Verein hamburger spediteure tarifvertrag

German labour law does not require any employer/ shipowner to apply collective bargaining agreements to employees on board of his German-flagged ships. The collective bargaining agreements in the German shipping industry (Manteltarifvertrag See and Heuertarifvertrag See) only apply, if: „Der VHSp ist organisatorisch in die überregionalen Speditionsverbände eingebunden. Über den Deutschen Speditions- und Logistikverband (DSLV) in Berlin und das Europäische Verbindungskomitee des Speditions- und Lagereigewerbes (C.L.E.C.A.T.) können die Hamburger Spediteure Einfluss auf Entscheidungen in Bonn und Brüssel nehmen. Außerdem arbeiten Hamburger Speditionsvertreter in Gremien des Weltspediteurverbandes FIATA und der Internationalen Handelskammer (ICC) in Paris mit. Im Komitee Deutscher Seehafenspediteure werden speziell die gemeinsamen Interessen der deutschen Seehafenspedition wahrgenommen.“ The current collective bargaining agreements are available for download: As early as 1884, a number of Hamburg transport operators recognised that the best way to achieve the industry’s goals was to a group. And so the Hamburg Forwarding Agents Association (“Verein Hamburger Spediteure”, or “VHSp”) was born. This career and employer association represents the interests of its 350 members at regional, national, and even international levels. The association’s internal committees discuss the industry’s priorities. Working together with the responsible union, the association negotiates wages, salaries and collective agreements for the employees of forwarding agents. Companies also benefit from comprehensive advice relating to labour and social security law. Employees can undertake in-service training at the associated “Hamburg Transport Industry Academy” (“Akademie Hamburger Verkehrswirtschaft”).

The facility, constructed at a cost of around 50 million euros, was opened in May 2016. In total, around 20,000 square meters have been allocated to logistics space for handling companies and forwarding agents. Directly adjacent to the large freight hall are 44 loading ramp positions for trucks and 36 for articulated truck-trailer combinations. A 60-meter underpass under the street, Weg beim Jaeger, means that the new airfreight facility is linked directly with the airport’s apron. HACC is based on a concept that allows for an annual capacity of around 150,000 tonnes of airfreight.
