Maersk Line's planned acquisition of Hamburg Süd will give the two container carriers a market share of more than 40 percent in the combined transport of refrigerated containers, reefers, which carry especially food and perishables out of Brazil, stretching across almost the entire South American east coast.

This is the assessment from shipping analyst Leandro Carelli Barreto of Solve Shipping in São Paulo, speaking to ShippingWatch on the basis of numbers from Brazilian analyst institute Datamar, among others.
