Hapag-Lloyd Expanding Turkey Business

Hapag-Lloyd Expanding Turkey Business

Germany's Hapag-Lloyd will boost its Turkish operations once the integration of the United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) is complete.

Hapag-Lloyd Turkey recently became the third biggest carrier in the Turkish market. The company expects to grow its annual TEU from 230,000 to 500,000. This rise in volume was marked with the recent arrival of a 13,200 TEU Hamburg Express-class vessel, the Leverkusen Express, at the Istanbul Kumport terminal.

“The arrival of the Leverkusen Express is an important milestone for Area Turkey. The new THE Alliance service MD3 service provides us with many opportunities, since it connects Piraeus, Istanbul, Aliaga and Mersin directly with Asia. Istanbul is the main port in the Turkish rotation, especially discharging Far East Westbound cargo,” Area Manager Danny Smolders said.
