I tend to disagree; but in any case, I find it difficult to say based on just that 2-page PDF. Either way, I will stick by my suggestion on this one. Please do consider posting your suggestion so that others may vote (even if it is "after the fact"). =)
I'm not suggesting that they only provide hoses but they use the phrase "port-to-port solution" in conjunction with hydraulic connections and most definitely not in the meaning of "harbor to harbor" (see your link)!!
You'll notice that, on page 2 of the PDF you linked, the company is offering "port-to-port solutions" for a wide array of products, not just hoses (which they supply from four different manufacturers).
Geht es hier überhaupt um den Transport? "port-to-port" wird auch im Bereich Fluidtechnik verwendet, quasi Anschluss zu Anschluss und bezeichnet da komplette Lösungen für Schlauchverbindungen (Schlauch, einschließlich Armarturen).
