The seaport in Brake is a specialist among port service providers. One of its business divisions is the handling of forestry products like pulp, paper and timber. The port offers covered storage space of 130,000m2. It is therefore one of the most important European transshipment and distribution hubs, and is the largest German port for import of pulp.
Brake seaport places particular value on the product-specific storing and handling of all goods. As part of its Cargo Care service package, the seaport controls the quality of customers’ goods and can also readily take on claims processing for any potential damages.
Brake offers many accompanying services such as container stuffing and stripping and organizing the upstream and downstream processes. Timber trade and related business profit furthermore from its excellent railway connection. It is possible to reach all destinations with a siding within 48 hours — anywhere in Europe. And even if orders come in at short notice, a good availability of wagons assures perfect project processing as needed. Rail is an environmentally friendly transport which is becoming ever more popular with customers in the timber trade and pulp industry.
Brake seaport has been importing pulp since 1968. It has generous storage areas and guarantees gentle handling of the sensitive raw material. Also, the seaport is a significant one for the transshipment of any kind of timber. Brake offers a trimodal
connection, heavy duty cranes and expansive areas for dry storage — it also has large pre-handling areas for efficient project processing.
High-quality sawn timber, as a building material, finds its way through Brake seaport to the construction industry in the USA, North Africa and the UK at an increasing frequency. The reason for this is the state-of-the-art terminal, robust equipment, and expansive storage spaces. Because of these advantages, Brake has become a central hub for the wood and pulp processing industry.
