With the integration of Maersk Distribution Services Inc. (MDSI) into Damco, comes more transparency in global distribution, company executives in Copenhagen explained.
In an interview with SCMR, Rolf Habben-Jansen, CEO of Damco elaborated on the new strategic direction.

“The addition of MDSI to Damco allows us to now offer a 100 percent controlled complete end-to-end solution from Purchase Orders placed with a vendor in a country in Asia to delivery at the final destination,” he said. “Beyond that it also provides end-to-end item visibility and many opportunities to redirect goods throughout the supply chain…even when they are being transported across the ocean or via the air to the destination country.”

As reported in SCMR’s sister publication, Logistics Management, MDSI generates around $200 million in revenue per year in the U.S. and Canada and employs more than 600 people. It is a warehousing and distribution company which delivers cross-docking, transload, warehousing and inland transportation services to shippers from its 18 facilities in the major ocean and rail gateways in North America.

Damco, the logistics arm of A.P. Moller-Maersk is currently ranked number 17 in among global forwarders by the consultancy of Armstrong & Associates.
