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

Specific local information
Online booking – quick and easy

With our Web Booking tool for dangerous goods you can book your dangerous goods transport online. Simply enter or select the UN Number of the DG shipment and it will reveal all the necessary information.

  • the correct designation of the dangerous good
  • the IMO class
  • the packing group (if necessary).

Especially practical and efficient in terms of time: with your booking request you can also send us your preliminary dangerous goods declaration and, if applicable, other documents related to your dangerous goods. Thanks to our document upload function, it only takes a few clicks!

Your request is then reviewed, and once we have all necessary approvals you will receive your DG booking confirmation.
