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.
During their World Tour, the containers will be available to A.P. Moller Maersk employees during strategic points in its journey for them to sign. Already APM Terminals and Maersk employees in Los Angeles, have started this signage tradition.
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.”
