Inland shuffle for Maersk group

The move, which comes into effect on 1 August 2019 is aimed at “providing customers with seamless access to a wider range of logistics & services offerings” and is described as “a next step for A.P. Moller - Maersk in the implementation of our strategy to offer end-to-end solutions to our customers”.

 

The Inland Services Portfolio is extensive, comprising 36 business units with over 100 locations around the globe. “By bringing together all operations skills and capabilities within logistics, it creates a base for growth and enables Maersk to excel in the execution within Logistics & Services products,” Maersk said in a statement.

 

“APM Terminals can fully focus on becoming a world-class port operator, while Maersk, with the integration of Inland Services, will continue to focus on ocean transportation as well as logistics and services product development and delivery,”, said Søren Toft, EVP and Chief Operating Officer A.P. Moller - Maersk.

 

“By structurally adding Inland Services to Maersk, customers will have a seamless access to a wider range of logistics and services offerings. It puts Maersk in an even better position to differentiate its offering and scale the Logistics & Services portfolio to an even broader customer base,” he added.

 

APM Terminals will focus on its core offering of port-based services, including “newly developed services such as fast-gates”, while “continuing to collaborate with Maersk for customers who are looking for end-to-end solutions,” Maersk said. “The even closer collaboration enables both APM Terminals and Maersk to reduce complexity and eliminate service overlaps, so that both brands can focus on their core strengths and provide greater value and a better experience to customers,” added Morten Engelstoft, CEO APM Terminals and EVP A.P. Moller - Maersk.

 

Maersk Inland Services offers depot, container equipment maintenance and repair and transportation to lines. For what it calls “landside customers”, Inland Services offers products focused on supply chain integration, including transportation, CFS and warehousing, and temperature-controlled handling and storage environments. Clearly Maersk wants to better position its inland network to deliver the higher value services provided to these landside customers directly.
