Maersk enters Strategic Partnership with Unilever on International Logistics


A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) announced the signing of an international freight supply chain management partnership with Unilever effective from 2022.

“We are excited that Unilever has chosen our logistics expertise and our technology platform NeoNav to provide an overview of the links that make up its ocean and air logistics operations. At the same time, NeoNav also offers actionable insights on optimising the supply chain, for example, in terms of carbon emissions. Unilever has one of the most effective supply chains in the world. We are glad that we can further support Unilever, enhancing their resilience and transparency through our digital platform and taking it to the next level,” said Aymeric Chandavoine, Head of Logistics & Services at A.P. Moller – Maersk.

The four-year agreement will see the development and management of Unilever’s International Control Tower Solution – an operational management solution that will consolidate the execution of its global ocean and air transport to enhance visibility, increase efficiency, and drive reductions in emissions across its operations.

Maersk will be providing operational management of international ocean and air transport, underpinned by Maersk’s digital supply chain platform NeoNav, which serves as a core part of the agreement.

A next-generation and first-of-its-kind solution, NeoNav unifies the physical and digital logistics worlds to give end-to-end transparency, control, and improved decision-making based on data insights, following industry standards to ensure confidentiality and neutrality required from operational management providers.

“We’re delighted to be working with Maersk to unify our global ocean and air logistics operations. Not only does this end-to-end approach ensure better service for our customers and reduce business waste, but the added visibility will also help us mitigate risk, increase agility, and help us achieve our company-wide target of becoming carbon neutral by 2039,” said Michelle Grose, VP Global Logistics and Fulfilment at Unilever.

As a part of the partnership, Maersk’s logistics expertise, data insights, and NeoNav management platform will bring further resilience, agility and end-to-end visibility to Unilever’s supply chain, which covers more than 190 countries worldwide.
