Maersk Line has been named Container Operator of the Year at the annual Lloyd’s List Asia Awards in Singapore.
The judges selected Maersk for its continuous network advancements, market leading digital solutions and trade finance.
”It is the recognition of the continued support we have seen from our customers and peers during a challenging time for Maersk Line,” said Rupesh Jain, Maersk Line’s South East Asia managing director. “It is also great to take this back to our employees who really deserve this award.”
Maersk Line has introduced several improvements to its services and product offerings over 2017. The shipping line added another service on its Asia-North Europe trade route, while new services have been established between Asia and the US East Coast, along with Asia and West Africa.
Maersk has also invested in remote container management (RCM) and blockchain technologies, becoming the first shipping company to offer reefer customers real time data about the state of their cargo, including location, temperature, humidity and other conditions.
“Maersk Line’s commitment to market leadership goes beyond the number of vessels in our fleet,” Jain added. “Our highest priority is being the customer’s preferred container operator so we work hard to develop a network and provide services that resonates with our customers.”
