Welcome to the new Port of Hirtshals

At Port of Hirtshals we have changed our visual identity, and therefore our website is also getting a boost.
During the upcoming weeks, we will therefore rebuild our website, but you can already now get a small taste of what awaits you.

Port of Hirtshals would like to signal to the outside world, that we have gone through a development from dealing with traditional port operations to offering an industrial platform, where the port is the focal point.

This is the reason why you can now see signs with the new logo at the port in Hirtshals and other places where the port communicates with the outside world. Port of Hirtshals has got a new visual identity that signals the course that the port has set out. The new visual identity signals that the port will embrace much more than before in the future.

The new logo represents four ships pointing towards Hirtshals to show that the port is a meeting point for a number of activities – both new and old. The logo is true to the port’s history as a port with a focus on fishing, fish processing, maritime service as well as passenger and freight transport, but is also points forward – symbolized by the green ship that is on its way forward and signals sustainability.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new website soon!
