On the occasion of the 9th National Maritime Conference in Bremerhaven on 19 and 20 October, the Ministry presented its brochure "Germany - Smart at Shipping", an overview of the performance and achievements of the German shipping industry.
Germany is one of the largest seafaring nations in the world. In the container shipping sector, Germany is at the top of the league table, with an international market share of around 30 percent. The German shipping industry generates an annual turnover of more than 50 billion euros. All this is the basis of Germany's success as the number one mobility country and as the logistics world champion.
