The German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd is taking over the British logistics company ATL Haulage Contractors. The company is thus strengthening its landside portfolio.

The Hamburg-based liner shipping company is thus following the example of its French competitor CMA CGM. The shipping company led by Rodolphe Saadé had just announced the takeover of Wincanton[ds_preview].

The Hamburg-based company is taking over a fleet of 120 trucks with an average age of less than two years and a network of over 100 additional trucks from subcontractors for an undisclosed purchase price. “The acquisition of ATL enables us to offer our customers a first-class multimodal service,” says Hapag-Lloyd.

ATL was founded in 2008 as a private company, will continue to operate under its current name and will continue to act independently in the future. According to the information provided, the management team will also remain on board. The road haulage company based in London Gateway and Southampton serves all major ports in the UK.

It was only recently announced that Hapag-Lloyd will join forces with Maersk on all important East-West routes from February 2025. In the “Gemini Cooperation”, the two heavyweights in liner shipping are combining parts of their fleets and services, but intend to serve other trade lanes and business segments independently of each other.
