Maersk Line, new commercial office in Kathmandu, Nepal

  • This new office will facilitate ease of doing business for the customers in the region
  • Maersk Line is buoyant about the Nepal economy and sees it as a long-term trade partner

Mumbai, 1st June, 2018: Maersk Line, the global containerized division of the Maersk Group, announced the commencement of its new commercial office in Kathmandu, Nepal from 1st of June this year.

Maersk Line since its entry into the Nepal market over 20 years back has been providing shipping and logistical solutions through its strong network in India. However, with the rapid growth of trade in the region, Maersk Line sees an opportunity to serve its customers better by being closer to them.

Maersk Line’s customer centric approach is reflected through its dual service offerings to Nepal through Kolkata and Visakhapatnam. Its offering between Kolkata port and Inland Container Depot (ICD) at Birgunj on merchant haulage underlines its focus to provide end-to-end shipping solutions. In June 2017, Maersk moved the first-ever container shipment from Visakhapatnam to ICD Birgunj via the 'Kathmandu Express.' Maersk line being pioneer in the industry has introduced this innovative service that includes online payment, handling of documents, electronic Delivery Order issuance and timely cargo clearance in Nepal.

Commenting on this announcement, Mr Steve Felder, Managing Director, Maersk Line (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives) said, “As promised last year, we have opened our new commercial office in Nepal to facilitate ease of doing business here.  The Nepal economy has tremendous potential and we will continue to invest here.  Our focus has always been to enable trade through integrated and reliable logistical solutions and build long-term trade partnerships.”
