Maersk launches financial transactions platform

Maersk’s rapid digital transformation continues apace with news Denmark’s companies register recorded on Tuesday a notable new corporate formation.

GateTu is a joint venture between A.P.Moller-Maersk and Danske Bank. The aim of GateTu, according to the registration documents filed,  is to establish and commercialise a global business-to-business technical platform with which to facilitate different types of financial transactions.

This new development, first hinted at last month, is the latest part of Maersk’s ongoing bid to be the self-proclaimed “integrator of global shipping” with a raft of digital initiatives already announced this year including tie-ups with tech titans such as IBM and Microsoft.
