AP Moller - Maersk regional container lines brands MCC Transport and Seago Line will be disappearing from the start of October as part of a reorganisation of its business announced on Wednesday.

The Asia regional line MCC Transport, European regional line Seago Line, and its Americas regional brand Sealand will all be renamed SeaLand – A Maersk Company from 1 October 2018.

“The simplified naming structure for these brands will help strengthen brand recognition and ensure clarity of choice for customers,” Maersk said.

The Singapore-headquartered MCC Transport brand has been in the market for over 20 years and counts itself as the 21st largest container line in the world in capacity terms. Seago Line is an independent company within Maersk founded in 2011.

The SeaLand brand was reactivated in 2014 for Maersk's America's regional business having laid dormant since 2006 after it was retired when Maersk Sealand acquired P&O Nedlloyd.
