Copenhagen, 7 September 2009 – The A.P. Moller – Maersk Group’s logistics activities start trading as Damco on Monday 7 September 2009.

Martin Thaysen, Chief Commercial Officer at Damco says: “The new brand gives us a much stronger platform to present and deliver our full service portfolio. We have a strong global coverage, with particular strengths in emerging markets, and we deliver both single freight forwarding services or structure more advanced individual solutions for our customers, depending on their needs.”
“We are looking forward to working with our customers, business partners, and colleagues on making the new Damco a success,” says Martin Thaysen.
