Water is mostly used in the HHLA Group to clean large-scale equipment and containers, as well as for employee hygiene. Compared to the previous year, the amount of water consumed by operations in Germany, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Ukraine fell by 2.6 % to 97,344 m3 in 2018 (previous year: 99,951 m3). This reduced consumption is largely due to the return to service of a chemical/physical water treatment plant for cleaning large-scale equipment at the Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB). HHLA’s facilities draw water from the public supply network.
In maritime logistics, a terminal is a facility where freight transported by various modes of transport is handled.
