New frontiers in logistics

Air cargo, Maersk takes off

by Port News Editorial Staff

Maersk has officially entered the air cargo business. After integrating products from Damco Airfreight and the Less than Container Load (LCL) supply chain a month ago with products from its own service portfolio, the Danish giant booked 11 aircraft to deliver a large consignment of goods to a well-known tire manufacturer in Japan.

The first plane departed from Thailand last weekend. “The team has secured the most suitable aircraft for the job, optimizing and maximizing loading operations on each flight to meet the highest standards in terms of cost and transit,” said the company.

This is a substantial development that allows Maersk to complete its end-to-end service portfolio, demonstrating its ambition to become an integrated logistics provider.
