HVCC and Kotug Smit Towage optimise conditions of entry at the Port of Hamburg

Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center (HVCC) and tug shipping company Kotug Smit Towage will in future work closely together at the Port of Hamburg in order to coordinate preliminary planning for ship calls and departures, and the associated tug services. This step will further optimise the efficiency and quality of ship handling in the Port of Hamburg.

Increased networking for the benefit of ports and ships

Processes on ships and at ports should become more efficient and more environmentally friendly. In order to reach this shared goal through the digital exchange of standardised data, representatives of the maritime industry gathered to discuss further action on Tuesday, 17 July 2018.

Improves service for shipping company customers

The HVCC Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center and the Rotterdam Port Authority have entered into a cooperative relationship, the likes of which the world has never seen before: from now on, both ports will exchange relevant data through a digital interface so that shipping companies can steer their ships more efficiently and terminals can optimise their resource planning. This cooperation therefore improves the operational processes, while also making both ports more attractive.

The HVCC Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center is a joint venture between the two container terminal operators in the Port of Hamburg, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) and EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg GmbH (CTH).
