Maersk expands relationship with Microsoft

Danish shipping company Maersk has decided to boost its cloud-first technology approach by expanding the company’s use of Microsoft Azure as its cloud platform.

Azure provides Maersk access to a resilient and performing portfolio of cloud services, enabling its business to innovate and deliver scalable, reliable, and secure products with improved time to market, according to a statement.

Azure also enables Maersk to build scalable platforms to cater for organic and inorganic growth, supporting the company's transformation strategy.

Further, the use of machine learning and data analytics will enable Maersk to gain greater ‎insights and support new ways of working, according to the announcement.

Remote Container Management (RCM) is already an outcome of the existing cooperation between Maersk and Microsoft. This digital solution allows Maersk to monitor temperature and humidity data from hundreds of thousands of reefer boxes in real time.

Another project, Connected Vessel, aims at optimising fuel consumption by monitoring performance data from Maersk’s container vessels to create a shared view with experts onshore who can provide advice to ship captains, helping lower bunker costs and reducing emissions.

"Digital technologies are essential for the logistics industry to develop solutions and services that will help build and maintain resilient supply chains, Microsoft," commented executive vice president and chief commercial officer of Microsoft, Judson Althoff.

He added, "With Azure as Maersk’s strategic cloud platform, Microsoft and Maersk are collaborating to accelerate innovation and digitize the industry to meet its customers’ evolving needs."
