Main port activities are the handling of containers, automobiles, fruit, dry bulk cargo and passengers. The port is divided into the Uberseehafen area and the Fischereihafen area. Except for the Columbus and Strom Quays along River Weser (container, passenger and part of the fruit terminal), the port is protected by locks. The Fischereihafen area is located to the south of the river Geeste and is divided into five basins, enclosed by the Doppelschleuse locks. All other port areas are accessed via Nordschleuse and Kaiserschleuse.
On the east bank of the River Weser, 60 km. downriver from Bremen.
