Hapag-Lloyd’s largest vessels to call Nigerian ports

Hapag-Lloyd intends to deploy some of the largest vessels able to call at Nigerian ports and set up a new service for West Africa which will call directly to Nigeria
This is following its renewed a liner agency agreement with GAC Nigeria and merger with the United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) earlier this year.
Under the extended agreement, GAC will handle all aspects of Hapag-Lloyd/UASC’s business in Nigeria including husbandry services, sales, customer service and the import and export of a large number of containers.
Five years ago, Hapag-Lloyd and GAC Nigeria signed their first liner agency agreement for which a dedicated team and office was set up specifically to handle all of its activities in the country.
The merger of the two shipping lines is expected to result in a substantial increase in business for Hapag-Lloyd in Nigeria, prompting significant investment in office assets and personnel by GAC Nigeria to meet the demands of additional business, GAC said.
