What we did
MMC identified a range of concrete growth options across cargo types in global priority geographies through extensive desk top research, a wide range of expert interviews and triangulation of data sources in excel models. The team conducted market studies based on key characteristics such as global demand balance, outlook and growth drivers together with a fit analysis with definition of entry modes and fit with APMT across priority geographies across adjacent business areas.
Opportunities were assessed within e.g. dry bulk terminals like mining and grain, liquid bulk like oil storage and LNG, Landlord operation of ports and general cargo like transport of oversized goods, such as windmills. Furthermore, the team supported with project management including regular updates to the Maersk Groups executive board and APM Terminals’ senior management team.
Within the prioritized geographies the team concluded the project by conducting an M&A scan of potential targets to identify concrete investment opportunities.
