Brain Godsafe, Managing Director of Maersk Line UK & Ireland said, “I’m delighted to host the naming ceremony of a Triple E here in the UK, in the company of our customers and partners. The Triple Es, with their efficiency, economies of scale and environmental benefits, are an embodiment of our business. It is fitting that some of our customers, the lifeblood of our business, are able to be a part of such an event at the Port of Felixstowe, which is a key partner in the services we offer.”
