Logistics is made for the movies—after all, it is a business built around motion. The Danish transportation and logistics giant A.P. Møller-Maersk Group clearly subscribes to that idea, as evidenced by its recent launch of a series of short films showcasing the capabilities of its divisions, including Damco and Maersk Line.
The "We are Maersk" videos feature the requisite employees talking about devotion to the customer and executives extolling the company's business philosophy. But the films are more than just moving versions of corporate brochures. They include interesting and often artistic vignettes of activities like the voyage of citrus fruits from remote areas of South America to cocktail bars in Europe and the construction of a new ocean container.
The beautifully shot and edited films are themselves a product of complex global logistics:
