Containers protect your goods. But what protects the containers? Damaged or soiled containers cost time, money and patience. Time – because the cause of the damage has to be investigated. Money – because the container needs to be cleaned and repaired. And patience – because all this can lead to delayed transports. But with Container Protect, you can safeguard yourself against unforeseen costs as it covers containers in the event of a damage claim – and we take care of the settlement in the process. This means more time and fewer worries for you. And more service from us.
One of the scarcest goods in logistics is time. That’s why we offer air freight as an additional solution to help you meet tight deadlines or avoid production downtimes. You can react flexibly with the right combination of different modes of transportation – whether by air, sea or land. This allows you to avoid storage congestion and the high costs involved with that. With our global reach and experts wherever you are located, we are there for you – to advise you on all aspects related to air freight. By using our own planes and drawing on cooperations with other international partners, we are able to make sure that your cargo takes off safely and is tracked in real time. But, most importantly, it will arrive securely where no other means of transport would be able to take it.
Temperature-sensitive goods require an unbroken cold chain in order to be able to guarantee product quality. Captain Peter™, our virtual reefer assistant, allows you to monitor all the important parameters inside your reefer container – around the clock and across the globe. In this way, we ensure that there aren’t any surprises when the container is opened upon arrival.
The journey of your goods neither starts nor ends at seaports. That’s why we transport your cargo not only from port to port, but also from door to door. With our reliable partners across the world, we find the right solution for you to ensur e that your container reaches its destination safely and on time – whether by train, barge or truck. We fine-tune our integrated end-to-end solutions to your cargo and business processes – for dry cargo, refrigerated cargo or break bulk.
Refrigerated cargos are particularly valuable and sensitive. This can make reefer logistics extremely complex. But it doesn’t have to be. With our Cold Chain Solutions, built on our comprehensive ocean and logistics offerings, we bring simplicity and predictability to the transport of your perishables, while also reducing risk and administrative workloads on your business. Our expert local teams will assess your supply chain from end to end and enable you to further improve and streamline your logistics network to best support your core business.
Customs regulations vary from country to country – and they change every now and again. Our global team of local experts knows the latest regulations and handles customs clearance for you in the country of origin and destination. Whether for import, export or in-transit declarations, we ensure that your goods reach their destination without delays.
By acting sustainably, we are taking responsibility for present and future generations. As part of these efforts, reducing CO₂ emissions is one of the most effective measures for countering climate change and its consequences. By opting for ECO Delivery , you can now very easily make an active contribution – while also helping your company to achieve its sustainability goals. No matter how small, every contribution counts!

To ensure that your cargo reaches its destination safely and on time, it takes more than just the voyage across the ocean. Did you know that Hamburg Süd also provides you with many other services in addition to maritime transport? We offer you:
The Reefer Guide has been specially designed to provide you with a comprehensive guide to every aspect of temperature-controlled transportation. It is an invaluable source of information on such vital topics as recommended temperatures, ideal stowage patterns and optimum product handling prior to shipment.
Track & Trace Reporting is a new online function on the Hamburg Süd website that allows you to quickly and easily generate individual reports according to various criteria and at any time. Track & Trace Reporting offers you many benefits.
The transportation of temperature-controlled pharmaceuticals requires special care. In order to ensure the quality and integrity of pharmaceuticals along the entire supply chain, Hamburg Süd offers a variety of services to its customers.
Ventilation is often confused with air circulation. But while ventilation means exchange of ambient air into the container via vents, circulation is the airflow within the container and through and/or around the cargo. Did you know that too much fresh air can actually harm fresh produce, like pumpkins, onions and seed potatoes during transportation?
We think outside the box – Break Bulk and Special Cargo
Hamburg Süd not only transports cargo inside containers – it also has long-standing experience when it comes to Special Cargo and Break Bulk shipments. Large engine parts, transformers, trucks, entire subway trains or yachts – Hamburg Süd transports any type of cargo, whether it fits into a container or not.
