Incoming and outgoing goods

Driving and operating instructions for transport companies personnel

Transport instructions and consignment notes for incoming and outgoing goods can be obtained from the freight office located in the port building between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm. Drive to the port through the light-controlled main gate. The gate opens automatically when a vehicle approaches the gate. The freight office is located on the side of the port building facing the sea (see the map). Consignment notes are presented to the office staff, who will give instructions concerning the assigned unloading or loading berth. Goods transport personnel arriving after 4:00 pm should report to a forklift truck driver in the area. The port gate closes at 10:45 pm, before which time everyone must leave the port area.

Provisions, spare parts, fuel, etc. to be delivered to a ship are taken direct to the ship according to a previously obtained access pass.

There is a speed limit of 30 km/h in the port area. The railway yard must be crossed to drive to unloading and loading berths. Vehicles must give way to a moving train. For safety reasons, a transport vehicle must not be driven inside the storage building without separate permission.

According to occupational health and safety legislation, drivers must wear a clearly visible safety vest or other garment of safety colour when moving around outside the vehicle in the port area.
