Maersk to acquire Martin Bencher
A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has reached an agreement to acquire Denmark-based project logistics specialist Martin Bencher Group.
With the planned acquisition of Martin Bencher, the shipping company will also introduce Maersk Project Logistics. Maersk’s existing project logistics activities – mainly based in Europe and North America – will be consolidated into a global product offering. Maersk said that, together with the proposed acquisition of Martin Bencher, this will enable it to significantly accelerate its project logistics capabilities and develop an integrated offering to serve existing and future customers, also within new industries.
“Martin Bencher will be an excellent fit to Maersk and our integrator strategy, strengthening our ability to provide project logistics services to our global clients. When Martin Bencher joins the Maersk family, we will be able to deliver project logistics services with a high degree of reliability, a proven track-record, and a strong focus on Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE). In addition to supporting our existing customers’ project logistics needs, we will also be able to provide a more comprehensive offering to a wide array of industries,” said Karsten Kildahl, Maersk’s regional managing director in Europe.
