Exhibitor profile

Hamburg Südamerikanische Dampfschifffahrts-Gesellschaft KG

Since its formation in 1871, the Hamburg Süd has evolved into a quality provider of worldwide ocean transport and individual logistics solutions from one source. The name "Hamburg Süd" is associated with a sum of such positive attributes as first-class service, high technical standards, unified expertise across all the trades served, punctuality and an efficient cost structure. 

Hamburg Süd´s position among the 15 largest container lines - is attributable first and foremost to the extension of its range of services, as well as its focus on reliability, efficiency, and sustainability

The company employs a total of approximately 4,500 employees in 300 offices worldwide (100 offices owned of them). It operates approximately 160 ships and deploys some 458,000 state-of-the-art containers. Hamburg Süd is DIN/ISO 14001 and 9001-2000 certified and is part of the successful Oetker Group, one of the largest family businesses in Germany.

With long experience in the transport of perishable cargo, Hamburg Süd belongs to the top five reefer container carriers worldwide and the largest container carrier in the South American markets. Together with the renowned Aliança brand as a Brazilian flag carrier, the Hamburg Süd Group stands for the highest schedule reliability and the shortest transit times.

Stay cool! We care!

The Hamburg Süd Group has consistently pioneered new technologies in order to guarantee transport ideally suited to any particular cargo. For perishable products, proper temperature control is of the utmost importance. Our sales staff supports our customers and assists them in dealing with questions of the required temperature, air exchange, humidity levels, or proper stuffing and loading. Hamburg Süd reefer technicians on board our vessels take care of the rest and ensure that temperature-controlled cargo arrives in perfect condition.

With a broad range of 20-foot and 40-foot containers, the Hamburg Süd Group offers the right transport solution for every kind of perishable commodity. Our container pool features reefer containers that are regulated by their own integrated refrigeration units to a range of between 30 C and -30°C, as well as Primeline/Magnum+ containers, capable of maintaining temperatures as low as -35°C.

Hamburg Süd is also one of the leading container carriers when it comes to “Modified Atmosphere” (MA) and “Controlled Atmosphere” (CA) which have become effective means of securing and preserving the quality of fresh fruit and vegetables.

MA and CA can help to ensure a higher quality and better flavour for the consumer, and a reduction in freight costs by converting air freight into ocean freight. Furthermore these technologies are a significant gain for the environment, because carriage by ship causes just a fraction of the climate-malign gases produced by air transport per tonne moved.
