Your promise. Delivered.

Maersk Line has been known for reliable, flexible and eco-efficient transportation and logistics services since 1928. Today, we provide end-to-end transportation to every corner of the globe, both by sea and by land.

Our 33,000 employees are dedicated to helping our customers optimise supply chains and realise business ambitions. Whether we serve you from one of our 630 vessels or 306 offices in 114 countries, we ensure that your promise is delivered.

We are committed to being the leader in sustainable shipping. We already offer the lowest CO2 shipping in the industry. Our goal now is to reduce CO2 emissions from our ocean shipping by 60 percent by 2020. We are already over halfway there, and are always looking for new ways to improve efficiency and environmental performance.

Part of A.P. Møller-Mærsk A/S


We are part of A.P. Møller-Mærsk A/S. Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, A.P. Møller-Mærsk A/S employs more than 88,000 people in over 130 countries. It delivered revenue of USD 40.3 billion in 2015.

In September 2016, it was announced that A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S will be reorganised into two separate divisions; Transport & Logistics – which Maersk Line is part of – and Energy. The change in strategy has brought with it a change in leadership at the top of the company. 

Follow us on social media

We have many customers and work with many different stakeholders, including industry groups, current and future employees, and people who are simply interested in what we do. We connect with these people in many ways, to better understand what they do and what drives them, and to give them a better idea of the work we do.

One way we connect is through social media. If you would like to know more about us – or would like to tell us something about you – connect with us through one of our social media channels.
