A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) announces the construction of the company’s first low GHG emissions contract logistics warehouse in Denmark, realised in partnership with Taulov Dry Port, a Danish joint venture between ADP A/S and PFA Pension. The warehouse is part of Maersk’s strategy to accelerate the delivery of fulfilment capability in Denmark.
“We are pleased to announce our first green contract logistics warehouse in Denmark. Many of our customers are looking for long-term partners that have such capabilities to reduce their entire climate footprint. The Taulov facility also has a strategic position in Europe and will be a key asset to serve our customers as a deconsolidation point and add value by optimizing transport modes with its port, rail and road links creating flexibility in flows by accelerating or slowing down supply chains”, said Birna Odefors, Area Managing Director, Nordics, A.P. Moller – Maersk.
The green contract logistics warehouse aims to be built to BREEAM Excellent standards with zero direct emissions from operations in accordance with Maersk´s overall goal to decarbonise its entire operations by 2040. The 40.000 sqm facility has an option for an additional 40.000 sqm and is scheduled to become operational in 2024. It will be located in Taulov in South Denmark, underpinning Maersk´s strong logistics footprint in Northern Europe and responding to rising market demands.
“We are proud to be part of Maersk´s sustainable value chain supporting their customers with visionary sustainable logistics solutions. Taulov Dry Port is a European multimodal logistic hub and key player in the green transition of the logistic sector due to the sustainable infrastructure with the Port of Fredericia, the motorway and railway network. Soon the area will also be ready for the transition towards new green fuels such as hydrogen, which will be an important asset for Maersk as well as our other customers”, said Rune D. Rasmussen, CEO of ADP A/S.
