Hamburg-based Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) reported an increase in container throughput, with 7.6 million standard containers (TEU) handled at its container terminals in the 2019 financial year.
According to preliminary unaudited figures released last week, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) increased its revenue by 6.8% to € 1.38 billion in the 2019 financial year.
Also, the Group’s operating result (EBIT) of € 222 million grew by 8.8%.
The 7.6 million TEUs handled in 2019 is 3.3% more than in the previous year (7.3 million TEU).
Container throughput at the three container terminals in Hamburg slightly exceeded the high level achieved the previous year, while throughput at the international HHLA container terminals in Odessa (Ukraine) and Tallinn (Estonia) was significantly above the previous year’s level,
However, the figures for the previous year are only partly comparable as the container terminal in Tallinn was first integrated into the HHLA consolidated group at the end of the second quarter of 2018, HHLA noted.
In addition, with a transport volume of 1.57 million TEU, HHLA’s Intermodal activities exceeded the previous year’s results by 5.7%.
The group recently revealed its ambition to become climate-neutral until 2040.
