Hapag-Lloyd has opened its own offices in Morocco as part of its growth ambitions in the most attractive markets of North Africa.
Morocco is an important platform for the export of fresh produce and is part of Hapag-Lloyd’s development strategy in the refrigerated container transport sector.
Juan Pablo Richards, senior managing director region south Europe of Hapag-Lloyd, said: “The Moroccan economy 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.”
Morocco’s exports also consist of minerals, chemicals, textiles, and food products, especially to European countries.
The country’s imports consist mainly of electronics, spare parts, and food products.
Through Tanger Med, a strategically important port for the logistics industry, Morocco is perfectly connected to the global Hapag-Lloyd network.
Last year, Hapag-Lloyd acquired a 10% stake in container terminal 3 (TC3) at the Port of Tanger-Med 2.
Hapag-Llotd’s presence in Morocco is achieved through three offices with the headquarter being Casablanca and two satellite offices in both Tangier and Agadir.
