More than six months ago, we informed you that Hamburg Süd was to be sold to Maersk Line – and ever since then, the preparations for the transfer have been in full swing. However, the sale is only valid and complete when all the relevant regulatory authorities worldwide have given their approval, which is expected within the fourth quarter of 2017.
As always, you will receive important information regarding the sale in a timely manner, but before then we would like to emphasize today that the structure and characteristic business model of Hamburg Süd will remain in place in the future. Hamburg Süd stands for quality, personal contact through its over 250 offices worldwide, and excellent customer service. And as part of the world’s largest shipping group, Hamburg Süd will be able to offer an even broader network and more comprehensive service, which you will also benefit from in the future. Back in April, our East–West services were switched to the 2M setup, thus significantly increasing port coverage and the number of weekly port calls in these regions.
