Port of Hamburg Press Conference, First Half-Year 2013

The Port of Hamburg achieves above-average growth and expands market position in 2013 first half

Total throughput in the Port of Hamburg in the first six months of 2013 reached 68.1 million tons (+ 3.5 percent). Both on imports and exports of general and bulk cargoes, results were positive. Totalling 46.5 million tons, the container handling that predominates in Hamburg as a universal port totalled 4.5 million TEU (20-ft standard containers), representing a 2.1 percent increase.

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.

HHLA handles world’s largest container ship

Hamburg was the first continental European port of call on the maiden voyage of the CMA CGM Marco Polo. The mega-ship, with a capacity of 16,020 standard containers, is being handled at the HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai. The French shipping company CMA CGM sets great store by Hamburg because of its geographic location and hinterland links.
