"Passsify" app to replace trucker card at container terminals

Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) has begun testing its "Passify" app to ease truckers' access to container terminals making it safer and more efficient, a press release said Wednesday (July 18, 2023). Developed by HHLA Next, the app replaces the current truck card for handling as part of the company's efforts to step up digitalization.

More safety and efficiency

Jens Hansen, Executive Board member, remarked: “We are increasing security and efficiency considerably at our facilities in Hamburg through the app. We are working on digitalising terminal handling so that our facilities become the standard for other terminals in terms of digitalisation. HHLA is using such projects to underpin its claim to being a driver of innovation in logistics.”

Self-service going mobile at terminal

The app is set to revolutionise handling as truck access becomes safer and handling easier. More than 6,000 truck drivers, who transport containers to and from HHLA’s terminals in Hamburg every day, will have access to all the necessary information on their mobile phones thanks to "Passsify". The app is fully integrated into terminal processes and digitalises procedures at the gates. Only authorized truck drivers gain access. The app complies with all the security and data protection standards and meets all requirements of the ISPS Code. The app will be gradually rolled out to all HHLA sites in Hamburg after the test phase.
