A.P. Moller-Maersk integrates Damco Supply Chain and Maersk Line’s Ocean Product


On January 1, 2019, Damco’s Supply Chain Services and Maersk Line’s Ocean Product will be integrated and their respective value-added services will be combined and sold as Maersk products and services. This move is being made in an attempt to ensure an improved customer experience with fewer touchpoints and a more comprehensive service offering.

The integrated commercial organisation will operate with one management team, one sales force, a strong product organisation and one customer experience organisation, headed by Vincent Clerc, Chief Commercial Officer of Maersk. Klaus Rud Sejling, Chief Executive Officer of Damco, will take on a new position as Head of Maersk’s Logistics and Services Products, reporting to CCO, Vincent Clerc.

Three of A.P. Moller – Maersk’s regional carrier brands, including MCC Transport, Sealand and Seago Line will go to market as “SeaLand – A Maersk Company” as of October 1, 2018. The simplified naming structure for these brands is being carried out to strengthen brand recognition and ensure clarity of choice for customers.

Søren Skou, CEO of A.P. Moller – Maersk commented: “Today we are taking further steps in the transformation of our business on a structural level and how we go to market, enabling us to offer more solutions to our customers in a simpler way.”

Damco’s freight forwarding business, which serves customers requiring air freight or multi-carrier options in ocean freight, will continue to be run as a separate and independent business under the Damco brand.
