Innovation since 1885

HHLA was founded in 1885 and since then has carried the genes of a start-up in its DNA. Back then, when the company built the gigantic and state-of-the-art Speicherstadt historical warehouse district, the industry was making the transition from 1.0 to 2.0.  Today, the company is experiencing profound changes, not only socially but also in terms of science and technology.

Without innovation and the ambition to always stay up to speed with the latest trends and technologies, the road for HHLA would not have been successful. Self-renewal is and will remain in our DNA. These pages offer an overview of current research, development and digitisation projects, as well as of the modern and sustainable technology used by HHLA.
