A.P. Moller–Maersk Green Warehouse

A.P. Moller – Maersk announces the construction of the company’s first low GHG emissions contract logistics warehouse in Denmark in partnership with Taulov Dry Port, a Danish joint venture between ADP A/S and PFA Pension. The warehouse is a part of the company’s strategy to accelerate the delivery of fulfilment capability in Denmark.

“We are pleased to announce our first green contract logistics warehouse in Denmark. Many of our customers are looking for long-term partners that have such capabilities to reduce their entire climate footprint. The Taulov facility also has a strategic position in Europe and will be a key asset to serve our customers as a deconsolidation point and add value by optimizing transport modes with its port, rail and road links creating flexibility inflows by accelerating or slowing down supply chains” stated, Mr Birna Odefors, Area Managing Director, Nordics, A.P. Moller – Maersk.

The green logistics warehouse aims to be built to BREEAM Excellent standards with zero direct emissions from operations in full accordance with the company’s overall goal to decarbonize its entire operation by 2040. The 40,000 sqm facility has an option for an additional 40,000 sqm and is scheduled to become operational in 2024. The warehouse will be in Taulov, South Denmark, underpinning the company’s strong logistics footprint in Northern Europe and responding to the rising market demands.

The advances in technology, new industry standards, and a increasing number of customer demand for sustainable supply chains have hastened the ambitious project. Furthermore, the warehouse has a zero-emissions approach to both direct and indirect aspects of the operations. Additionally, charging will not only be provided to electric commercial trucks and cars, but also to private cars, bicycles, and electric scooters. Moreover, all indoor and outdoor equipment in the warehouse will be electrified, and solar panels will be installed on the entire roof of the warehouse, with the excess  renewable energy produced fed to the grid. Battery-driven trucks will be used for all the shunting operations, and hydrogen stations are planned within 150 meters of the site.

“This important partnership once again proves that Denmark is at the forefront of green transition and that climate and logistics can go hand in hand. As Denmark’s largest property investor, PFA has set an ambitious goal of cutting 33 percent of the emissions from our Danish portfolio by 2025, and Maersk will now become a decisive part of this to generate long-term and sustainable returns for our 1.4 million Danish pension customers” said Mr Michael Bruhn, Executive Director at PFA.
