Philosophy

For 165 years the services we provide have been a hallmark for successful international cooperation between many people and cultures. For a company operating worldwide, tolerance, liberal-mindedness and treating each other with respect are values we take for granted.

The Group aims to be among the industry’s innovation and quality leaders for reliability, customer orientation, efficiency, safety and environmental protection. To guarantee satisfaction for our clients, we are continually improving our processes as well as our cutting edge IT systems. Hapag-Lloyd possesses superbly trained and highly motivated staff. The Group traditionally attaches great importance to continuing staff education and training.

Hapag-Lloyd is aware that worldwide transport of goods invariably has repercussions on the environment. The shipping line requires that these be reduced as far as possible while also conserving resources. Therefore the environment and sustainability are central to Hapag-Lloyd’s corporate philosophy. Thanks to our modern fleet and the high priority accorded environmental protection in everyday business, Hapag-Lloyd is among the pioneers in the industry.

Companies invariably bear a responsibility to society generally. Hapag-Lloyd is committed to its Corporate Social Responsibility. Moreover, in 1997 the Group vested its charitable activities in Hapag-Lloyd Foundation that supports cultural, scientific and social projects.
