The port of Vierow is located on the southern rim of Greifswald lagoon. It specialises in the handling and storage of grain, oilseeds, animal feeds and other foodstuffs.
In the past years the port of Vierow has grown into the second largest place of transshipment for grain and animal feeds in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Ships are handled in a continuous shift system. For this service the port is certified to GMP+ B3.
At their location in Vierow, Hafen Vierow GmbH and VIELA Export GmbH have a grain storage capacity of more than 90,000 tonnes at their disposal. There is also a direct link to a semi-mobile conveyor belt for direct loading of sea-going and inland waterway vessels. In addition, the port of Vierow is in the process of receiving a railway connection with the support of the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is currently under construction and, once completed, will allow for the loading and unloading of cargo trains from 2012.
The handling performance in grain loading via the conveyor belt facility is 300 tonnes per hour, while the discharge rate of the two excavators used for handling is about 250 tonnes each per hour.
The port of Vierow has designated approx. 22 hectares of land for industrial settlement secured under planning law.
