The Port of Hamburg Helps Transform a Smart City

The Port of Hamburg is embracing the IoT with an intelligent harbor operation built upon a fiber-optic backbone of consolidated networks and an integrated traffic management system for waterways, roads and rail. This allows the port to manage bridge closures and roadway congestion that typically increase when ships are offloading. The port is a major economic driver for the city and country with more than 260,000 jobs being dependent on it. Containers passing through the port are expected hit 25 million in 2025, up from 8 million in 2010. Total cargo handled is expected to reach 296 million tons in 2025 which up from 121 million tons in 2010. The port is also important for tourism, with about 500,000 cruise passengers passing through each year.
