Container Shipping and Economic Development

A Case Study of A.P. Moller - Maersk in South East Asia

By Majbritt Greve, Henrik Schaumburg-Muller, Michael W. Hansen

This book presents the findings of a study on the world's largest container shipping firm, A.P. Moller - Maersk, and its role in integrating developing countries into the global economy. The study focuses on A.P. Moller - Maersk's container business in Southeast Asian developing countries — Vietnam in particular. Building on an extensive empirical analysis, the book suggests that A.P. Moller - Maersk's container business may play an important role in the integration of global production processes, not only by moving goods from A to B and coordinating multiple modes of transport, but also by coordinating and integrating increasingly atomized production processes at a global scale. The book contributes to the understanding of the role of container shipping services in economic development processes.
