Costa Container to Become Hamburg Süd

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

With effect from 1 January 2009, the Hamburg Süd shipping group is replacing its Costa Container Lines (CCL) brand with the Hamburg Süd name in order to present itself worldwide under a unified brand.

Hamburg Süd took over the liner operations of the long-established Italian shipping company on 1 December 2007. CCL is recognised as a specialist in the trades between the Western Mediterranean and South America East and North Coast, as well as between South America East Coast and Mexico/Caribbean. These operations are complemented by an extensive network of feeder services in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Caribbean.

Through brand consolidation Hamburg Süd is seeking to harmonise all its operations, exploit synergies and, as a result, achieve added value for its customers. Therefore the change of name will be accomplished with the assurance of absolute continuity. Customers will be dealing with the same contacts and can reach them at the same postal and email addresses, telephone and fax numbers.
