Mumbai: Maersk India, the integrated logistics company, today inaugurated its brand new warehouse in Bhiwandi on the outskirts of Mumbai. Present at the inauguration of the new facility were Ryan Best, Head of Logistics & Services, Maersk West & Central Asia, Darryl Judd, Head of Products, Maersk South Asia, Anuj Kathuria, President (India), JK Tyre & Industries Ltd., Rajesh Gupta, Head of Supply Chain, JK Tyre & Industries Ltd., along with leadership teams of both companies.
As an integrator of logistics, Maersk is developing and providing solutions ranging from ocean transportation to landside and air transportation, contract logistics including warehousing & distribution (W&D) and depots, custom clearances, visibility solutions and so on.
When supply chains were impacted due to the disruptions caused by the pandemic, Maersk’s resilient end-to-end solutions ensured customers’ cargo kept moving.
The integrated solutions allow Maersk to have greater control over the movement of the cargo at multiple stages of its journey and thus bring resilience to the supply chains.
With the expansion of W&D facilities, Maersk is strengthening its position further by providing a larger array of services through a single window to its customers.
