Hapag-Lloyd has added to its West African network with the opening of an office in Dakar, Senegal.

The office provides better access to the West African market, said Hapag-Lloyd. The team in Dakar will be made up of 15 shipping experts and will be led by Fahd Caunhye, country manager Senegal.

From Dakar, Hapag-Lloyd connects the country via its Dakar Express Service (DEX) with the main ports of Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
