The two companies say they have formed the long-term strategic partnership “as part of manoeuvring successfully in a challenging environment.”

In a statement, Maersk said the partnership includes door-to-door transport from the company´s suppliers to their factories and service warehouses as well as containerised site parts and transport equipment. In addition, the partnership also includes all airfreight shipments.

However, as Maersk explains, the deal does not concern non-containerised road transport and outbound transport, which will continue to be managed by DSV and other partners.

Commenting on the partnership, Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, Chief Operating Officer of Vestas, said the deal would further accelerate the deployment of wind energy:

“The need for sustainable energy is as big as ever and with an increasingly challenging business environment, we are pleased to partner with Maersk on containerised transport. By partnering with Maersk, we can further accelerate the deployment of wind energy and protect profitability, while working together on developing solution that can make our supply chain more sustainable. We want to create a sustainable, resilient and predictable supply chain and by partnering with a world leader as Maersk, we strengthen our supply chain, our partnership setup within transport and create opportunities to improve sustainability.”

Meanwhile, Vincent Clerc, Executive Vice President and CEO Ocean and Logistics at A.P. Moller – Maersk, had the following to say about the deal:

“We are enthusiastic to be chosen as Vestas’ main logistics partner. Running a global supply chain that can meet the needs from a global leader in sustainable energy solutions is both a complex and highly demanding undertaking. We will work hard to provide fast, resilient and dynamic supply chain solutions to Vestas as a modern end-to-end logistics company with fully controlled assets, while empowering them and turning complications into opportunities.”
