The benchmark corporate film, We Are Maersk, shows our production concept at its best. Though Maersk’s hardware is impressive, it’s their people who really make the difference. We chose to let Maersk’s employees tell their own stories concerning their challenges, illustrating the complexities of running a big corporation.

The film has been adapted for local audiences in 23 countries – with six more to come in countries ranging from Colombia to Bangladesh. It has been translated into ten languages and has reached an audience of nearly 500 million people in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
