In August 2023, SAAM completed the sale of its shares of SAAM Ports S.A., a port services subsidiary, and SAAM Logistics S.A., a company that provides trucking and warehouse services at bonded warehouses, as well as certain associated real estate, to the shipping company Hapag-Lloyd, a company partially owned by Quiñenco through its subsidiary Compañía Sud Americana de Vapores (CSAV).
SAAM was a subsidiary of CSAV until February 2012, at which time SM SAAM, which owns 99.99% of SAAM's shares, was created as a spin-off. SM SAAM's shares began trading on March 1, 2012, in the Chilean stock market.
