One of the main tasks of the transport infrastructure at the port is making sure the companies in the Port of Hamburg can use it at all times as far as possible. We from HPA have made it our goal to guarantee safe and smooth transport in the Port of Hamburg. 

You can find all the information you need on this page regarding traffic restrictions in our area of responsibility, including the current reports from the Hamburg flood warning service (WADI).

Die Gefahr einer Sturmflut mit einer Höhe von mehr als 4,50 m über NHN besteht zurzeit nicht.
