Maersk rejigs inland services division

APM Terminals Inland Services will be integrated into Maersk Logistics & Services from August 1 in the next step of A.P. Moller – Maersk’s strategy to offer end-to-end solutions to its customers.

The Inland Services portfolio is a network of inland terminals around the globe consisting of 36 business units with over 100 locations.

“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,”, said Søren Toft, EVP and chief operating officer at A.P. Moller – Maersk. Toft said the move would help differentiate its service offerings from its rivals.

Inland Services offers services for both shipping line customers and landside customers. For shipping line customers, the offering of Inland Services centres around depot, container equipment maintenance and repair and transportation. For landside customers, Inland Services helps customers by integrating their supply chains locally through services such as transportation solutions, CFS and warehouse, depots and temperature-controlled handling and storage environments.
