German Ports

As an information platform, German Ports provides a wide range of data on your containers and supports you in the import and export process. Various functions are available to you, which you can use depending on your information needs.
With the „German Ports Container Tracking“ service for all terminals in Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven, you have the possibility to obtain the current status of your containers from one source. The "Ship information" function informs you about the current status of incoming or outgoing ships. With the help of the „German Ports Secure Release Order“ function, you can request release information from the carrier securely and without media breaks.

About German Ports

German Ports is a joint project of DAKOSY Datenkommunikationssystem AG and dbh Logistics IT AG. The cooperation of the two system houses ensures that the German Ports platform provides you with container and release for container information on all major German seaports (Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven).

German Ports provides you with various services for organising and monitoring your container transports. The services were developed by the specialists for port community systems, DAKOSY AG and dbh Logistics IT AG.

The integration of all stakeholders on the basis of one platform is a core function of German Ports.
German Ports Secure Release Order
The Secure Release Order should enable a standardized, secured and digital process for container releases in all major German seaports. The current process with the pin no. or release order will be substituted by a so called “pick-up right”. As a coded token, the pick-up right can be handed over by the participants over the German Ports platform. 

Instead of the uncoded reference no., the new token will be handed over within the whole supply chain up from the carrier until the driver of the truck. Only that person, which is at the moment of the pick-up, named in German Ports as the owner of the right, will be able to receive the container from the terminal.
German Ports Container Tracking
Current container information can be accessed across all locations at the most important German North Sea ports of Bremerhaven, Hamburg and Wilhelmshaven. These show the latest loading or delivery data as well as the most important status information on the progress of the respective customs process. This means that it is no longer necessary to switch to different portals depending on the port of transshipment; instead, the search for one's own container is carried out in a matter of seconds in all connected port systems.

The information is optimised for mobile devices, so that a request can be made conveniently at any time via mobile phone or tablet, even when on the move.
Ship information
Current vessel call and departure data can be retrieved from one location across all sites at the most important German North Sea ports of Bremerhaven, Hamburg and Wilhelmshaven. These show the current status of the port call or the planned arrival date. The search is carried out simply by entering the name of the vessel, the call sign or the IMO number.

This information is also optimised for mobile devices, so that an enquiry can be made quickly and easily via mobile phone or tablet at any time, even when on the move.

Expected to be available in the second half of 2023
Connection via EDI and user interface.
