Strategy & Outlook

The prime strategic objective of the Hapag-Lloyd Group is to achieve long-term profitable growth measured on the basis of developments in the transport volume and the key performance indicators of EBITDA and EBIT.

The growing global demand for container transportation is the very foundation of the organic growth which Hapag-Lloyd hopes to achieve. IHS Global Insight (March 2018) has forecast a rise in global container shipments of 5.3 % to around
148 million TEU in 2018 and a further 5.3 % to approximately 155 million TEU in 2019. Hapag-Lloyd intends to increase the transport volume organically in line with market growth.

The generation of sustainable cash flows, solid corporate financing, and therefore in particular a sufficient liquidity and equity base, are once again key cornerstones of the Hapag-Lloyd Group’s corporate strategy in the 2018 financial year.

The 2018 financial year will remain focused on the realisation of synergies from the merger with UASC as well as the continuous operational implementation of the THE Alliance. The synergies from the merger with UASC should contribute around USD 435 million a year from the 2019 financial year onwards. The Executive Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG estimates that it will be possible to achieve up to 90 % of these synergies in 2018. One-off expenses of approximately USD 3 million were incurred in the first quarter of 2018 from the transaction and implementation of the merger. It is currently assumed that further expenses of approximately USD 7 million for the full integration of UASC’s container shipping activities could be incurred by the end of the first half of 2018.
