Based in Copenhagen, Procurement coordinates and carries out procurement for Maersk. Since 2001, we have been developing long-standing, mutually beneficial relationships with a large number of suppliers across the world. Procurement is responsible for sourcing goods and services for the Group, selecting suppliers and negotiating agreements. Once the agreements are in place, both we and the various companies within Maersk make sure that both operational purchasing and relationship building is carried out on a day-to-day basis.

Our suppliers

It is our firm belief that there is more to procurement than just cost. With the right suppliers, we aspire to build sustainable and value creating relationships, offering business opportunities with Maersk and ensuring the lowest total cost of ownership for the products and services we buy. We are always interested in hearing from potential new suppliers. If you are interested in working with Maersk, please use this opportunity to learn more about how we carry out procurement.

Benefits for both sides

Group Procurement’s vision is to be a leading-edge procurement organisation. One way of achieving this is by creating beneficial situations for both ourselves and our suppliers. We aspire to continuously look for ways to unlock value of our suppliers’ offerings. We believe that a close relationship should be built with any supplier who brings value to our business; a relationship in which benefits go both ways. Once a supplier is chosen based on a thorough go-to-market process, we work to promote and create cross-Group awareness and efficiencies of the products and services provided.
