The Inland Services is a network of inland terminals around the globe consisting of 36 business units with over 100 locations.
Adding Inland Services to Maersk will enable a seamless access to a wider range of logistics and services offerings, said Søren Toft, EVP and Chief Operating Officer A.P. Moller - Maersk.
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,
Meanwhile, 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.
The even closer collaboration will allow both organizations to reduce complexity and eliminate service overlaps, according to Morten Engelstoft, CEO APM Terminals and EVP A.P. Moller - Maersk.
Today, Inland Services serves both shipping line and landside operators.
For shipping line operators, the offering of Inland Services centres around depot, container equipment maintenance and repair and transportation.
For landside operators, 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.
