A.P. Moller-Maersk completes acquisition of LF Logistics
Global shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk has completed its acquisition of the Hong Kong-based contract logistics company LF Logistics.
LF Logistics – which will be rebranded to Maersk – employs 10,000 people, operates an extensive Pan-Asian network, and is the supply chain partner of choice for companies looking to grow in the Asia-Pacific region.
The acquisition will add 223 warehouses to Maersk’s existing portfolio, bringing the total number of facilities to 549 globally.
LF Logistics specialises in B2B and B2C distribution solutions within retail, wholesale, and e-commerce.
Ditlev Blicher, Regional Managing Director of Asia Pacific at A.P. Moller – Maersk, commented: “I am thrilled to welcome LF Logistics to Maersk. Maersk in Asia has historically been primarily focused on ocean transportation out of Asia and related logistics services. Transporting and managing goods manufactured in Asia for consumer markets in the West and beyond. With the addition of LF Logistics, Maersk gains unique and best in class capabilities to servicing the important and fast-growing consumer markets in Asia. Furthermore, LF Logistics expertise in omnichannel fulfilment positions us well with the global e-commerce market.”
As part of the transaction to acquire LF Logistics, Maersk has also entered a strategic partnership with Li & Fung to develop a comprehensive range of end-to-end global supply chain services with Li & Fung focusing on the upstream supply chain and Maersk focusing on the downstream supply chain.
Further, following separate regulatory approvals, the parent company of Li & Fung is expected to retain and continue to build the carved-out GFM business.
