Supply Chain Day 2018: Hapag-Lloyd to Host ‘Open House’ in Ballin


This year, Hapag-Lloyd will be participating in Supply Chain Day with an extensive program at the Ballin House in Hamburg. During the day, visitors will have an opportunity to attend a range of events in the company’s headquarters building, which houses roughly 900 employees of the world’s fifth-largest liner shipping company.

Presentations will give guests an overview of the history of Hapag-Lloyd, apart from insights into the challenges that the container shipping industry is facing today. In the evening of Supply Chain Day, Hapag-Lloyd Captain Peter Rößler will host a launch party for his new book “Luv und Lee in schwerer See” (“Windward and Leeward in Rough Seas”).

Rößler is currently captain of the “Valparaíso Express,” a 10,500 TEU container ship commissioned by Hapag-Lloyd at the end of 2016. He will describe his various adventures on board both cargo and cruise ships during his reading, and then take questions from the audience.

“Once a year, hundreds of logistics companies throughout Europe allow people to get a behind-the-scenes look at the diverse array of logistical tasks and related career opportunities. In 2017, approximately 40,000 people attended some 400 events in 20 countries,” the company said.
