Since its formation in 1871, Hamburg Süd has evolved from a conventional shipping company into a globally operating transport logistics organisation. Today, it ranks among the world's 10 largest container shipping lines and is one of the leading providers in the North-South trades.
As a member of the successful Oetker Group, one of the largest and best-known family enterprises in Germany, Hamburg Süd also enjoys a reputation beyond the shipping sector as a competent and reliable partner for individual all-round solutions tailored to customer needs. They encompass the entire logistics chain, from planning to implementation, reaching not just from port to port but also from door to door.
As a future-driven company with a 140-year tradition, we see sustainable conduct as an indispensable part of our entrepreneurial activity. In pursuing this goal, Hamburg Süd relies on a business development that adopts a comprehensive view of the three key areas ecology, society and economics. We understand sustainability as seeking to reconcile economic efficiency, environmental protection and social responsibility based on stable economic development. Our Sustainability Report (see our website) informs about our material sustainability topics.
