Leading shipping news service names Hapag-Lloyd “Containership Operator of the Year” / Jury recognizes IPO and role as a consolidator in a difficult market environment

Lloyd’s List, the most important news service in the shipping industry, has honored Hapag-Lloyd with its Global Award in the category of “Containership Operator of the Year.” The award was bestowed at a ceremony at the National Maritime Museum in London, which was attended by more than 450 representatives of the global shipping industry. In its assessment, the jury particularly praised the company for its IPO in the fall of 2015 and for the mergers with its competitors CSAV and UASC in a difficult market environment. For the jurors, these were bold steps and examples of successful cultural transformation in a globally active company.


Anthony Manning, Hapag-Lloyd Sales Director UK / Ireland, presenting this years Lloyd’s List Award.

“The award is a great honor for our company. In its long history, our company has already often proved itself to be an innovative and active shaper of the industry – and, at present, it’s also doing so as a consolidator. For this reason, we are optimistic that we will play a prominent role in our industry in the future, as well.”

Mr. Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd

The Lloyd’s List Global Awards are regarded as one of the most prestigious distinction in the maritime sector. Last year, Hapag-Lloyd already received the prize in the safety category.
