Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG’s (HHLA) innovation unit, HHLA Next, has launched the new passify app to replace the previous trucker card.
The company is transitioning to passify at Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT), where truck drivers now exclusively use the passify app for terminal access.
The app reportedly enhances security by replacing physical trucker cards and ensures compliance with global ISPS code standards. Integrated into HHLA’s gate processes, passify aims to support terminal digitalisation.
The app will evolve to offer additional functionalities, including a mobile self-service terminal for centralised access to information and documents.
Following the launch at CTT, passify will also be rolled out successively at HHLA’s container terminals Altenwerder and Burchardkai over the next months.
Maren Baumgarten, responsible for the project at HHLA, said: “We have already been running the first successful tests with passify at our terminals in Hamburg since summer 2023.
“The first trucking companies have already been able to test the application and provide their feedback.
“The switch to passify that has begun at CTT will significantly increase security at our facilities in Hamburg. Thanks to passify, we are taking another important step towards the digitalisation of our terminal handling.”
Marcel Wiegand, Co-Founder of passify, added: “The introduction of passify at HHLA’s container terminals has been a great success.
“Together with the HHLA team as well as the drivers and trucking companies, we have been able to make rapid progress with the introduction over the past few months.
“We look forward to making truck handling at HHLA and other companies in the port easier, safer, and more efficient in the future by using passify.”
