The Port of Hamburg's Buchardkai terminal is one of the four largest container handling terminals in Germany. Right now, there are 8 freighters waiting there. The head of the terminal management company said, "The company's situation is very tense, and we need to increase 800 shifts every month to deal with the congestion of containers and freighters."

Although the terminal management company and its parent company, the Port of Hamburg Logistics Group, are arranging employees to work overtime, the container accumulation situation on the terminal is still increasing, and the cargo processing speed cannot meet the demand, which also makes more and more containers piled up and waiting to be processed. According to Hansen, an independent director of the Port of Hamburg Logistics Group, the Butchardkai terminal is mainly responsible for handling Far East cargo, and the logistics group is currently negotiating with customers.
