Stevedore HHLA Boosts Container Volume 15.4 Percent 2010/11/18 10:33:52
Ocean carriers added services, Baltic feeder shipments recovered strongly
HHLA, Hamburg's biggest stevedore, boosted container traffic 15.4 percent in the first nine months of 2010 from a year ago as ocean carriers added services and Baltic feeder shipments recovered strongly.
The company handled 4.25 million 20-foot equivalent units at terminals in Hamburg and Odessa, Ukraine, in the nine months to the end of September compared with 3.69 million TEUs in the same period in 2009.
Volume soared 28 percent in the third quarter to 1.6 million TEUs, and while growth will slow in the seasonally weak final three months, HHLA said it expects full year volume to be 15 percent above 2009.
