Brake is a modern, multi-functional specialty port, which successfully fills the gap as a niche port among the large European all-round ports through fast turnovers, versatility and a wide range of services.
The Seaport of Brake is located 26 kilometers upstream, on the sea ship navigable waters of the Weser Delta. The southern port area serves as a cargo handling spot for feed stock and grain, while the northern section with its heavy load capable Niedersachsenkai (Niedersachsen Quay) offers additional berths for two very large cargo ships and is utilized for the handling of forestry products, iron, steel and the transshipment of industrial machinery. Within the Binnenhafen (inner harbor), accessible via sea lock, coasters and barges can be cleared and handled for further European logistics.
As of early July, 2016, the structural upgrade of the South Pier will make room for berthing two ships with a length of up to 275 meters and a draft of up to 11.90 meters. This will create additional cargo handling capacities for the rapidly growing AGRI sector.
