AP Moller – Maersk is expanding its relationship with Microsoft to further digitize and decarbonize logistics

Azure gives Maersk access to a resilient and high-performing portfolio of cloud services, enabling its organization to innovate and deliver scalable, reliable and secure products with faster time-to-market. The cloud backbone enables Maersk to build scalable platforms for organic and inorganic growth, supporting Maersk’s transformation strategy. In addition, Maersk will be able to gain better insights and support new ways of working through the use of machine learning and data analytics.

“I am very pleased to extend our collaboration with Microsoft. With Microsoft, we can use their innovations in technology to drive our innovations in logistics. Together we have a unique and interdependent relationship based on mutual building, trust and an understanding of the strategic direction of both companies that is valuable to all,” said Navneet Kapoor, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology and Information Officer at AP Moller – maersk

By expanding its relationship with Microsoft, Maersk aims to accelerate its transformation and further digitize logistics.

“Digital technologies are critical for the logistics industry to create solutions and services that help build and sustain resilient supply chains,” said Judson Althoff, Microsoft executive vice president and chief commercial officer. “With Azure as Maersk’s strategic cloud platform, Microsoft and Maersk are collaborating to accelerate innovation and digitize the industry to meet the evolving needs of their customers.”

The collaboration between Maersk and Microsoft has already brought innovative digital solutions to market, such as Remote Container Management (RCM), which enables Maersk to monitor real-time temperature and humidity data from hundreds of thousands of refrigerated shipping containers to ensure food and Other perishable goods arrive in perfect condition.

Another project, Connected Vessel, aims to optimize fuel economy by monitoring performance data from Maersk container vessels to provide a shared view with experts on shore advising captains, thereby reducing bunkering costs and reducing fuel consumption emissions can contribute.

Both projects are great examples of the benefits that digitalization brings to Maersk’s customers and their businesses, as well as the commitment to decarbonizing logistics.

As part of Microsoft’s commitment to actively deploy and scale low-carbon solutions for global supply chain operations, Maersk is a key partner for Microsoft in air freight, ocean freight and inland services and provides logistics services to Microsoft. The companies also recently expanded their air freight cooperation, with Maersk intending to use its own controlled freighter network to support Microsoft’s global supply chain. In addition, the companies plan to work together to strengthen their global strategic relationship on three core pillars: IT/Technology, Ocean & Logistics, and Decarbonization. The main goals of this work are to identify and explore co-innovation opportunities and drive digital innovation and decarbonization in logistics. Maersk’s goal is to develop cutting-edge solutions to accelerate and modernize collaboration and processes, further enabling modern work experiences to create value for its customers and employees.
