Hamburg Südamerikanische Dampfschifffahrts- Gesellschaft A/S & Co KG
No matter what!Hamburg Süd – passionate experts in reefer transports
Hamburg Süd ranks among the ten largest container shipping brands worldwide and is a commercially independent member of the Maersk Group. Hamburg Süd is among the market leaders in the North–South trades, and serves all significant East–West trade lanes.
Each and every one of our approximately 5,000 employees is an expert in their field. We listen to our customers, know how important a well-functioning transport chain is for them, and feel personally responsible for it – especially when it comes to reefer container transports, an area in which Hamburg Süd and its Aliança subsidiary are some of the leading providers. Whether fruit, meat, fish, vegetables, dairy or other perishable products – temperature-sensitive cargo is in good hands with us. Our Global Reefer Competence Team experts provide our customers with in-person and customized advice around the world.
With over 100 years of experience in reefer transports, it goes without saying that we always offer our customers innovative solutions utilizing state-of-the-art technology, such as Controlled Atmosphere (CA) and Remote Container Management (RCM). In fact, Hamburg Süd offers access to the largest reefer and CA container pool in the world. CA is an effective and sustainable means of safeguarding and preserving the quality of fresh fruit and vegetables by creating an atmosphere inside the container that perfectly meets the requirements of the particular product under transport. In addition to ensuring that the sensitive cargo reaches its destination just as fresh and flavorful as it would by plane, carriage by ship also generates just a fraction of the climate-harming gases produced by air transport per ton moved.
Furthermore, all reefer containers in our equipment pool are fitted with devices for Remote Container Management (RCM). This brings unrivalled transparency to the shipping of perishable products as it enables live monitoring of the reefer container around the clock. While offering real-time GPS tracking, RCM also monitors and records the power status of the refrigeration unit. On top of that, sensors gather real-time data on a range of factors – including temperature, relative humidity, O2 and CO2 levels in the container atmosphere – to know exactly what is happening inside the box. With this data, we help our customers make their supply chain more efficient than ever.
Simply put, customers who choose Hamburg Süd reefers benefit from cutting-edge technology, the cargo expertise of our passionate workforce, and the personal touch in container shipping.
