HVCC Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center 

Coordination as a Service

The Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center (HVCC) is the central and cross-company coordination point for large vessels, feeder and barge traffic in the Port of Hamburg. We provide 24/7 operational coordination services for vessel arrivals at and departures from the Port of Hamburg - regardless of whether it is a large container vessel, a bulker, a RoRo or a cruise ship. Additionally, we offer coordination of vessel rotations within the Port of Hamburg for feeder or barge.

Our Port Collaboration Platform facilitates central communication among all major stakeholders in the Port of Hamburg. The real time data transparency, combined with the coordination service, results in an optimized vessel traffic planning and coordination between involved parties. This saves resources and emissions of port stakeholders and the port itself.
