Growing demand in Turkey: Hapag-Lloyd has become a major player

Within only a few years, Hapag-Lloyd Turkey has grown from being a minor player to the third biggest carrier in the Turkish market. After the integration of UASC is completed, Area Turkey will have more than doubled in size, from about 230,000 TEU yearly to almost 500,000 TEU.

Within only a few years, Hapag-Lloyd Turkey has grown from being a minor player to the third biggest carrier in the Turkish market. This development recently peaked with the first ever call of a 13,200 TEU “Hamburg Express” class vessel, the “Leverkusen Express” at the Istanbul Kumport terminal.   

With the new MD3 Service Hapag-Lloyd offers direct, fast and reliable service connections between Turkey and Asia

With more than 5,500 moves at Kumport terminal, the vessel - which operated in the new THE Alliance MD3 service - has set the record for the highest move-count to date in the Terminal. “The arrival of the “Leverkusen Express” is an important milestone for Area Turkey. The new MD3 service from THE Alliance provides us with many opportunities, since it connects Piraeus, Istanbul, Aliağa and Mersin directly with Asia. Istanbul is the main port in the Turkish rotation, especially discharging Far East Westbound cargo”, says Area Manager Danny Smolders.

With the MD3 Service, Hapag-Lloyd offers customers a new direct service connection from Istanbul, via Aliağa and Mersin to the Middle East and Asia.

“With the capacity of our modern 13.200 TEU class vessels and our considerable growth we’re clearly up for some nice challenges here in Turkey, however, we’re ready and look forward to taking them on,” he added. After the integration of UASC is completed, Area Turkey will have more than doubled in size, from about 230,000 TEU yearly to almost 500,000 TEU.

Dedicated staff in four offices serving customers all across Turkey

With dedicated and committed staff in our 4 sales offices (Istanbul, Izmir, Mersin, Bursa) Hapag-Lloyd wants to further increase value for our customers in Turkey.
