Maersk has disclosed that it plans to provide logistics and supply chain management support for fast-moving consumer goods companies in Nigeria.
The Head, Marketing and Business Development, Africa Region of Maersk, Anita De Werd, revealed this in a statement that the company aimed to support Nigerian FMCG companies in effectively managing their inventories and product delivery.
De Werd said Maersk recognised the importance of bringing together expertise, platforms and clients to find practical, effective methods and solution for addressing the complexities in the FMCG supply chain.
She said, “Managing the complexity in any supply chain requires having a good balance between the costs, demands and preferences for doing business around the world.
“We plan to deploy our international track record in supply chain management to the benefit of our customers. This means they will, through us, have instant access to the vast array of knowledge and experience that we have gained from working with different industries, regions and systems.
“We are not only able to understand the issues around logistics and supply chain management facing FMCG companies, but more importantly, we are able to bring solution to their pain points by developing the appropriate solutions for their specific needs.”
According to her, Maersk is the global integrator of container logistics, adding, “We handle about a fifth of global containerised trade. Our purpose as a company is to enable trade for the benefit of society and our customers,” she said.
She said Maersk would focus on solving FMCGs supply chain needs from end to end, taking the complexity out of container shipping.
