The study forecasts that the employment effect will also increase in the future through logport V in Oberhausen with over 1000 forecast jobs and through the initiated development of logport VI in Duisburg-Walsum. The plans for expansion of many logistics companies additionally point out the need to also develop more logistics areas in the region in the future.
The value added arising by the port has increased by 280 million euros to around 3 billion euros. According to the study the city of Duisburg profited disproportionately from this growth with around 200 million euros.
"These figures are impressive proof of the stable growth dynamics of the port of Duisburg. This creates jobs and value added for Duisburg and the region", according to duisport's Chief Executive Officer Erich Staake.
