German-based transportation company Hapag-Lloyd recently celebrated the official opening of their new office in the Ghanaian city of Tema.

Tema is considered the most important port city in the West African country. Hapag-Lloyd will immediately manage all their West African operations from this new office.

Chief Operating Office for Hapag-Lloyd, Anthony Firmin said, “I’m very pleased that our enhanced presence in West Africa is showing initial signs of success,”

He went on to further explain, “Our West Africa Express (WAX) service from and to West Africa has been operating with extraordinary success for several years and is very well received by customers. With our new East Africa Service (EAS), connecting Saudi Arabia with Kenya and Tanzania, we have entered another new trade. As a result, we are tying Africa even more closely to our global network while benefiting at the same time from positive economic developments in large parts of Africa.”

Over the last two years, the GDP of West Africa has shown tremendous growth, rising by an average of 6 percent and Ghana is quickly becoming one the fastest-growing economies in Africa. This new expansion is just one of many Hapag-Lloyd has carried out over the last two years helping the company to establish a fast connection from West Africa to Europe with two services in operation.

Both services use the port city of Tema which will soon undergo a major overhaul as the port’s yearly handling capacity is to be tripled by mid-2019, from 1 million to 3 million TEU.

Hapag-Lloyd expects further avenues of growth from this capacity increase.
