Maersk launches air freight gateway in Miami

A.P. Moller-Maersk (Maersk) extended its air freight operations footprint in April with the launch of a full-service, in-transit gateway solution in Miami, Florida.

According to Maersk, the Miami gateway will act as a critical node in the company’s worldwide air freight network.

John Wetherell, Global Head of Air Freight Forwarding at Maersk, said: “Our Miami expansion is a vital and strategic addition to our global gateway network, providing connectivity from Asia, Europe, and the US to Latin America.”

The new gateway, modelled after operations in Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles, will focus on transhipping European and Asian goods via Miami to Latin America, offering competitive freighter and passenger capacity.

This aims to benefit the North American export market to Latin America as well as the Asian market, which supports the Latin American supply chain through cost-effective US routes.

The 90,000-square-foot facility is expected to see significant southward flows and offers key certifications such as U.S. Customs bonded Container Freight Station (CFS) and Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF).

Fabio Acerbi, Regional Head of Air Freight for Latin America, added: “Our Miami Gateway offers an alternative routing option that can provide predictable transit times from our global network, improving connectivity, flexibility, and reliability. It supports the North American and Asian export market, opening new possibilities for our customers in Latin America.”

In February, Maersk created a fully digital solution for clients looking to acquire air freight services.
