Ocean Transport

As part of Maersk – the world’s largest container shipping company – we offer you reliable ocean transports with a global network, frequent departures and personal customer service in more than 100 countries.

More than 150 years of experience in ocean shipping

Our roots lie in maritime transport: since Hamburg Süd was founded in 1871 – long before containerisation – we have been transporting goods of all kinds by ship across the oceans. As part of Maersk, we are now able to offer stand-alone services on many trades independently of partners – and thus focus entirely on the needs of our customers. We take particular pride in our commitment to sustainable shipping. To achieve our net-zero greenhouse gas emissions target for 2040, for example, we are converting the shipping fleet step by step to adopt sustainable propulsion systems that use green fuels.

Sustainability at Hamburg Süd

Acting sustainably is of central importance to Hamburg Süd – in the interests of the environment, society, and our employees.
