We plan each dangerous cargo transport under the direction of a dangerous goods officer to ensure the safety of our crews, your cargo, and the environment.
Reaching the destination safely
There are additional special safety regulations for transporting dangerous goods. Hamburg Süd therefore checks every transportation request for dangerous goods individually. Our regional teams of experts plan and follow every transportation under the direction of a dangerous goods officer, from acceptance of the order until the cargo reaches its destination. This way, you can rest assured, knowing your cargo couldn’t be in better hands.
The right equipment and expertise are crucial for ensuring the safety of our crews, your cargo, and the environment. That’s why an independent classification society regularly checks and confirms the suitability of our ships. On board, we have specially trained employees to ensure that the cargo is stowed and secured according to the regulations applying to the respective class of dangerous goods. You can rely on us. Hamburg Süd will ensure your dangerous goods arrive safely.

Cooperation for more safety
The safety standards at Hamburg Süd are among the highest in the world. Nevertheless, we always strive to improve, which is why we actively utilize the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS). This initiative collects and analyzes cargo-related incidents, identifies risks, and develops solutions. It’s one way that Hamburg Süd is working with other shippers to increase the safety of marine transportation long term.
You'll find more information on the CINS website.
