Singapore - Intro

Hapag-Lloyd Singapore is strategically located on one of the most important trade routes between East and West, China and Europe and the Straits of Malacca. At least one quarter of all cargo transported by sea now transits the narrow straits between Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

From its early history Hapag-Lloyd’s ships have passed through the Singapore Straits, and later earmarked the Port of Singapore as one of the most important and dynamic transshipment hubs in the region. In October 1991 Hapag-Lloyd  opened its own office in Singapore marking  a new chapter in the Company’s growth history in Asia. Prior to this time Hapag-Lloyd’s shipping activities in Singapore were handled by local agents.

Today Hapag-Lloyd’s Regional head office and Area South East Asia office are both based in Singapore which remains an important location for the company owing to Singapore’s importance as a major shipping, transhipment and commercial hub in the region.

Hapag-Lloyd has established itself as one of the world’s leading container shipping companies with an extensive network of services around the globe. The high brand awareness and the significance of the “Hapag-Lloyd” brand are testament to the company’s quality strategy of continuously improving the spectrum of transport services and adapting them to the needs of our customers.
