Maersk Line has completed the acquisition of the German container shipping line Hamburg from the Oetker Group for €3.7bn (4.39bn).

The deal had originally been agreed in April, and has now received all regulatory approvals.

The acquisition is expected to generate annual operational synergies of around $350-400mn from 2019.

The savings are expected to be primarily derived from integrating and optimising the vessel networks as well as utilising the terminal capacity in APM Terminals.
