COPENHAGEN – On 7 September 2009, the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group will merge its supply chain management activities branded as Maersk Logistics and its freight forwarding activities branded as Damco, under the single brand name ‘Damco’.

Rolf Habben-Jansen, CEO of Maersk Logistics and Damco said: "Under the new, single brand our primary drivers remain our passion for customers and our dedication to service delivery. And our teams across the globe will become even easier to do business with than before."

"We will continue to build on the strengths already embedded in our company, particularly putting our customers and their business first. That means spending more time with our customers, asking questions, and engaging with them to build the right solutions – because we want to become and remain our customers’ preferred choice in the industry when it comes to selecting a reliable, high-quality provider across all our services," explained Rolf Habben-Jansen.

He added that "To us, it’s important that we think beyond the norm and that we create competitive solutions for our customers regardless of their size."

In the interim period between June and 7 September, the supply chain services will continue to be delivered under the Maersk Logistics brand, and the forwarding services will continue to be delivered under the Damco brand.
