A.P. Moller – Maersk to Operate Green Warehouse
A.P. Moller - Maersk (Maersk) announces the construction of the company’s first low GHG emissions contract logistics warehouse in Denmark.
The warehouse is constructed in partnership with Taulov Dry Port, which is a Danish joint venture between ADP A/S and PFA Pension. The warehouse is part of Maersk’s strategy to accelerate the delivery of fulfillment capability in Denmark.
“We are pleased to announce our first green contract logistics warehouse in Denmark. Many of our customers are looking for long-term partners that have such capabilities to reduce their entire climate footprint. The Taulov facility also has a strategic position in Europe and will be a key asset to serve our customers as a deconsolidation point and add value by optimizing transport modes with its port, rail and road links creating flexibility in flows by accelerating or slowing down supply chains,” said Birna Odefors, Area Managing Director, Nordics, A.P. Moller - Maersk in a statement.
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 decarbonize its entire operations by 2040. The facility is scheduled to become operational in 2024 and will be located in Taulov in South Denmark.
All indoor and outdoor equipment in the warehouse will be electrified, solar panels will be installed on the entire roof of the warehouse and excess renewable energy produced will be fed to the grid. Battery driven trucks will be used for all of the shunting operations and hydrogen stations are planned within 150 meters from the site.
Maersk’s emissions targets entail that at least 90% of its global cold chain and contract logistics operations will be certified as green by 2030 (Scope 1 and 2).
