Our philosophy

Mr A.P. Møller Maersk Line is a division of the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group, with which we share the same values and business principles - to be a world-class group, known and highly respected. An attractive business partner and employer, and a good corporate citizen.

When our founder Mr A.P. Møller wrote "No loss should hit us, which could be avoided with constant care", he summarised in a few words one of the central themes of Maersk Line's business philosophy.

Living with the seas and respecting nature is ingrained in our culture and matches our quest for constant care. This concept has a wide and deep meaning at Maersk Line. "Constant care" implies a strong dedication to promote the health and safety of our employees and others in the industry and in the world around us.
