PRISE - Port River Information System Elbe

PRISE is the world’s only information platform for all ship arrival and departure paths in the port of Hamburg. It has been specifically tailored to the needs of the Port of Hamburg and developed by DAKOSY on behalf of the container terminals HHLA and Eurogate.

It supplies terminals, pilots, carriers/brokers, tugs, belayers and the harbour master’s office with a wealth of up-to-date information. The data provided includes berth planning and registration at the terminals, status information about ship positions on the Elbe from the "Deutscher Bucht" to the "Leinen fest" mooring, ship notifications from the Elbe pilots, responsibility reports for tugboats and belayers as well as water level predictions from the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).

It is only by accessing this information that all parties are able to cope with the increasing complexity of planning and implementing the growing number of large container shipments. Thanks to PRISE, the planning capacity of the Elbe waterway as well as ship movements within the port have been improved and the overall traffic flow accelerated.

In a consortium with HVCC and HPC, the globally unique software is being further developed.

PRISE has been part of the HVCC since June 2019. Initiated and financed by the two terminal operators HHLA and EUROGATE, developed and operated by DAKOSY, the platform was launched in the Port of Hamburg in 2014. HVCC Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center is a joint venture of HHLA and EUROGATE. For over 10 years it has been the central, neutral and inter-company coordination centre for large ship, feeder and inland waterway transport in the Port of Hamburg. HVCC's service portfolio is being continuously developed. Currently, further interfaces to partners in the Port of Hamburg and other ports are being implemented.
