Maersk, JCB sign logistics agreement

JCB appoints Maersk as new global Lead Logistics Provider

Maersk has signed a new multi-year partnership with construction and agricultural equipment manufacturer JCB to provide logistics services across its entire supply chain.

JCB is also one of the largest privately-owned companies in the UK.

Under the agreement, Maersk will become the new global Lead Logistics Provider (LLP) for JCB offering end-to-end supply chain management services and management of its appointed third-party warehousing provider.

Maersk will establish a global control tower in the United Kingdom, and three regional control towers in the United States, China and India to provide multimodal cargo services and oversee JCB’s end-to-end supply chain.

The carrier said it will also deliver consolidation and customs services for JCB across various locations and manage its UK warehouse provider on a LLP basis, Unipart Logistics.

“JCB recognises the great value that our integrator strategy offers for their supply chains,” said Gary Jeffreys, Maersk’s Area Managing Director UK & Ireland.

“JCB and Maersk are an excellent strategic fit. This partnership will deliver a more agile and sustainable global supply chain for JCB.

“Maersk’s experience and the collective strengths of both companies make it a great opportunity for us to deliver this vision.”

Maersk currently offers integrated logistics solutions in more than 550 warehouses with a total global space of around 9.5 million square metres.

Last month, Maersk signed new leases for three new low-emissions distribution centres in Doncaster and Dublin.
