The partnership includes door-to-door transport and all airfreight shipments
As part of maneuvering successfully in a challenging environment, Vestas and Maersk have formed a long-term strategic partnership for all containerised transport, the companies announced in a press communique.
The partnership includes door-to-door transport from the company´s suppliers to their factories and service warehouses as well as containerised site parts and transport equipment.
In addition, the partnership also includes all airfreight shipments. The partnership does not include non-containerised road transport and outbound transport, which will continue to be managed by DSV and other partners.
“By partnering with Maersk, we can further accelerate the deployment of wind energy and protect profitability, while working together on developing solution that can make our supply chain more sustainable,” noted Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, Chief Operating Officer, Vestas.
“We will work to provide fast, resilient and dynamic supply chain solutions to Vestas as a modern end-to-end logistics company with fully controlled assets, while empowering them and turning complications into opportunities,” observed Vincent Clerc, Executive Vice President and CEO, Ocean and Logistics, AP Moller-Maersk.
By partnering with Maersk, the world’s largest asset owner within shipping and containers, Vestas gets direct access to container capacity at a fixed price. This would otherwise be hard to secure in the current environment and thus, it will help ensure business continuity and cost predictability. The existing DSV partnership will continue with a special focus on non-containerised transport. This means that in addition to the Maersk strategic partnership, Vestas will continue to work closely with DSV and many other partners within other areas of transport. The partnership is effective per 1. January 2022.
