The realignment of Maersk Line, which will result in the loss of 400 jobs including about 250 jobs in Copenhagen, has begun. The process involves three rounds, the first of which has taken place to today. The last round will take place on June 22. On said date, every employee of Maersk Line will know whether they will keep their jobs, continue at the firm in a new position, or must begin to seek employment outside the world’s largest container company.

“From now on and until June 22, the dismissals will take place, and it will happen in a top down process. At the top is the line and management board. Below is the second tier, which was informed today when the organization plan was presented, and then the process continues downward until June 22 on which date everyone will have been notified,” says public relations officer of the Maersk group, Michael Christian Storgaard, to ShippingWatch.
