Alliance between Maersk and MSC to terminate in January 2025

Dear Customer,

We are writing to inform you that following a thorough evaluation process, A. P. Moller – Maersk, the parent company of Hamburg Süd, and MSC have mutually agreed to discontinue the 2M alliance, set to end in January 2025.

We are dedicated to improving our customers’ logistical networks and accessibility. We believe we will more efficiently deliver on the evolving needs of customers, such as the importance of reliability, flexibility, and sustainability in all aspects of logistics. We will seek to minimise any disruptions to the 2M network leading up to termination in 2025.

MSC has been a valuable partner and we look forward to a continued strong collaboration throughout the remainder of the agreement period.

We understand that at this time, you may have more questions pertaining to what this change may mean for your supply chain. Our customer service and commercial teams are always available to support should you need assistance.

We thank you for your trust and loyalty. We believe this change will allow you greater connectivity, thereby easing supply chain issues. We look forward to continuing to assist you on all matters relating to your logistical needs.

Our teams are always by your side.

Kind regards,

Your Hamburg Süd Team
