HHLA CONTAINER TERMINAL ALTENWERDER (CTA)
CERTIFIED “BEST IN CLASS”
In 2008, CTA became the first container terminal in the world to be certified with the CTQI standard. The customers of HHLA primarily benefit from this commendation. It reassures them of the high levels of performance and compliance with all quality standards on the premises.
“We have worked hard for this award, chiefly on behalf of our customers, the shipping companies, rail operators and haulage companies.”
Oliver Dux: , Managing Director at ALTENWERDER
Alongside criteria such as how well the terminal is equipped with container gantry cranes and how well those perform, the efficiency of loading and discharging ocean-going vessels, container trains, trucks and inland ships was also put to the test. Once internal audits had been completed by specially trained terminal employees, DNV GL conducted external audits.
CTA Managing Director Oliver Dux: “We have worked hard for this award, chiefly on behalf of our customers, the shipping companies, rail operators and haulage companies. Of particular note was that not one of the external audits in our ten areas identified any shortcomings in our processes. DNV GL even confirmed to us that we have in fact achieved further optimisations.”
