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.
