Maersk unveils first low GHG emissions warehouse in Denmark

A.P. Moller Maersk (Maersk) has launched its first low GHG emissions warehouse in Taulov Dry Port in Fredericia, Denmark.

Less than two years ago, Maersk began building the facility.

This is Maersk’s first low-emission warehouse, establishing new international standards for the construction of low-emission warehouses and logistics facilities, in keeping with the company’s goal of achieving net-zero CO2 emissions across its operations by 2040.

The facility is also expected to contribute considerably to Maersk’s logistical footprint in the Nordics, boosting the processing of shipments arriving by road, sea, and air.

Birna Ödefors, Managing Director Nordics at Maersk, said: “This will be a new centre of gravity, with easy access to the main infrastructure elements – ports, rail and road, but also our air hub in Billund – making it a perfect and tangible example of integrated logistics solutions that are at the heart of Maersk’s strategy.”

The project is a joint enterprise between Maersk and Taulov Dry Port, owner of the land. The warehouse was built according to BREEAM Excellent standards with zero direct emissions from operations.
