Maersk Opens Integrated Logistics Park at Pakistan Port

Global logistics giant A.P. Moller–Maersk has opened its new Integrated Logistics Park at Port Qasim in Pakistan.

In the height of supply chain disruptions caused by the global pandemic, Maersk Pakistan decided to invest in an Integrated Logistics Park that would act as a warehouse, including a consolidation and fulfilment center and cold storage, at Port Qasim. Maersk Pakistan acquired the 26-acre land parcel and designed and constructed a six-shed facility spread over 560,000 square feet that will answer all the requirements of its customers through a single location.

The park will come equipped with modern warehouse management systems. With Maersk taking care of the movement of cargo–ocean transportation on one side and landside transportation on the other side of the warehouse–customers should experience less handovers of their cargo, leading to higher efficiencies, faster turnaround times, deeper visibility and better control.

“At Maersk, our purpose is to improve life for all by integrating the world,” Hasan Faraz, managing director of Maersk Pakistan, commented during the inauguration of the facility. “With our state-of-the-art Integrated Logistics Park, we want to ensure that we play an important role in connecting and simplifying the supply chains for importers, exporters and traders of Pakistan. I am proud of this major investment in Pakistan and it is a critical building block in the logistics infrastructure. It is also apt to recognize the unwavering support our customers have extended, with whom we could have meaningful conversations that helped us design a solution that creates value in their supply chains.”

Jakob Linulf, the Danish ambassador to Pakistan, said at the opening that Pakistan has “incredible potential to grow and there are enough opportunities for trade to flourish here.”

“Despite the various current challenges, Maersk has played an important role as a trusted partner for Pakistan’s traders,” Linuff added. “Maersk’s commitment to invest in a large facility such as the one inaugurated today in Port Qasim speaks volumes of the potential that is out there to be harnessed.”
