German container shipping line Hapag-Lloyd on Thursday reported a nearly 10-fold increase in first half net profit, citing surging freight rates amid scarce transport capacities. The group, the world's number five in the industry, said net profit climbed to 2.7 billion euros ($3.28 billion) from 285 million euros a year earlier. It said it did not expect any normalisation in global supply chains which have seen severe infrastructure bottlenecks due to the coronavirus crisis.
