About us

Our knowledge for your business

On 19 August 2004, 56 Hamburg port pilots founded Hamburg Port Services GmbH (hps), based in Hamburg. The object of the company was to provide services of all kinds in connection with the operation of the Port of Hamburg. Today, 66 harbour pilots are shareholders of hps.

The business areas are no longer limited to the Port of Hamburg alone - our experience is also in demand internationally. Our shareholders have all been at sea as captains for many years and today work as harbour pilots in the Port of Hamburg on all types and sizes of ships. We make our knowledge available for further training, projects and specialised services.
