Creating Values.Reducing environmental impact – traffic at the portForward-looking port planning aims to make transport infrastructure available to all users on anequal footing and to ensure that the port can be accessed safely and reliably in the bestpossible way. Hamburg strives to further enhance optimal coordination of both land and watertraffic – and link them with one another – with the support of digital solutions.
