Kühne Logistics University (KLU) thanks to the support of Hapag-Lloyd founded the Hapag-Lloyd Center for Shipping and Global Logistics (CSGL) in 2018. The purpose of the Center is to combine rigorous academic research with practical experiences and insights in the area of shipping and container transport, to increase the competiveness of the sector and contribute to the development of Hamburg as an international maritime knowledge hub.
The CSGL research team will pursue the advancement of shipping and maritime transportation topics in areas such as digitalisation, sustainability and the creation of value. The Center is an integral part of the KLU and capitalises on the expertise and competences of KLU professors and researchers. Additional expertise is provided by the Center associated members.
