THE MARITIME ECONOMY IN OLDENBURGThe port of Oldenburg is a municipal sea and inland port and is divided into the port areas "Dalbenstraße", "Nordkaje" and "Osthafen". Pier facilities and transshipment facilities are partly owned by the resident transshipment companies, but partly also owned by the City of Oldenburg (own port operation).In the port of Oldenburg, in addition to the transshipment and storage of goods, they are also processed and refined:Feed and feed supplements are produced in Oldenburg and some of them are exported across Europe and to the Middle East.In the Osthafen, precast concrete parts are manufactured from raw materials delivered by water and delivered to the entire region.Secondary raw materials (scrap metal) are exported from the Oldenburg port to China.Building materials that are delivered to the port of Oldenburg by ship form the basis of many building projects in the region and beyond.

Oldenburg is one of the most heavily handled inland ports in Lower Saxony. Every year, an average of 1,000 inland vessels and 60 seagoing vessels moor in the port of Oldenburg.In the “Alter Stadthafen” port area close to the city center, around 40 river cruise ships per year can be handled at the modern pier for passenger ships, which went into operation in 2019.Sports boats and sailing boats can also moor in Oldenburg in the middle of the city.The Oldenburg port offers jobs for around 400 people and is therefore an important economic factor in the city.
