Transportation is vital to the world’s economy. Practically everything we hold in our hands was grown or manufactured in one location, packaged and distributed to another, and procured, delivered and consumed in yet another.
Over 80 percent of the world’s goods are transported by sea, and Maersk is one of the largest players in the container shipping market. This means that at any one time, there may be hundreds of transport-related vacancies within our group.
If you like the idea of an international working life that revolves around the oceans, and keeps you in touch with people all over the world, then a career within one of Maersk Group’s four companies operating in transport might be just right for you.
The Maersk Group includes the biggest container shipping line in the world.
Maersk Group runs four major transportation companies, of which Maersk Line is its biggest. Maersk Line is also the biggest container shipping company in the world – connecting major ports on all continents.
