Hapag-Lloyd and UASC complete merger


Dear Hapag-Lloyd and UASC Customers,

Today, we are proud to announce that Hapag-Lloyd and United Arab Shipping Company have completed the merger to become one combined company. This is a major milestone in the history of both companies as we continue to evolve to meet customer needs and adapt to market conditions.

In the “new” Hapag-Lloyd, one of the top 5 global carriers, we will be ready to deliver a number of important added benefits to you, including an extensive global network – now with added focus in the Middle East – making us capable of serving you even better, globally and locally. The combined company also boasts a larger, more efficient, and environmentally friendly fleet of vessels, allowing us to deploy the most effective vessel class in each of the trade lanes. Well-trained and experienced teams will be available to handle your cargo in an office near you, now with even deeper insights into your business. A financially solid business partner backed by a strong group of diversified shareholders will ensure your cargo is in safe hands at all times.

For the immediate future, the two companies will continue to operate independently as we work to integrate our internal systems and processes as quickly as possible. We therefore kindly ask you to continue working with your current Hapag-Lloyd/UASC counterparts in Sales, Customer Service, Operations and Finance. We will transfer the first UASC services to Hapag-Lloyd from mid July followed by the remaining services gradually over several weeks. Bookings for these services in Hapag-Lloyd’s systems will commence well in advance.

Over the course of the next few days, your Hapag-Lloyd or UASC account representative will contact you to explain what this will mean for your business and what you can expect in the coming weeks. Ensuring a smooth transition for you is our top priority. With two large, successful mergers in recent years, we have an industry-leading track record for conducting integrations rapidly and efficiently – and are confident of achieving this goal again. Your feedback is important to help us safeguard a continued successful relationship now and in the future.

We will provide regular updates about the progress of the integration of both companies through a weekly transition newsletter, which will also be published on www.hapag-lloyd.com and www.uasc.net. Should you have any immediate enquiries, please feel free to send us an e-mail at better.united@hlag.com.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty during the integration period and we look forward to serving you even better!

赫伯罗特在发布的《致赫伯罗特及阿拉伯轮船客户》中,表示,新的赫伯罗特是全球前五大班轮运营商之一,将以更大、更高效、更环保的船只,为客户提供全球范围内的一系列重要服务。


但是值得注意的是,由于两家公司的内部系统及流程的整合无法在短期内完成,因此,短期内双方将继续保持独立运作。预计今年7月,阿拉伯轮船的第一个服务将转移至赫伯罗特,而其他的服务将在之后的几周内陆续转移。


据了解,赫伯罗特于2016年6月29日官方证实赫伯罗特将与阿拉伯轮船合并,至今正式合并接近一年时间。新赫伯罗特全球排名第5,船队规模为226艘,合计运力为154.3万TEU,占全球总运力的7.4%。


尽管赫伯罗特此次整合阿拉伯轮船的举动并没有提升其在全球班轮运力中的排名,但是进一步缩小了赫伯罗特与排名第四位的中远海运(占全球总运力的8.3%)之间的差距。同时,通过整合阿拉伯轮船的集装箱运输资源,进一步巩固了其在北欧至北美贸易航线上的市场地位,且可实现协同效应,降低运营成本。这一切或许可以帮助新赫伯罗特实现新的跨越!



再见!UASC!
