HPA Port Railway tracks

The effective interface for freight and data transport

The Hamburg Port Authority has developed a new traffic management system for rail transport at the port of Hamburg called transPORT rail, which provides an effective interface for freight and data transport. Users can access the system either via an interface or via the internet (web client). Users are usually loading stations and rail transport companies, the latter can also provide their data to railway operators or other service providers, if they issue the appropriate authorisation.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of the functionalities included in the system:

• Show trains
• Pre-register train compositions
• Check the tracks
• Create transport orders
• Set the carriage destinations
• Disposition of cargo and/or carriages
• Track vehicle locations
• Transmit dangerous goods data
• Maintain master data
• Configure user settings
