The German international shipping company Hapag-Lloyd has announced the opening of its company’s Ukrainian office in Odessa.


According to the company’s press service, among the advantages of Ukraine there are: strategic geographical position, attractiveness of the export market for mineral resources and agricultural production.

Ukraine is an important importer of electronics, equipment and consumer goods, as well as the location of operations for some of the world’s largest multinational companies, which opens up great opportunities for sea carriers such as Hapag-Lloyd.
