Bremerhaven (Bremen), Germany, was the home port for the North German Lloyd Steamship Co. These ocean liners usually traveled the North Atlantic route and docked at North German Lloyd's American home port, Hoboken.

Bremen was an important port of departure for many East European immigrants who arrived in Hoboken on their way to be processed at Ellis Island. Bremen was also the ancestral home or part of the homeland for a great many Hoboken residents who were from Germany.
