We will safely reach the targets set for 2018, despite an ever-changing market environment. We are further strengthening our core business through investments so that we can meet the future needs of our customers. Equally important is our search for new, digital business fields. Our overarching objective is to help our customers to transport their goods and commodities safely, quickly and efficiently from A to B - also in the future. In doing so, HHLA aims to be the gateway to the future," Angela Titzrath, Chairwoman, HHLA's Executive Board, commented.
