Slot booking for truck visits

The container ships which are handled at the Port of Hamburg have become bigger and bigger in recent years. Bigger ships mean more truck visits in the days around the ship’s arrival. The slot-booking process for truck drivers is designed to avoid bottlenecks at the Port of Hamburg and to relieve traffic.

A handling time (slot) must always be booked at the terminal for every container transport subject to mandatory pre-announcement. A valid slot booking is needed before a truck can be processed at the terminal.
