Germany-based container carrier, Hapag-Lloyd, has opened a new office in Romania.
Strategically situated, Romania offers Hapag-Lloyd direct access to Central, Eastern and Northwestern European countries via the Danube-Black Sea Canal.
With the port of Constanta, it will also provide an important hub port for container traffic in the Black Sea region.
Located in Bucharest, Senior Managing Director Region South Europe, Juan Pablo Richards, said the new office will allow Hapag-Lloyd to take advantage of the region’s growth opportunities.
“Romania is an attractive growth market with an important port and good hinterland connection via road and rail,” he said.
“This new office in the capital Bucharest aligns with our strategy to grow in key markets.
“We are very pleased to open an own office in this strategically significant location, which will allow us to serve our customers even better in the Black Sea area and beyond.”
According to Hapag-Lloyd, Romania has reached one of the highest growth rates of all EU members in recent years and has garnered sizeable investments from multinational corporations and other EU countries alike.
