In May 2016, Hamburg Süd publishes its Sustainability Report as the world’s first container shipping line in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Standard Disclosures (Core). Entitled “Setting standards and acting sustainably”, the 84-page report sets out the key topics in the areas of environmental, social and economic responsibility for the 2014 and 2015 reporting period.
Hamburg Süd not only transports cargo inside containers – it also has long-standing experience when it comes to Special Cargo and Break Bulk shipments. Large engine parts, transformers, trucks, entire subway trains or yachts – Hamburg Süd transports any type of cargo, whether it fits into a container or not.
The Reefer Guide has been specially designed to provide you with a comprehensive guide to every aspect of temperature-controlled transportation. It is an invaluable source of information on such vital topics as recommended temperatures, ideal stowage patterns and optimum product handling prior to shipment.
At Hamburg Süd we operate our own full service offices in Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. The Reefer Teams at our local offices are all trained in Cold Chain Logistics, and also include dedicated citrus specialists.
