Hapag-Lloyd has announced the opening of its new office in Lagos, Nigeria. As one of the largest economies and one of the most populous countries in Africa, Nigeria plays a crucial role in the container liner’s growth strategy on the continent. Lagos is one of the most important port cities in Africa.
Nigeria is the economic powerhouse of West Africa. With large oil reserves and a growing middle class, the country imports everything from industrial machinery to electronic appliances. Nigeria’s main exports are cocoa beans, cashews, and other agricultural products.
“Hapag-Lloyd has been expanding its business steadily in West Africa over the past years”, said Dheeraj Bhatia, Senior Managing Director Region Middle East at Hapag-Lloyd. “Our new office in Lagos will create further growth for us and will help us to even better connect Nigeria to the world.”
In Lagos, Hapag-Lloyd calls at the ports Apapa and Tin Can Island. In order to serve its African customers all over the continent, Hapag-Lloyd opened a dedicated Quality Service Centre in Mauritius at the beginning of 2020.
