Discover our three unique value-added solutions

Every dollar matters

We help you optimise your overheads by minimising unnecessary expediting costs, speculating the acceleration process, and enhancing incident management. Our intuitive 4PL platform improves visibility and helps you turn raw information into actionable insights for quicker decision-making.

Faster decision-making decreases lead time across fragmented functions. This in turn, gets your cargo running quickly in a smooth and seamless manner, ensuring that your costs are reduced drastically.

Every part matters

With assembly lines becoming more complex, churning out both internal combustion and electric vehicles, a partnership with Maersk ensures that your components reach the right place at the right time. We enable this by decreasing the degree of variability, speeding up or slowing down the flow of cargo with careful planning and coordination, and by reviewing the lead times.

We analyse the critical path for you – be it transit time, point of entry, resilience, product worth, and transportation modes – so you always have a comprehensive digital view of your end-to-end supply chain, to make key decisions on the go.

Furthermore, with NeoNav – our latest visibility platform in conjunction with E2Open capabilities – you can now enjoy increased transparency via our multi-tier inventory view, giving you higher levels of control, speed and resilience, from end to end.

Every network matters

The number of components that go into a finished vehicle today is huge/enormous/extensive. This puts incredible pressure on you to source and transport critical automotive tech and hardware from multiple locations across the globe. In an age where disruptions abound, having a fragmented supply chain with multiple vendors is a risky strategy.

At Maersk, our continuous improvement processes integrate data, strategy and resources to ensure that your components always move via the most optimised supply chain networks in the world. Our dependable ocean and inland solutions coupled with alternative modes of transport are designed to help you reach markets – near and far, big and small, urban and remote – with the highest levels of visibility, control, and timeliness, every step of the way.

That said, when you partner with Maersk, you can rest assured that we go all the way to ensure that you enjoy the joint capabilities of the planning and control of your automotive supply chain. Together, they will lead you to take faster decisions and reduce costs.
