Global container logistics and shipping company, A.P. Moller - Maersk, has placed an order for two 777 Freighters from Boeing.

The freighters will be operated by Star Air, Maersk's in-house aircraft operator and is the company's first 777 order. Star Air currently operates an all-Boeing 767 Freighter fleet.

The 777 Freighter is the world's largest, longest range and most capable twin-engine freighter, according to Boeing.

The airplane offers 17 percent better fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions compared to legacy airplanes. With a range of 9,200 kilometers, the 777 Freighter can carry a maximum revenue payload of 102,000 kilograms, allowing Star Air to make fewer stops and reduce landing fees on long-haul routes.

The 777 Freighter is Boeing's top-selling freighter of all time. Customers have ordered more than 300 777 Freighters since the program began in 2005.

Boeing airplanes provide more than 90% of the worldwide dedicated freighter capacity.

Maersk operates in 130 countries and employs approximately 80,000 people.
