Maersk Booking Services

Simplify your carrier bookings.

So much to do, so little time

Booking consignments on your own is not easy. Neither is it an efficient use of your time. We know that given a choice, you would prefer to concentrate on tactical and strategic decisions rather than solving operational booking issues. Tasks like coordinating across multiple supplier geographies is not your core business. Neither is worrying about booking deadlines, documentation and demurrage or detention costs.

What you need is an experienced partner that knows how to navigate the world of booking. One that who can simplify both booking creation and management, proactively.
