As a result of the integration of A.P. Moller-Maersk's supply chain management activities (previously branded as Maersk Logistics) and its forwarding activities (previously branded as Damco), the group has begun branding itself Damco.
“Under the new brand, our primary drivers remain our passion for working closely with our customers and our dedication to reliable, high-quality service delivery,” said Rolf Habben-Jansen, CEO of Damco.
“The new brand gives us a much stronger platform to present and deliver our full service portfolio. We have a strong global coverage, with particular strengths in emerging markets, and we deliver both single freight forwarding services or structure more advanced individual solutions for our customers, depending on their needs,” added Martin Thaysen, Chief Commercial Officer
Damco operates in 272 offices, covering over 93 countries in Africa, Asia, North America, Europe, Middle East, and Latin America. In 2008, the company had a net turn-over of $2.8 billion, shipped more than half a million TEUs of ocean freight, air freighted over 60,000 tons, and handled over 50 million CBMs (equivalent to 2 million TEU) for our supply chain management customers, according to the company.
