Port of Hamburg - Prepared for the future
The Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) manages the entire port area in Hamburg. It leases the areas and takes care of the infrastructure. This means that the HPA is responsible for the quays, roads, bridges and dredging the fairway, while approximately 1.500 companies take care of their facilities and cranes.
The stakeholders of the Port of Hamburg are well prepared for the future. The digitalization strategy of the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) and the port companies gives Hamburg a leading role in various areas such as sustainability, virtual reality or drone use, both under water and in the air.
No other port has a system like the Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center (HVCC), which coordinates ship calls and advises shipping companies on how they can call at the port without any problems and still save expensive fuel. Incidentally, this also reduces CO2 emissions. The HVCC now serves as a role model for traffic control worldwide.
