Diversity is the main strength of maritime business operations in Cuxhaven. Local companies and their partners in Germany as well as the rest of the world benefit from the attractive mixture of transportation and port services, offshore wind power, fishing and tourism. Many business cooperation arrangements at the site already provide huge potential for collaboration between companies operating in the port town.
The Cuxhaven Port Association (HWG) coordinates the varying interests of its member companies that represent several maritime business sectors. HWG’s aim is to publicise the strengths and potential of the site and support local business interests. The Cuxhaven Port Association represents several companies based at the port. HWG provides these companies with various types of networking activities. As a member of the Seaports of Niedersachsen GmbH, HWG represents the port and its members as part of the Lower Saxon seaports at a national and international level.
HWG acts as the interface between the maritime sector, the town’s marketing activities and regional developments. The Cuxhaven Port Association uses its contacts with local institutions like the Chamber of Industry and Commerce to look after the concerns and interests of its members and their customers in the best possible way.
