HHLA Subsidiary HCCR Integrated into Metrans Shuttle Train Network

In cooperation with Metrans, the HHLA subsidiary Hamburger Container- und Chassis-Reparatur-Gesellschaft (HCCR) has recently started to offer its customers transshipment of their empty containers onto Metrans trains right at its empties depot at Altenwerder Damm in Hamburg. The containers are then taken to their hinterland destinations on Metrans trains, thereby making unnecessary the truck-based transshipment of empties to the eastern docklands, which is both costly and harmful to the environment.

HHLA Maintains Course of Growth in Throughput and Transport

In the first half of 2013, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) increased its container throughput by 6.8 % to 3.8 million standard containers (TEU). The volume handled by HHLA’s transport companies in the newly aligned Intermodal segment also rose significantly by 21.8 % to 581 thousand TEU. The operating result (EBIT) – adjusted for one-off gains – increased slightly, but failed to match this volume growth due to continuing costs relating to modernisation and restructuring as well as the expenses associated with the flooding in the area of key hinterland connections.
