The Port of Fredericia — the European dry bulk hub in Denmark.
Due to its strategically strong location in Denmark, the Port of Fredericia is an attractive hub for dry bulk activities in Denmark and Northern Europe. Situated in the middle of Denmark — and with easy access to European and overseas markets — large international companies within the dry bulk industry have consolidated their businesses at the Port of Fredericia as a central hub for their dry bulk operations.
The amount of dry bulk operations at the Port of Fredericia is growing. To secure constant development, large investments are made to ensure sufficient capacity and modern large-scale facilities for national and international customers. Due to the green transition, the demand for bioproducts is growing and, at the Port of Fredericia, the investments will continue. During the next two years, an additional five large warehouses will be established and equipped for organic and sustainable products.
Optimal conditions for dry bulk operations
The Port of Fredericia is one of Denmark’s largest deep-sea ports with storage and warehouse facilities for more than 200,000 tonnes of dry bulk products at a time, leading to an annual throughput of more than 1,000,000 tonnes. The facilities are located close to the quays, making loading and discharging of products easy and flexible.
Large turning areas and a water depth of 15 metres ensure the best possible conditions for very large bulk vessels calling the Port of Fredericia.
Investments to accommodate future demand
Last year, the shipping and stevedoring company Fredericia Shipping A/S and its partner Copenhagen Merchants invested approximately €14 million in a new silo facility at the Port of Fredericia, adding modern storage capacity of 40,000 tonnes to the present facilities. With a total capacity of 200,000 tonnes in warehouse and storage for dry bulk products, ADP and partners at the port co-operate to ensure the best possible solutions for customers within the dry bulk industry.
CEO of Fredericia Shipping A/S, Klaus G. Andersen, states: “With the new silo plant, we improve the port storage capacities to meet the increasing amounts of dry bulk expected in the future. We have already seen the effect of our large investment, giving us an advantage in a competitive bulk market”.
