HAMBURG : Global shipping markets, which are due to add more capacity than anticipated demand will support, have a good chance of rebalancing within two years, said the Chief Executive of Germany’s  Hapag-Lloyd to the reporters on Thursday.

“The gap between supply growth and demand growth is possibly smaller than people think and therefore, the outlook that the market may recover to a more balanced situation in one or two years is better than most people feel,” said Hapag-Lloyd CEO Mr. Rolf Habben Jansen.

The company, the world’s number five in container shipping, earlier this month said it will cut some services to save costs and stem falling profits as freight rates dived.
