Maersk is a company that people admire, respect and most importantly, a company that stands for excellence and achievement across global logistics.
A.P. Moller and his father Captain Peter Maersk Moller founded the Maersk Group in 1904. The company has grown and evolved across the global shipping industry.
In 2013 the company described itself as the world's largest overseas cargo carrier and operated over 600 vessels with 3.8 million Twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) container capacity.
The size of a container ship is defined throughout the world in terms of TEU capacity. The Maersk Triple-E breaks the world record for container capacity, with a capacity of 18 000 TEU. The Triple-E is also reducing its environment-footprint, by reducing CO2 emission up to 50% per container moved.
