Customer Advisory - Notification of Legal Name Change

Dear Valued Customer,

Developing and providing tailor-made solutions for your logistical needs – this is our passion and the core of our business for 150 years. In the years ahead, the Hamburg Süd brand as your trusted carrier, will continue to be by your side personally on a local level, always offering exceptional expertise for your cargo. What’s more, being part of the Maersk family opens many new possibilities for your business when it comes to digital innovations and additional products on top of pure container transportation.

To be able to offer you the best possible services and seamless processes going forward, we are simplifying our legal structure. Important for you: This will not have any impact on your operative business with us. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that, from 1 November 2021, the legal carrier will change from Hamburg-Südamerikanische Dampfschifffahrts Gesellschaft A/S & Co KG to:

Hamburg Süd A/S

Esplanaden 50

DK 1263 Copenhagen K,


VAT number DK53139655

Hamburg Süd A/S is a secondary name of Maersk A/S (registration number 32345794).

With this change, all contracts currently filed with the FMC under HAMBURG SÜDAMERIKANISCHE DAMPFSCHIFFFAHRTS-GESELLSCHAFT A/S & Co KG will be honored by Hamburg Süd A/S, a secondary name of Maersk A/S under the existing terms. Hamburg Süd A/S will continue to handle all necessary filings with the FMC.

If you require more information, please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions you may have.

With kind regards,

Hamburg Süd
