Hapag-Lloyd (www.Hapag-Lloyd.com) continues to grow in Africa. Today the shipping company opened a new office in Kenya. While the main business will be managed from the port city of Mombasa, the company will also have an office in Nairobi, the country’s capital.

Hapag-Lloyd mainly transports agricultural products out of Kenya, in particular tea, coffee, fruit and textiles. Imports consist mainly of chemicals, foodstuffs and a wide range of plastic and rubber products.

The new office will be headed by Country Manager Prashant Sindhwani. While 19 staff will work in Mombasa, 6 will be based in Nairobi and 1 in Uganda.

Via the gateway port of Mombasa, the shipping company offers two different services. While the China Kenya Express Service (CKX) connects Kenya to some of Asia’s most important ports, such as Singapore and Shanghai, the East Africa Service (EAS2)connects the East African country to the west coast of India and Jebel Ali in Dubai. .

“Kenya is the economic hub of East Africa and the continent’s most important growth region,” said Dheeraj Bhatia, senior managing director, Middle East region at Hapag-Lloyd. “By opening our new office in Kenya, we plan to continue our robust growth on the African continent.”

Hapag-Lloyd also serves landlocked East African countries – such as Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan – with regular domestic connections to and from Mombasa. As part of its growth strategy, the shipping company will strive to develop domestic links with Somalia, southern Ethiopia and northern Tanzania.

Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd: “Our 2023 strategy aims not only to become ‘number one in quality’, but also to selected growth markets around the world. We see huge potential for growth in Africa and we will invest more in our services and some countries. “

In a congratulatory note, German Ambassador to Kenya Annett Günther said she wished Hapag-Lloyd the best for her new presence in Kenya. “Kenya, as a regional and continental trade hub, relies on strong and efficient logistics service providers. Hapag-Lloyd has served the region for many years, so it is a logical step and a good sign for the business community in Kenya, that they are now establishing a permanent presence in Mombasa and Nairobi. “

With the opening of the new office in Kenya, Hapag-Lloyd now has five offices on the continent in South Africa, Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya. In addition, Hapag-Lloyd recently opened its quality service center in Mauritius.
