Maersk to open first green warehouse
Shipping and logistics giant A.P. Moller – Maersk is to set up its first low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions logistics warehouse in Denmark.
Birna Odefors, Area Managing Director, Nordics, A.P. Moller – Maersk, said: “Many of our customers are looking for long-term partners that have such capabilities to reduce their entire climate footprint.”
The 40,000 sqm facility has an option for an additional 40,000 sqm and is scheduled to become operational in 2024. It will be located in Taulov in South Denmark. The project will be carried in partnership with Taulov Dry Port, which is a Danish joint venture between ADP A/S and PFA Pension.
“The Taulov facility also has a strategic position in Europe and will be a key asset to serve our customers as a deconsolidation point and add value by optimizing transport modes with its port, rail and road links creating flexibility in flows by accelerating or slowing down supply chains,” said Odefors.
Maersk’s emissions targets entail that at least 90% of its global cold chain and contract logistics operations will be certified as green by 2030.
