The three-year end-to-end agreement covers all Danish Crown’s business units, delivering solutions on ocean services, inland logistics and cold chain logistics.

Access to the digital supply chain platform Tradelens, which is underpinned by blockchain technology, is also a core part of the agreement.

The cooperation is expected to accelerate Danish Crown‘s business and reduce complexity. As explained, with a significant export to Asia and a growing business in both North- and South America it is key for Danish Crown to ensure a flexible and resilient supply chain to support their business needs and meet its sustainability targets.

”There is no doubt, that Maersk is at the leading the sustainability transition within container logistics, which very much aligns with our own ambitions to become the world´s most sustainable meat supplier in 2030,” Jais Valeur, Group CEO of Danish Crown, said.

The global agreement entered into effect on 1 October 2021 and is said to be Europe’s largest on reefer logistics.
