Maersk and duisport to open new logistics centre

Maersk signs deal with duisport

A.P. Moller-Maersk (Maersk) and duisport have announced they will jointly build and operate a new sales and logistics centre in Duisburg.

The centre will be built on Logport VI, a trimodal logistics hub, and is expected to be designed and completed in a “short period of time”, according to a statement. It will be over 100,000 square metres in size and will create more than 350 jobs.

Once the contract has been signed and all necessary permits have been received, Maersk will develop a large distribution and warehouse complex in two phases. In a further expansion stage, another 50,000 square meters could be added.

Erich Staake, CEO of Duisburger Hafen AG, said, “After purchasing the site, I stated that my goal was to double the previous number of employees in the old paper mill which used to be in that location (300 jobs). We will exceed this forecast with the Maersk settlement and other investors acquired.”

Jens-Ole Krenzen, Vice President, North West Continent Area, Maersk, also commented, “Our customers need more than the pure transport service from port to port.

“By accompanying them from door to door along the entire transport chain, we create real added value for our customers and reduce the complexity of their supply chains.

“As a global integrator of container logistics, Maersk has the necessary assets, know-how and many years of experience.

“We are very pleased that we have found a partner in duisport who understands this profound customer orientation and who creates the infrastructural prerequisites for it at this attractive location.”
