Maersk forms Indian digital trucking partnership

Maersk has formed a strategic partnership with Indian digital trucking marketplace solutions startup BlackBuck to provide an online marketplace for containerised trucking in and out of the world’s second most populous nation.

Maersk and BlackBuck said they are looking to address key local trucking challenges together around demand-supply visibility, real-time tracking, and improving asset utilisation by creating better network visibility for customers.

Arjun Maharaj, head of sales for Maersk South Asia, commented, “Our customers are dealing with fragmented vendors with varying service levels of communication, geographical, financial and infrastructural disparities resulting in suboptimal supply chains. At Maersk, we have committed ourselves to working with partners who understand these challenges, match our set of values, and have expertise in both logistics and technology.”
