Hapag-Lloyd Hamburg Express

Hapag-Lloyd is at present the world’s sixth-largest container line.

Founded in 1970 via a merger between the two shipping companies Hamburg-Amerikanische Packetfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft (Hapag / Hamburg-American Line) and North German Lloyd (NDL), Hapag-Lloyd is based in Hamburg, Germany, and has a presence in 114 countries, with 7,000 employees worldwide.

Hapag-Lloyd in 2014 merged with Chile's CSAV and in 2016 approved a merger with United Arab Shipping Company.
