Hapag-Lloyd has signed an agreement under which it acquired 100 per cent of the share capital of UK-based ATL Haulage Contractors Ltd (ATL).
ATL, a private firm founded in 2008, reportedly has a fleet of 120 contemporary trucks owned by the company and a network of over 100 more trucks provided by committed subcontractors.
The whole owned truck fleet has an average age of less than two years and a minimum emissions requirement of Euro 6. Furthermore, the corporation has approximately 250 skeleton, sliding, genset, and multi-function trailers.
According to Hapag-Lloyd, ATL will remain a separate company and brand, with the existing management team continuing to serve all clients in accordance with existing contractual commitments.
