Maersk has signed a new multi-year partnership with construction and agricultural equipment manufacturer JCB (one of the largest privately-owned companies in the UK) to provide logistics services across its entire supply chain.

Under the agreement, Maersk will become the new global Lead Logistics Provider (LLP) for JCB offering end-to-end supply chain management services and management of its appointed third-party warehousing provider.

Maersk will establish a global control tower in the United Kingdom, and three regional control towers in the United States, China and India to provide multimodal cargo services and oversee JCB’s end-to-end supply chain.

The carrier said it will also deliver consolidation and customs services for JCB across various locations and manage its UK warehouse provider on a LLP basis, Unipart Logistics.

“JCB recognises the great value that our integrator strategy offers for their supply chains,” said Gary Jeffreys, Maersk’s Area Managing Director UK & Ireland.

“JCB and Maersk are an excellent strategic fit. This partnership will deliver a more agile and sustainable global supply chain for JCB.

“Maersk’s experience and the collective strengths of both companies make it a great opportunity for us to deliver this vision.”

Maersk currently offers integrated logistics solutions in more than 550 warehouses with a total global space of around 9.5 million square metres.

Last month, Maersk signed new leases for three new low-emissions distribution centres in Doncaster and Dublin.
