Hamburg Port info live on your smartphone

Hamburg Port info live on your smartphone

(Posted on 20/12/22)

Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V. (HHM) has published a new Port of Hamburg app and added numerous functions to it. It now offers comprehensive information for everyone - whether transport and logistics experts or port and ship enthusiasts.

One highlight is the "Port live" function. It shows what the user is seeing in his or her port environment. If the smartphone is held in the direction of a ship, for example, it is identified and the app displays its name in a so-called augmented reality. With a click, users receive further information about the ship and photos of it. The terminals and the companies located in the port are also displayed via "Port live".

This function is just one of eight in the new Port of Hamburg app. From small barges to mega container carriers - over 20,000 ships are stored in the ship database with pictures and detailed information. They can be filtered by length, width or carrying capacity, among other things. The app also shows which ships are expected to arrive in the next 48 hours. The sailing list of the cruise ships even includes the calls for the entire current year. A virtual journey through the port is made possible by the "Port Map", here all terminals and ships currently in the port are displayed.

The new app also provides a comprehensive overview of the liner services by water and rail. The "Liner Services" database contains all shipping connections between Hamburg and around 1,000 ports worldwide that are regularly called at. The intermodal database in turn contains an overview of regular train connections between Hamburg and German, European and Chinese destinations. In addition, the regular inland waterway transports via Hamburg are listed here.

Anyone interested in the latest news about the Port of Hamburg and the maritime industry will also find what they are looking for in the new app. It also offers a comprehensive media library with many videos and information materials. So that port fans don't miss anything in future, push notifications can be set for various areas.

The Port of Hamburg app is now available for smartphones with Android or Apple iOS operating systems.
