AP Moller Maersk has announced the construction of the company’s first low GHG emissions contract logistics warehouse in Denmark realised in partnership with Taulov Dry Port, which is a Danish joint venture between ADP and PFA Pension. The warehouse is part of Maersk’s strategy to accelerate the delivery of fulfilment capability in Denmark.The green contract logistics warehouse is aiming to be built to BREEAM Excellent standards with zero direct emissions from operations in full accordance with Maersk´s overall goal to decarbonise its entire operations by 2040. The 40,000 square meters facility has an option for an additional 40,000 square meters and is scheduled to become operational in 2024. It will be located in Taulov in South Denmark underpinning Maersk´s strong logistics footprint in Northern Europe and responding to rising market demands.The typical customer needs in the fields of contract logistics are to support their inventory control, cost optimisation, extended visibility, speed to market and a consistent, sustainable flow of goods to reinforce their supply chain resilience. As consequence, many of our customers are looking to build upon their offerings to their markets and require logistics partners with asset control to support their growth strategies, by establishing long-term sustainable contract logistics solutions and not just to cover the short-term demand arising due to COVID-19.Taulov Dry Port owns the commercial land and the logistic premises. Since Taulov Dry Port was established in 2017, the joint-venture partnership between ADP A/S and PFA Pension has been based on ambitions of being innovative in the development modern storage and logistics buildings and leading sustainable transport infrastructure, which among other things includes the construction of Denmark’s largest hydrogen refueling station. The parties have reached an agreement with Maersk for 12 years lease with the option to both extend and expand. The warehouse will be built by Taulov Dry Port based on Maersk’s specifications and design.
