Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) has launched its port call product heyport on the market.
HHLA established HHLA Next a year ago as a central unit to more quickly and precisely identify and advance innovations in the transport and logistics sector.
With heyport, HHLA Next has now developed its first product for improved communication and coordination of port calls and successfully launched it on the market.
heyport developed by HHLA Next synchronises the planning details of all participants in real time and uses a one-stop-shop design giving operating decision makers the information needed to make accurate decisions.
Berth and ship planning details contained in the platform are particularly valuable when changes are made at short notice.
Angela Titzrath, Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board, commented: “We see innovation and technical excellence as crucial elements in developing sustainable solutions, being environmentally responsible and operating successfully in line with our self-image as the ‘gateway to the future’.
“Through HHLA Next, we are thus investing in innovative businesses like heyport at an early stage, and our aim is to take advantage of the potential in shaping a sustainable future for our industry – both under our own strength and by interconnecting with other operators in the logistics sector.”
For the purpose of safe and climate-neutral transportation of goods and products worldwide, HHLA Next establishes its own companies with innovative business models or invests in innovative companies in the market.
To enable this, HHLA Next creates the conditions within the HHLA Group that are necessary for the sustainable further development of innovative ideas from its core business.
The HHLA Next team continuously monitors technological developments and trends in the transport and logistics sector so that HHLA can make use of them wherever possible at an early stage.
