The dismissals of 400 employees in Maersk Line are almost completed following the ten-day period of trimming the organisation in order for it to be more efficient starting on 12 June.

Thereby, 250 employees from Esplanaden - the Copenhagen headquarters of the world’s biggest container carrier - have been told that they will need to find a new job while 150 employees on five other headquarters worldwide will also have to leave the liner carrier. Now, Maersk Line will have to restructure its departments and match the new organisation to the challenges to come. This manouevre is expected to be finalised in a few weeks.
