Rainbow container to feature at Multimodal

Maersk's iconic unit to affirm values of diversity and inclusion 
Maersk’s rainbow containers have served as a symbol of inclusion and diversity, boldly sharing with the world the company’s stand on creating a culture where all employees, partners, and customers feel welcomed and can be themselves without judgment.

They not only serve as a symbol for the company. Maersk’s clients have also showed interest in the use of these rainbow containers to move their goods around the world, and they have visited a range of customer sites.

Now one of these special boxes is to feature at Multimodal - to affirm the key values of diversity and inclusion.

“The response from our customers has been overwhelming, with many wanting more rainbow containers,” shares Rob Townley, Regional Head of Special Project Logistics.

“These containers serve as a reminder to those who feel different or like they don’t belong that they are not alone, and someone, somewhere, is standing with them and accepts them regardless of their race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or disability."

Robert Jervis, Event Director at Multimodal commented:

“We are delighted that Maersk has chosen Multimodal to showcase one of their iconic rainbow containers.

“Their aims in promoting diversity & inclusion chime exactly with ours. Indeed – as part of our “people” seminars, we have a dedicated session that covers this – as well as a wider focus on best practice in recruitment and training.”

Multimodal 2022 takes place during June – which is Pride Month in the UK – making the showcasing of the rainbow container even more relevant.

Maersk are exhibiting on stand 5050 and the Rainbow container is on stand 9040
