Maersk is a theme first released in 1974 focusing on cargo transportation. It includes eight sets so far, all based on a container-carrying vehicle. It is based upon the real world company, Maersk, which was established in 1904, and is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The first Maersk set was released in 1974. It was a blue mini-scale container ship, which, because of its small size, did not include any minifigures. Since then, three trucks, three more ships, and a train have been made, with the newest set being a ship, 10241 Maersk Line Triple-E, which is released on January 1 2014. All of the sets have included light grey cargo containers. All three of the trucks have included a minifigure, although they varied greatly in their appearance. The train includes three minifigures, all of which have identical uniforms.
