Dear Supplier,

As announced 19 September 2018, Maersk Line’s ocean product, Damco’s supply chain services and their respective value-added services (VAS) will be combined and sold as Maersk products and services going forward.

This change ensures our customers and partners will have greater choice over and improved access to the platforms and services necessary to best support their business needs. Damco Freight Forwarder will continue as a stand-alone business unit within Maersk.

This change is in line with our vision to become the global integrator of container logistics, connecting and simplifying customers’ supply chains and you are a vital part of making this transformation a success.

We value our cooperation with you and we will naturally – as always – live up to our contractual obligations. For your guidance, we plan to initiate a due diligence process in the coming period, to outline any overlapping contracts and take appropriate actions if needed. We will reach out if relevant.

You can read more on maersk.com regarding the reasoning for us taking this next important and exciting step.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your usual contact person at Damco, Maersk Line, Maersk Procurement or write an email to supplierqa@maersk.com.

We are certain you will support us during this transformation and we look forward to our continued collaboration.

 

Best regards,

Henrik Larsen
Chief Procurement Officer
