Maersk join hands with Damco

Jul '07
Damco Sea & Air and Maersk Logistics are pleased to announce that as of 1 July 2007, we will integrate the Dutch freight forwarding company Damco Sea & Air with Maersk Logistics' forwarding activities. The combined business will trade under the name of 'Damco'.

Both companies have a long history of offering customers ocean freight, air freight, and land-based services such as trucking, customs clearance, and document management.

The new Damco will continue to provide freight forwarding services to existing and new customers through a global network of local branch offices with local staff who understand the local market conditions.

The new Damco organisation will have approx. 3,600 colleagues in over 90 countries world-wide.

The A.P. Moller - Maersk Group acquired Damco Sea & Air in 2005 in connection with the acquisition of P&O Nedlloyd. Damco Sea & Air was the forwarding arm of P&O Nedlloyd and was established in 1988.

Besides supply chain management services, Maersk Logistics has been providing freight forwarding services for a number of years, since 2001 under the name of 'DSL Star Express'. Together with Maersk Logistics' air freight and land-based services, DSL Star Express will be renamed 'Damco' on 1 July 2007.
