Since founded in 1914 by Mr. A.P. Møller as a small, independent Danish shipbroking operation, we have come a long way in terms of business volume and global reach but decency and integrity have always been at heart. Our business culture and values, established by Mr. A.P. Møller and reaffirmed by his son, Mr. Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller and now guided by Ms. Ane M. M. Uggla, of high standards of morals and ethics have always prevailed and will continue to do so. Our heritage, global reach, dedication and creativity explain why we are known as the shipbrokers the world trusts.
