Management Systems

Quality, environment, and safety

An integrated management system at Hamburg Süd guarantees quality, environmental sustainability, and the safety of people, ships, and cargo. Since 1996, Hamburg Süd has also been certified according to the ISO 9001 quality standard. The International Safety Management (ISM) Code for safe ship operation was introduced in the same year. These elements were expanded in 2000 when our environmental management system was certified according to ISO 14001. Specific goals and regular training ensure that Hamburg Süd continues to develop in all three areas. We set our principles down in the safety, environmental, and quality policies of Hamburg Süd.
