Sealand – A Maersk Company is a regional shipping line, powered by Maersk. As the world’s largest shipping company, the Maersk Group covers ports in almost every country in the world, making around 33,000 port calls a year.
We work with the passion and flexibility of a local brand. But with Maersk at our backs, we also ensure you enjoy the benefits of industry-leading logistics expertise, cutting-edge technology and global reach.
Where we come from
Our story began with a revolutionary act in 1956. Malcom McLean – a trucking entrepreneur – decided to pack his cargo in standardised compartments, and containerisation was born.
Four years later, Malcom MacLean founded Sea Land Service, Inc. People connected with us immediately. We were the first shipping company in the industry to carefully consider their business needs – and we put them on the leading edge of innovation.
We became part of the A.P. Moller Maersk Group in 1999, giving our customers access to the world’s largest shipping network. Then in 2018, we were honoured to join forces with MCC Transport and Seago Line, two passionate regional brands that pride themselves on being close to their customers.
Today, we connect companies in the Americas, Asia, Europe, North Africa & the Middle East with their key markets. Wherever we work, we combine passionate local teams with an unrivalled global network to move cargo quickly and efficiently.
What we do
We're three regional organisations covering North, Central and South America, far east Asia, Europe, North Africa and the Black Sea area, powered by Maersk - the world's leading shipping company.
We exist to make shipping simpler and more efficient. We pair logistics needs with our knowhow and digital tools to put our customers in control every step of the way. Simple and with a local flavour.
We’re privileged to be part of the larger Maersk business. We give our customers global reach, scale and stability – while still being their regional partner, just around the corner.
Our fast, proactive teams ensure prompt support when needed. We work closely with our customers to help optimise their logistics today, and understand their business needs of tomorrow. We are their neighbour, we speak their language and we know their market.
