Hamburg Sud goes even more digital
Hamburg Sud, an affiliate of Maersk, has expanded its e-commerce offerings. "Instant" is a digital application that offers certain advantages when booking containers. Bookings can be made up to four weeks prior to the planned shipment.
The earlier the booking is made, the lower the total price for the customer – and subsequent price changes or additional fees will no longer apply. At the same time, Hamburg Sud will guarantee to customers who book cargo via "Instant" that there will be sufficient space for their cargo on the selected connection.
So far, the application is available for Hamburg Sud services between South America East Coast and Europe or Asia as well as between Asia and Oceania, and it will gradually be extended to more trades. (fd)
