With its six purpose-built sheds, the new facility makes Maersk the country’s largest logistics and warehousing provider
AP Moller–Maersk (Maersk) recently inaugurated its new Integrated Logistics Park at Port Qasim, Karachi in Pakistan.
Present at the inauguration were HE Jakob Linulf, the Danish Ambassador to Pakistan; the Chairman of Port Qasim, Rear Admiral (Retd.) Syed Hasan Nasir Shah HI(M); Hasan Faraz, Managing Director, Maersk Pakistan, the leadership team at Maersk Pakistan and leaders from the top businesses in Pakistan.
The warehousing facilities especially strengthened Maersk’s position by being able to store goods that were in lower demand and slowed down supply chains when needed. This garnered a lot of confidence in the customers’ minds about Maersk’s resilience and ability to react quickly and appropriately to the changing behaviour of the end consumers.
Maersk Pakistan took the decision to invest in an Integrated Logistics Park that would act as a warehouse, including a consolidation & fulfillment centre and cold storage at Port Qasim.
Maersk Pakistan went on from acquiring a 26-acre land parcel to carefully designing and constructing a six-shed facility spread over 560,000 sq. ft. that will answer all the requirements of its customers through a single location.
This facility will cater to storage requirements of cargo from retail & lifestyle, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), automotive and technology sectors.
The Maersk Integrated Logistics Park will come equipped with modern Warehouse Management Systems.
“With our state-of-the-art Integrated Logistics Park, we want to ensure that we play an important role in connecting and simplifying the supply chains for importers, exporters and traders of Pakistan,” remarked Faraz.
“Maersk’s commitment to invest in a large facility such as the one inaugurated today in Port Qasim speaks volumes of the potential that is out there to be harnessed,” commented Ambassador Linulf.
