HHLA operates in a technically demanding and economically dynamic environment. Our services stand out amongst global competition, while our costs, of course, remain competitive. This competitiveness also depends on the quality, service and innovative capabilities of our suppliers.
Procurement for the HHLA Group is managed and coordinated centrally by the Purchasing department. HHLA staff members ensure that all the required products and services are always available. Here, HHLA relies on partners that set worldwide standards in terms of quality, cost and innovation. The strategic and collaborative inclusion of our suppliers in the development of products, facilities and processes is of the highest importance. HHLA’s Purchasing department has therefore developed a consistent supply management. It regularly tests and evaluates all suppliers with regard to the following criteria: reliability, quality, innovation capabilities, flexibility and cost structure. We establish long-term and fair relationships with the best in every sector.
