Emden is located 38 nautical miles upstream of the Ems estuary. It consists of a non-tidal inland harbour and a tidal deep water harbour. The deep water harbour can be approached by vessels with a draught of up to 9.50 m, and up to a maximum of 11.70 m, depending on tidal conditions. The non-tidal inner harbour- Germany's largest - can be accessed via two sea locks. In addition to RoRo ramps, container gantry cranes and loading ramps, there are also handling- and storage facilities for liquid bulks at the Port. Mainly handled cargoes include automobiles, forest products, liquid chalk, kaolinite, mineral substances, containers and wind turbine components.
