Attracting businesses

Cruise shipping is significant for tourism in Hamburg and for the entire value-added logistics chain. Many companies utilise the port city’s infrastructure in order to steer their global service centrally from the Hanseatic City. Innovative technology companies and an active start-up scene are flanked by maritime know-how and a widely ramified network of specialist services.

Increasing ship’s calls and rising passenger numbers have considerably boosted value creation at the location in recent years. According to a study by the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, value creation amounts to approximately 420 million Euro per year. The task of HCN e.V. is to advertise the positive trend in cruise shipping and the location’s advantages in order to gain further cruise liners and service providers for Hamburg, in co-operation with Hamburg Invest.
