Maersk targets logistics with Vandegrift buy

AP Moller-Maersk has acquired US customs house broker Vandegrift, saying that customs house brokerage is a key component in Maersk’s strategy to become an integrated container logistics company, providing end-to-end solutions to customers.

Klaus Rud Sejling, head of global logistics and services at Maersk, said: “Customers have been asking us to simplify the complexity of their global supply chains and reduce their risk so we analysed the North America market to see who had the best reputation in the brokerage/trade compliance industry and deliver immediate results to all vertical segments of our account base.

“Our findings identified Vandegrift’s top tier, professional service provider reputation, strong operating platform of services, stellar people and culture ideally fit our expectations and commercial approach as One Company.”
