Hapag-Lloyd is now opening its own offices in Morocco. With this additional presence in the country, the company continues to achieve its growth ambitions in the most attractive markets in North Africa.
Morocco, being an important platform for the export of fresh produce, is part of Hapag-Lloyd’s development strategy in the refrigerated container transport sector.
Morocco is perfectly connected to the global Hapag-Lloyd network through the port of Tanger-Med, which is a strategically important port for the entire logistics industry. Last year, Hapag-Lloyd acquired a 10% stake in Container Terminal 3 (TC3) at the Port of Tanger-Med 2.
“The Moroccan economy has grown steadily in recent years. Many Moroccan customers have already experienced Hapag-Lloyd’s services. With the opening of our new representation in the country, we are striving to meet customer demands for proximity and quality of service,” said Juan Pablo Richards, Senior Managing Director Region South Europe at Hapag-Lloyd.
Hapag-Lloyd’s presence in Morocco is provided by three offices headquartered in Casablanca and two satellite offices in Tangier and Agadir. 47 shipping experts are eager to serve customers across the country.
