In July 2020, two fully functional Maersk containers were skillfully painted with a rainbow to join Maersk’s fleet. On March 11, 2021, they will embark on their World Tour.
First part of the journey for the 40 and 20-foot rainbow containers will be aboard the Maersk Edmonton from APM Terminals Pier 400 in Los Angeles to Yokohama and stopping at several locations across Asia, Europe and finishing their tour in Denmark for Copenhagen Pride 2021.
The rainbow containers will have a few more stops where employees will get this opportunity to see and sign the units before their arrival in Copenhagen.
We are really excited that our rainbow containers have now started their way around the world. While the outside of these containers represent the company’s stand on diversity and inclusion, the inside of the containers will represent our Employees’ personal commitment.
An investment beyond a symbol
Maersk’s rainbow containers have served as a symbol of inclusion and diversity, boldly sharing with the world the company’s stand on creating a culture where all employees, partners, and customers feel welcomed and can be themselves without judgment.
They not only serve as a symbol for the company, but they have also been involved in important humanitarian work, including the delivery of relief cargo to hurricane survivors in the United States just this past year. Maersk’s clients are also showing interest in the use of these rainbow containers to move their goods around the world.
Spot the Containers and share on social media
Throughout their voyage, if you are lucky to see one of these rainbow containers, take a picture and share on social media platforms like Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook using the #InclusionAllTheWay. It will sure be a sight you will never forget!
