May 16, 2019: Come August 1, 2019, APM Terminals Inland Services will be integrated into Maersk Logistics
May 16, 2019: Come August 1, 2019, APM Terminals Inland Services will be integrated into Maersk Logistics & Services, creating a base for growth and enabling Maersk to offer wider solutions within logistics and services products.
"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. 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 and services portfolio to an even broader customer base," says Sren Toft, EVP and chief operating officer A.P. Moller - Maersk.
In addition to the focusing on its core offering, APM Terminals will continue to serve shipping line and landside customers with services on and around the port premises such as traditional storage and terminal handling as well as newly developed services such as fast-gates.
For shipping line customers, the offering of Inland Services centres around depot, container equipment maintenance and repair and transportation. For landside customers, Inland Services is supporting these customers by integrating their supply chains locally through services such as transportation solutions, CFS and warehouse, depots and temperature-controlled handling and storage environments.
"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," says Morten Engelstoft, CEO APM Terminals and EVP A.P. Moller - Maersk.
The Inland Services portfolio is a network of inland terminals around the globe consisting of 36 business units with over 100 locations.
