Maersk and Nissan forge long-term partnership

Maersk and Nissan Motor have joined hands in a long-term partnership on sustainable, resilient end-to-end logistics.

In particular, the two companies will cooperate to enhance supply chain efficiency, optimise costs, and ensure reliable and timely delivery for Nissan's exports.

As part of the agreement, Maersk has been nominated to build and operate a dedicated warehousing and distribution facility for Nissan in Wuhan, China.

Located just 2 kilometres from the Yangluo port area in Wuhan, the close proximity of this facility to the port is expected to offer efficient and convenient transportation of cargo, connecting Nissan’s production lines in central China with its domestic and global markets.

The warehouse itself boasts an indoor area of 3,000 m², with an additional 500 m² for temporary expansion, as well as an outdoor area of 1,000 m².

The services provided will be tailor-made for Nissan, including inbound and outbound operations for parts and pallets, inspections, mix bundling, quality assurance and other value-added services.

"The consideration for establishing Wuhan new International Logistics Network (ILN) began last year, taking into account the expected volumes both presently and in the future. The decision to set up the facility was made based on infrastructure conditions, cost advantages, unique benefits offered, CO2 reduction and dedicated logistic partners as Maersk," commented Hiroyuki Yanagida director of Nissan (China) Parts Export Division in Nissan China Investment Company (NCIC).

Maersk has provided ocean services for Nissan for over a decade. During the past three years, both companies have collaborated across various areas to explore opportunities for logistics and services.

Now, with the grand opening of this dedicated warehouse for Nissan in central China, Maersk Greater China team achieves a milestone by bringing the company’s integrator strategy to life within the automotive industry.
