Following the announcement on Monday, July 6 and receipt of required competition approvals, Maersk has completed the acquisition of the KGH Customs Service, a pan-European customs services provider. The acquisition will further strengthen Maersk’s capabilities as an integrated container logistics company, offering end-to-end supply chain solutions to its global customers.
“I am very pleased that we can now officially welcome KGH into the Maersk family”, said Karsten Kildahl, Regional Managing Director of Maersk in Europe. “The integration process now begins, and we are very excited to start working together and start learning from one another.”
During the remainder of 2020, Maersk and KGH teams will work together on establishing a joint operating model and optimal structure to serve their customer base going forward. Customers will meanwhile continue to interact with their current contacts in both organisations.
Lars Borjesson, CEO of KGH, will lead the combined customs related activities of both KGH and Maersk in Europe.
