Parking Space Management in the Port of Hamburg


The study will look into ways to improve the utilisation rates and cost-effectiveness of existing infrastructure and facilities in the Port of Hamburg by introducing an intelligent traffic management system in both the existing and planned truck and car parks.

 The potential benefits of the project are:

  • a concept that can be transferred to other ports and locations with high industrial and non-industrial activity
  • an increased utilisation rate and cost-effectiveness of the transport infrastructure by providing information about parking space availability
  • reduced traffic volumes and fuel consumption, as well as less damage to the environment due to less trucks looking for parking bays
  • better road safety and conditions for truck drivers who will no longer have to park randomly along the roads
  • more reliable transport processes and easier planning of driving times and rest periods in line with parking space availability, time windows to provide or deliver goods and traffic information

 The study's outcomes will be used by the port authority to take decisions on the future implementation.
