Agility Chemical Logistics has had a close relationship with Maersk for almost 20 years, entrusting them with the safe ocean transportation of the multi-hazardous product portfolio of our chemical manufacturing customers. As manufacturing sites for hazardous chemicals have diversified around the world, and similarly the demand has broadened to distant locations, often involving transhipment at outlying ports, it has been reassuring to partner with Maersk in particular to deliver high-hazardous chemicals in the full knowledge that they share the same uncompromising focus on safety as ourselves.Agility Chemical Logistics Ltd
