Maersk Line announced on 8th January the revival of the SeaLand brand with the formation of a new US-headquartered, intra-Americas container shipping firm of the same name.

This new affiliate will have a structure similar to Maersk’s other successful regional carriers including: intra-Asia carrier MCC Transport and intra-Europe carrier Seago Line. SeaLand will officially commence independent operations at the start of 2015 with a team of 240 employees. The original SeaLand, a container shipping firm founded by American containerisation pioneer Malcolm McLean in 1960 was bought by Maersk in 1999.
