Maersk acquires Martin Bencher Group to strengthen project logistics management

A.P. Moller - Maersk has reached an agreement to acquire Martin Bencher Group, a Denmark-based project logistics company.

Founded in 1997, Martin Bencher is an asset-light logistics provider specialising in project logistics. Primarily, the company designs integrated project logistics solutions and the company's competitive advantages include deep industry expertise, solid track record, long-term stakeholder relationships as well as a highly skilled organisation.

“Martin Bencher will be an excellent fit to Maersk and our integrator strategy, strengthening our ability to provide project logistics services to our global clients,” noted Karsten Kildahl, regional managing director in Europe of Maersk.

“When Martin Bencher joins the Maersk family, we will be able to deliver project logistics services with a high degree of reliability, a proven track-record, and a strong focus on Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE). In addition to supporting our existing customers' project logistics needs, we will also be able to provide a more comprehensive offering to a wide array of industries,” he added.

The acquisition will enable Maersk to also introduce a new product, Maersk Project Logistics. It is a specialised service offering to the global logistics industry that covers the combination of solution planning, special freight transportation and project management services - including detailed planning, orchestration, and sequencing of shipments from suppliers to destination sites.

“We are thrilled to become an integral part of Maersk, which we see as an ideal fit for our people and clients. Clients requiring project logistics are aware of the constraints and challenges facing them and are seeking strategic partners with sufficient ambitions and strength to handle their entire global supply chain now and in the years to come,” said Peter Thorsoe Jensen, CEO of Martin Bencher.

“Together with Maersk, we will have the scale, commitment, and capabilities to handle the entire logistics scope of work for clients around the world – as well as expand into new industries,” he added.
