The Hamburg Port Authority and HERE improve truck traffic management in the Port of Hamburg

The Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) collaborates with HERE Technologies, the location data and technology platform, to better manage truck traffic in the Port of Hamburg.

Within the port, digital information boards ("Dynamic Information on traffic Volumes in the Area of the port", DIVA) provide truck drivers with traffic-relevant information to navigate them through the port. With HERE's Corridor Travel Time-as-a-Service solution, the HPA can now better monitor the traffic situation on relevant road corridors and manage the flow of traffic. The existing information boards can then also show information on current travel times to key destinations such as cargo transfer points - all without the need for additional hardware in the road sections under consideration.

HERE’s solution is based on vehicle sensor data and utilizes services like HERE Real-Time Traffic and HERE Routing to provide fresh and flexible travel time information. It is easy to set up via an application programming interface (API) and quick to deploy, minimizing development and integration efforts for customers.
