other consumer goods from China. After a 10,000-kilometre journey, they were transferred from ship to rail by EUROPORTS Germany using Liebherr mobile harbour cranes in the overseas port of Rostock.
