A look at the changing container port volume ‘skyline’ in Europe. The movie shows the evolution of the TEU volumes between 1985 and 2016. You can see the sheer size of north European container ports (Rotterdam, Antwerp, Hamburg, etc.), the recent rise of new container hubs (Piraeus, Gdansk, Sines, etc.), the emergence of Mediterranean transhipment hubs in the mid-1990s (Algeciras, Gioia Tauro, Marsaxlokk, etc.) and the impact of the financial-economic crisis on port volumes in 2009.
