The Port of Rostock with its extensive ferry and ro/ro-terminal, modern oil harbour, facilities for grain, coal, fertilizer and cement throughput, terminals for the export of timber and break-bulk is the most important universal port at the German Baltic Sea coast. The main business with a share of 60% is the ferry and ro/ro traffic to destinations in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Lithuania. With a huge intermodal hinterland transport network, the port offers environmentally friendly transport solutions from Northern Europe to Western, Central and Eastern Europe and is a real hub. Large investments in the past and planned investments for the future guarantee a well maintained and customer focussed infrastructure.

Both the port and the region are part of the TEN-T core network transport corridors 'ScanMed' and 'Orient-EastMed'. The integration into both important transport corridors demonstrates the strategic location of the port and region and its capability for transport flows across the continent. In order to provide sufficient and high-capacity transport infrastructures and transport opportunities, the port is engaged in different transnational cooperation projects financed by the European Union such as  the Connecting Europe Facility as well as INTERREG . This allows to learn from other regions located along the corridors how they manage increasing volumes and to avoid potential infrastructure or transport capacity bottlenecks. And it enables the port to approach of political stakeholders regarding a well-coordinated and balanced transport policy jointly with the cooperation partners.

As integral part of the ScanMed corridor we even support in the future any initiative focussing on the development of efficient transport corridors. The Scandria®Alliance as platform, bringing together political decision makers from different regions as well as representatives of the logistics industry is working on the same overall aim of improved transport capacities. Only such a collaboration can  ensure that common goals may be achieved.


ROSTOCK PORT CEO Jens-Aurel Scharner


"The cooperation within the Scandria partnership and the Scandria®Alliance allows a further development of new or improved multimodal services along the corridor, the deployment of clean fuel technologies even in the maritime industry and a concentrated approach of all political stakeholders as well as economic groups to promote the capacities of the corridor and its capabilities now and in the future." says Jens-Aurel Scharner, CEO of ROSTOCK PORT.
