The OECD has for five years analyzed some of the world's largest port cities to find a formula for coexistence, leading to economic growth through a well-integrated strategic cooperation between city and port. If OECD results are transferred to the Danish port sector, Danish ports create an annual total value of 58 billion kroner to the Danish society.

"When the government's growth plan for the Blue Denmark is to be evaluated in the spring of 2015, OECD will provide port analyzes specific input on the blue growth agenda. By supporting the development of Danish ports, the OECD to achieve growth and jobs in Denmark. So the growth plan Blue Denmark must consider this," says Gitte Lillelund Bech, director of the Danish Ports.

OECD analysis shows that a ton of freight revenue generates on average $ 100 in value. For every ton of freight turnover there is, 300 new jobs are generated in the short term. The Danish ports had in 2013 one cargo turnover of slightly more than 88 million tons. This corresponds to almost 58 billion kroner in added value and 26,400 maritime jobs. In addition, derivative and indirect jobs in other industries, service companies and clusters. In Denmark, between 60,000 and 70,000 Danes work on or adjacent to a port.
