Maersk enters strategic partnership with Vestas

To serve the growing global market for sustainable energy solutions and protect profitability in an increasingly challenging global business environment for renewables, Vestas continuously looks for partners that can help mitigate negative impact from the current supply chain challenges and scale the business efficiently in the long-term.

Vestas Wind Turbine
As part of manoeuvring successfully in a challenging environment, Vestas and Maersk have formed a long-term strategic partnership for all containerised transport.

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.

The partnership does not include non-containerised road transport and outbound transport, which will continue to be managed by DSV and other partners.

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.

Tommy Rahbek Nielsen
Chief Operating Officer, Vestas

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.

Vincent Clerc
Executive Vice President and CEO Ocean and Logistics, A.P. Moller – Maersk

By partnering with Maersk, the world’s largest asset owner within shipping and containers, Vestas gets direct access to container capacity at a fixed price. This would otherwise be hard to secure in the current environment and thus, it will help ensure business continuity and cost predictability. The partnership also entails a fantastic opportunity to co-develop a joint sustainability journey, where the two leading companies can join forces to decarbonise logistics.

The partnership with Maersk underlines Vestas’ ambition to partner with companies that will support their growth journey by investing in scalable and sustainable solutions that drive the industry forward.

The existing DSV partnership will continue with a special focus on non-containerised transport. This means that in addition to the Maersk strategic partnership, Vestas will continue to work closely with DSV and many other partners within other areas of transport.

The partnership is effective per 1. January 2022.
