A.P Moller-Maersk Launches Maersk Air Cargo in Response to Customer’s Global Air Cargo Needs


A.P Moller – Maersk recently announced that Maersk Air Cargo would be offering integrated logistics services for their clients. At the same time, Maersk chooses Denmark’s second-largest airport, Billund, as its air freight hub for Maersk Air Cargo, with daily flights creating several jobs in the region. Maersk Air Cargo also announces its intent to agree with the Flight Personnel Union (FPU), a part of the Danish Confederation and Trade Unions (FH).

“Air freight is a crucial enabler of flexibility and agility in global supply chains. It allows our customers to tackle time-critical supply chain challenges and provides transport mode options for high-value cargo. We strongly believe in working closely with our customers. Therefore, it is key for Maersk to also increase our presence in the global air cargo industry by introducing Maersk Air Cargo to cater even better to the needs of our customers,” said Mr. Aymeric Chandavoine, global head of logistics and services, A.P. Moller – Maersk

Maersk’s controlled capacity, powered by Maersk Air Cargo, is designed specially to make supply chain journeys more resilient and intuitive. As a standalone service, Maersk Air Freight can help clients get their air cargo to the right place at the right time. Combining with the ocean, inland, warehousing, and customs services will power the supply chain in more ways than one.

Moreover, this new air freight company results from an existing in-house aircraft operator, Stan Air, supporting new and existing clients. Transferring activities have received excellent support from customers, suppliers, employees, and the Danish Civil Aviation Authority.

“Maersk Air Cargo is an important step of the Maersk Air Freight strategy, as it will allow us to offer customers a truly unique combination of air freight integrated with other transport modes. We see an increased and continued demand for air cargo both today and going forward as well as a growing demand for end-to-end logistics, why it is important for us to strengthen our own-controlled capacity and advance further on our air freight strategy” said Mr. Torben Bengtsson Global Head of Air & LCL , A.P. Moller – Maersk

Maersk last operated at Billund in 2005 and will progressively deploy and operate a controlled capacity of five aircraft – two new B777F and three leased B767-300 cargo aircraft. In addition, three new B767-300 freighters will also be added to the US-China operation, which a third-party operator will initially handle. The new aircraft are expected to be operational from the second half of 2022 to 2024. Billund Airport is also looking forward to welcoming Maersk Air Cargo, which will benefit the growth of the West Danish business community.
