In Today's Daily Jigsaw Puzzle, we visit the Port of Hamburg on the Elbe River in northern Germany. It is the country's largest port and one of Europe's busiest.

Hamburg was established in 1189 when Emperor Frederick I granted it the status of a free imperial city, allowing tax-free import and export along the Elbe. The port, founded in the same year, has since evolved into a crucial logistics hub for trade between Central and Eastern Europe and the global market.

Covering approximately 7,200 hectares, the port features state-of-the-art infrastructure, including container terminals, general cargo terminals, and extensive storage areas. In 2023 alone, the Port of Hamburg handled around 130 million tons of cargo, including over 8.5 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers. It accommodates various goods, from bulk commodities like coal and ore to high-value items such as electronics and automobiles. Additionally, the port is a major center for shipbuilding and repairs.

Hamburg's city has been significantly influenced by the port. The port employs around 156,000 people, directly and indirectly, and plays a crucial role in the local economy.

The port is strategically connected to a vast network of railways, highways, and inland waterways, ensuring efficient distribution across Europe.
