    Maersk Line provides containers for the Logistics Museum

    Maersk Line, the biggest container shipper in the worlds, supported the “Logistics – In motion!” projects realized by the Logistics Museum. In accordance with the agreement between the museum and Maersk, the company will donate three 40-foot containers to the museum. The containers will be retrofitted and used for showcasing museum exhibits that are currently located on the territory of the State University of Sea and River Transport n.a. Makarov.

    The idea to place the museum into mobile containers came from the creators of the first Logistics Museum in Russia, founded in St. Petersburg in 2011. In 2015, the “Logistics – In motion!” project won a grant for the “Changing museum in a changing world” contest held by the Potanin Foundation. This mobile exposition will be the first of its kind museum in the world made out of sea containers, which have themselves become a symbol of today’s global trade.

    Zsolt Katona, Cluster Sales Director at Maersk Line said: “The main point why we’ve decided is to increase the brand awareness further towards Maersk Group, which has been established 24 years ago in Russia. We believe that we should reach out and be visible not only with our existing customers & business partners, but invest in the future and be at arms’ length with the young generation of people as well. The investment in the Logistics Museum fits nicely into our overall development plan, which we’ve started with Makarov State University – the branding of Maersk Auditorium as well as the Maersk Shipping Education program, which has been launched in 2015 to provide tailor made trainings for students of the university with possibility of progression into Maersk Organization. The museum will allow us to access the even younger generation and explain the importance of container freight / logistics, which is a vital part of our everyday life and drives economic growth between the countries.”

    The opening of the new Logistics Museum is planned for autumn of 2016. Visitors will have the chance to get familiar with the world of logistics: production, storage, handling, transport, and will learn about the current state and trends of modern logistics.
