Germany-based Hapag-Lloyd, a leader in the global container shipping and logistics industry, has opened a new office in Odessa, Ukraine, which will employ more than 20 staff.

Ukraine is an attractive export market for the company due to its various mineral resources and large agricultural production sector. The country is also an important import country for the electronics, machinery and consumer goods sectors.

Senior managing director for south Europe, Juan Pablo Richards, said: “The economic growth of the country is convincing, and many Ukrainian customers already rely on the services of Hapag-Lloyd. With the opening of our new office in the country, we pay tribute to the excellent business development and the enormous chances we see in this market.”
