Fusion could reduce Hamburg Sds fleet

07-12-2017 15:00:00


Hamburg Sd's fleet of approximately 100 owned and chartered ships could be reduced as a result of the requirements A.P. Mller - Mrsk has been imposed following the merger. According to Alphaliner, "at least 25 ships" will be affected.

The reason for reductions in Hamburg Sd's fleet is due to the withdrawal of a number of vessel sharing agreements (VSA), wich A.P. Mller has been ordered from different countries, in order to get the merger approved.

Maersk needed approval in 23 different jurisdictions, in connection with the merger. The last approval from South Korea landed on November 28th and thus triggered the completion of the deal of 3.7 Billion euro.

Maersk Line has not given any specific information about a possible reduction of the Hamburg Sd fleet, but they have written the following comment to Maritime Denmark in an email:

"Hamburg Sd will withdraw as operators of their own ships from the VSAs, which are subject to the regulatory decisions. We are in the midst of looking at the future structure of Hamburg Sd on these routes that could become projects in cooperation with Maersk Line or in some cases with other shipping companies, "Maersk Line said.
