Our Values – our internal compass

At Hapag-Lloyd, “We care. We move. We deliver.”. These are our corporate values, and they are at the heart of everything we do. Our values tell a story of where we are coming from, define who we are, and guide us on our way forward. They steer the way we do business, inspire us, motivate us and, like an internal compass, help us find the right way – together.

Each of these values, “We care. We move. We deliver.”, builds on each other. None is more important than the other, and only by living each value can we bring them all to life. But there is a lot more to our values than just six short words. For a fuller picture of what they mean to us, watch the video below.

Our values are not just connected to our behaviour and business, but also to our vision and mission. We set sail on our voyage to becoming “number one for quality” in 2018. We have a clear strategy that will help us get there, and our values are a guiding force that will enable us to implement this strategy in a lasting way.

At Hapag-Lloyd, we are “connecting the world across oceans”. This is our goal, and we believe that this is exactly what we have been doing all along – for more than 175 years. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, we connected people by transporting millions of emigrants to their new homelands. Today, we connect businesses, markets and economies. We facilitate global trade, boost the prosperity of countries and companies, and provide new possibilities wherever we operate.

Our greatest asset on this voyage are our roughly 14,500 employees around the globe. And what connects each of us are our common culture and values: “We care. We move. We deliver.”
