Ueckermünde dates back to 1260, and is located between Haff and Ueckermünder Heide. The first port in the vicinity of Ueckermünde was built in 1913, and served as a regional port until 1933, after which it was used from 1935 to 1990 as an industrial port by a brick-works. The present port access route was excavated to a fairway depth of 3,9 metres in 1996.
The Port is now a modern cargo handling centre for sea and inland ships, with excellent transport connections. There is a direct link with Germany`s inland waterways via the Oder and the Peene, whilst the Haff (Kaiserkanal) provides a bridge/look-free route to the Baltic Sea and the ports in Poland, Scandinavia, the Baltic States and Russia. Goods have been sent as far distant as England, Belgium and Holland.
The A20 motorway and electrified rail routes will have a positive impact on the Ueckermünde buisness area. The north-south dock is 135 metres long and 40 metres wide; the actual utilisable length of both quays is 125 metres.
Along with these two quays, a third berth with a length 140 metres, west of the port basin (new west feeder) was developed in 2003. The main activity here is the handling of lumber and timber.
The turning area for ships is north-east of the port entrance. The port offers all the facilities and equipment of a modern cargo handling centre, including two mobile cranes plus bobcats, wheel loaders, fork-lift trucks and an electronic vehicle scale.There are around 17.000 square metres of storage space. The main goods handled here are fertilizer and pig metal. Other goods include coke, lime and plaster stone.
