In response to increased demand for storage and shipping-out areas, the board of directors of Port Esbjerg has agreed to the construction of a new 40,000m2 multi-terminal in the eastern port area.

The new DKK15m terminal will be west of the existing multi-terminals in the eastern port and will have direct access to the three ramps already established at the quay. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

“We can see increased demand for sites for the storage and shipping-out of cargo, cars and containers, as well as components for the wind turbine industry,” explained Dennis Jul Pedersen, port director at Port Esbjerg. “The new terminal is intended to meet that demand, giving our customers the best possible conditions for running and developing their business,” he added.

Boost to sea routes’ popularity

In 2018, Port Esbjerg handled 4.4m tonnes of cargo, as a hub for RoRo traffic, with six fixed liner services and connections to more than 25 ports. Port Esbjerg is also Denmark's largest hub for car imports, which are increasingly held in stock at ports.

Besides car imports and cargo, the port also expects the terminal to improve opportunities to ship out heavier project cargo, such as components for the wind turbine industry, and for the consignment of heavy machinery such as agricultural equipment.

An invitation to tender for the construction of the new terminal will be announced during the new few weeks.
