Wallmann & Co. is a terminal operator in the port of Hamburg, Germany.
Website: Quote from ‘Dispatch
of vessels’ section: “The Wallmann multi-purpose
terminal has 3 berth with -13.00 m m.l.t. water depth and a total quay length of 640 m.” Of course cranes and other specialized equipment are present. There are container and packing departments as well as a number of warehouses (accepting also hazardous goods).
Additional information such as the founding year – 1927 – is found here: No real flag in sight, only a flagoid: white field bearing a white lozenge, outlined in black,
with a black initial ‘W’ inside; radiating from the lozenge are red triangles, diminishing into points where they meet the flag’s corners.
Of course the drawing is marked “Wallmann Fahne” (i.e. flag) and moreover it is shown twice at the gates (see photo at ‘Contact’ section) but evidence of a real item – if only a table flag – would have been even better.
