The A.P. Moller – Maersk Group is set to merge its supply chain management business Maersk Logistics and freight forwarding arm Damco under the single brand name Damco on 7th September 2009.
The combined business will continue to offer customers a range of logistics services, including A to B forwarding, time sensitive reefer logistics, advanced supply chain management and consultancy.
Rolf Habben-Jansen, CEO of Maersk Logistics and Damco, said: “Under the new, single brand our primary drivers remain our passion for customers and our dedication to service delivery. And our teams across the globe will become even easier to do business with than before.
“We will continue to build on the strengths already embedded in our company, particularly putting our customers and their business first. That means spending more time with our customers, asking questions, and engaging with them to build the right solutions because we want to become and remain our customers’ preferred choice in the industry when it comes to selecting a reliable, high-quality provider across all our services.
The companies have more than 10,000 customers globally within the retail, apparel, electronics and chemical industries, as well as independent importers and exporters.
In the interim period until 7th September, the supply chain services will continue to be delivered under the Maersk Logistics brand, and the forwarding services will continue to be delivered under the Damco brand.
