The quality leader across the seas

Hapag-Lloyd AGNichtfinanzieller Bericht und Nachhaltigkeitsbericht

The leading company for transport logistics has its port in Hamburg. But its home is the world. With its rich tradition, the shipping company is standing its ground excellently in global competition. And its sustainability measures are setting new standards for a demanding industry.


Global trade is continuing to grow. With this growth, the transport industry is facing increasing pressure to focus on sustainability. Shipping companies, too, are obliged to make an active contribution to climate and environmental protection. To stand out in the market, quality counts above all. Quality is an important cornerstone of Hapag-Lloyd’s Strategy 2023, and the Hamburg-based company wants to showcase this in its sustainability report.


For Hapag-Lloyd, a company rich in tradition, the road to success is via quality leadership. In the sustainability report, various stakeholders such as customers, employees and the company’s partners talk about the measures the shipping company uses to ensure the highest quality. Their words paint a picture of a company whose entire organisation is geared towards ensuring high levels of quality. The sustainability report builds on the company’s previous reporting, acting as a progress report over time.


The company’s 239 ships deliver goods to customers in 129 different countries.
