An increase of 20 lost-time accidents and a 57.9% higher frequency rate. The difference between 2020 and 2021 could not be more pronounced. There are several explanations. In 2021, we noticed a certain “coronavirus fatigue” and the frustrations that go with it. In addition, there were numerous changes at the terminal in 2021: creative stacking due to overcapacity, various changes in the straddle carrier parking area, relocation of the staff car park, relocation to the operations building, relocation of the release area, and changes in the truck flow.
By the end of 2021, these changes had largely been implemented and should have no longer had a negative impact on the figures. This was a positive trend that, fortunately, we were able to observe in the last few months of 2021.
