The setting could not have been better chosen. At the transport logistic trade fair in Munich, Algis Latakas, General Director of the Klaipeda State Seaport Authority signed the declaration of accession to Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V (HHM) in a festive ceremony. "Joining Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V. is a continuation of the cooperation agreement signed between the ports of Klaipeda and Hamburg during the visit of the Minister of Transport and Communications to Germany last May," said Algis Latakas, Director General of Klaipeda State Seaport Authority.
It takes the partnership relationship between the two ports to a new level. "The entire Baltic Sea region is of utmost importance for the Port of Hamburg and Klaipeda is one of the leading ports in the Baltic States. We are pleased to welcome Klaipeda Port Authority as a new member and will intensify the cooperation between our ports," says HHM CEO Axel Mattern.
Marina Basso Michael, Regional Director Europe at HHM adds: "The deepened cooperation between the Port of Klaipeda and HHM also creates added value for our member ports in Lübeck and Kiel. There have already been many connections between them and Klaipeda for years."
