AP Moller-Maersk (Maersk) recently announced the completion of its acquisition of LF Logistics, a Hong Kong-based contract logistics company, with premium capabilities within omnichannel fulfilment services, e-commerce, and inland transport in the Asia-Pacific region. As consequence, LF Logistics will be rebranded to Maersk.
“I am thrilled to welcome LF Logistics to Maersk. Maersk in Asia has historically been primarily focused on ocean transportation out of Asia and related logistics services. With the addition of LF Logistics, Maersk gains unique and best in class capabilities to servicing the important and fast-growing consumer markets in Asia. Furthermore,” commented Ditlev Blicher, Regional Managing Director, Asia Pacific, AP Moller-Maersk.
Following the acquisition, Maersk will add 223 warehouses to the existing portfolio, bringing the total number of facilities to 549 globally, spread across a total of 9.5mn sqm.
“LF Logistics has an enviable track record of profitable growth in the region for more than two decades. Maersk’s global presence provides an ideal platform for our next phase of organizational expansion and development,” remarked Joseph Phi, Group CEO, Li & Fung and CEO, LF Logistics.
LF Logistics, with its Asia-Pacific wide footprint and industry leading fulfilment capabilities, matches Maersk’s strategic intent to support customers’ supply chain needs end-to-end as a trusted partner in control of the assets.
As part of the transaction to acquire LF Logistics, Maersk has entered a strategic partnership with Li & Fung to develop a comprehensive range of end-to-end global supply chain services with Li & Fung focusing on the upstream supply chain and Maersk focusing on the downstream supply chain.
