Hapag-Lloyd invests in growing reefer market with largest order in its history
Hapag-Lloyd is investing a double-digit-million amount in its container fleet with an order for 6,000 (12,000 teu) of the latest generation of reefer containers.
The company is already one of the largest reefer carriers in the world today. This strong position will enable Hapag-Lloyd to benefit from increasing transport volumes not just on east-west trades, but also on north-south and Latin American trades.
“We operate a state-of-the-art reefer fleet that is the fourth-largest in the world. With the new reefers, we are expanding our leading position even further in this specialised business with its specific demands and will thus benefit from the growing reefer market,” said Rolf Habben Jansen, Chief Executive Officer of Hapag-Lloyd AG.
