Single stop port development: Where previously various Hamburg authorities were in charge, since 2005 the Hamburg Port Authority has had sole responsibility for port management. Our path to growth and development is based on safe, efficient and economic processes.

The Port of Hamburg

This is where we are – this is what we do. The activities of the HPA cover the whole port and all its processes. Our work is as varied as the port itself.

For port customers

The better all the cogs in the port operation mesh together, the more efficient is Hamburg's port. We ensure everything runs smoothly, so everybody else can use the port's infrastructure daily in just the same smooth way.

Port of the future
