Maersk is making noise in New Zealand
The container shipping company Hamburg Süd, which is part of Maersk, is not very popular in New Zealands port city Port Chalmers. This is due to the fact that the company has chosen to make stops at the port in ships that are prt of Hamburg Süd’s Rio-class, which have a larger capacity than Maersk Line’s L-class ships which were previously used for the purpose.
The problem is not only that Hamburg Süd’s Rio-class has a larger capacity, but that they are equipped with bigger and more noisy generators that are causing the city’s angry citizens to make constant complaints to the port because they cant sleep at night due to the noise.
