Continuing its expansion in Africa Hapag-Lloyd has sets up its own offices in Morocco.
Hapag-Lloyd has set up three offices in Morocco with a headquarters in Casablanca and two satellite offices in both Tangier and Agadir.
“The Moroccan economy has grown steadily over the last years. Many Moroccan customers have already experienced Hapag-Lloyd´s services. With the opening of our new representation in the country, we strive to meet customers´ requirements for proximity and quality of service”, says Juan Pablo Richards, Senior Managing Director Region South Europe of Hapag-Lloyd.
Morocco is connected to the global Hapag-Lloyd network by the port of Tanger-Med, which is a strategically important port for the entire logistics industry. Last year, Hapag-Lloyd acquired a 10% stake in container terminal 3 (TC3) at the port of Tanger-Med 2.
The country is an important platform for the export of fresh produce, which is part of Hapag-Lloyd’s development strategy in the refrigerated container transport sector. Morocco exports also minerals, chemicals, textiles, and food products, especially to European countries. Imports consist mainly of electronics, spare parts, and food products.
