Hamburg Süd Group

Core competencies

The Hamburg Süd Group combines an array of one-source services to create the perfect logistics chain. In container shipping it is represented by three brands: Hamburg Süd as a German carrier, the Chilean shipping company CCNI and Aliança as a Brazilian shipping company operating vessels under the Brazilian flag. In addition, it is a presence on the world's oceans in bulk and product tanker shipping under the names Rudolf A. Oetker (RAO) and Aliança Bulk (Aliabulk).

Yet one more link in the chain is Columbus Shipmanagement GmbH (CSG), whose complex area of responsibility ranges from technical management and crewing to materials handling. Completing the shipping group's service spectrum is the Hamburg Süd Travel Agency, which, in over three decades, has developed into a specialised service provider for business travel, cruises, events and much more.
