MacGregor and Maersk have agreed to cooperate on the development of the next generation of container securing systems.
Provider of cargo and load handling solutions MacGregor, part of Cargotec, and Maersk have had a cooperation within securing systems since the container ship sizes started to grow from feeder sizes to the present ultra-large container ships.
Senior Vice President of the Cargo Handling Division Leif Byström said: “Maersk Line is the world’s leading container shipping company, with operations in all parts of the world. We are very happy to be able to extend our cooperation in the development of our container securing systems. I am convinced that this will benefit both parties, as the ship sizes continue to grow with increasing efficiency requirements.”
MacGregor has a long history as leading supplier of container securing systems.
Vice President, Head of Technical Operations, Maersk Line, Ole Graa Jakobsen said: “We are committed to offering our customers competitive ocean transportation, and extending our cooperation with MacGregor will contribute to our continued success in this.”
