HPG is a transportation company headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, with a history of 165 years. As one of the world’s top five shipping owners, HPG now boasts more than 160 container carriers with 125 shipping lines and with a loading capacity of about 950,000TEU. Committed to worldwide container business, HPG has 400 affiliates around 121 countries. In 2016, HPG announced to merge with UASC, after which the new HPG would own 227 container vessels with a load of approximately 1,500,000TEU.

As one of both the global top 30 overseas logistics enterprises and the top 10 Chinese private international forwarding clients, WWL has achieved high-speed growth during the past decade, with its total international forwarding load exceeding 400,000TEU last year.

WWL has been engaged in cooperation with both HPG and UASC, which is going to be acquired by the former. Besides, the forwarder has conducted firm cooperation with North America, Middle East, Europe and Latin America in forwarding business. As WWL intends to become a global freight forwarder, it has expanded cooperation with HPG from China to the Southeast Asia, India and Pakistan, Australia, Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe as well as Western and Northern Europe.

Since April 1, 2017, WWL has officially become an important client of HPG in China, thus making the two now strategic cooperation partners rather than close cooperation partners. The talks between the heads of HPG and WWL has further strengthened understandings and trust between the two companies, and enhanced the confidence for the strategic cooperation between the two sides, thus laying a solid foundation for the profound cooperation between them.
