Both subgroups, the listed Port Logistics subgroup and the Real Estate subgroup, contributed to the good start this year, the company noted. A 2.6 % increase in container handling was recorded, while container transport declined by 5.3 % due to the realignment of Polzug's activities. Revenue in the Port Logistics subgroup was up 3.3 %.

Looking ahead, HHLA confirmed its target for the current financial year of at least keeping revenue stable on par with the high level of the previous year and achieving considerably higher EBIT in the Port Logistics subgroup and at Group level.
