Transforming Maersk’s logistics with Dexory’s real-time, automated insights solution

Adapting to changing demands

A.P. Moller –Maersk is an integrated container logistics company working to connect and simplify its customers’ supply chains. As the global leader in shipping services, the company operates in 130 countries and employs over 100,000 people. 

Dexory partners with Maersk’s warehousing and contract logistics division to initially operate in their Kettering facility, exploring automating inventory management and acceptance processes, and with time, improving customers’ visibility and access to inventory across facilities. 

“Maersk are working towards improving end-to-end customer visibility and access to inventory across our warehouses, ultimately offering our customers fulfilment tailored in real time and in response to changing demands” says Ingrid Ebner, Global Head of Contract Logistics, Maersk

Utilising untapped capabilities through data and automation

Maersk recognises that the automation of repetitive tasks is an essential factor for the future of warehousing, enabling staff to focus on key operations, using space wisely and more profitably, whilst attracting and retaining employees. They face multiple challenges across their expanding supply chain and logistics services, as global demand grows and supply chains become more complex. 

The partnership results from Dexory’s ability to help address these issues they were facing with an autonomous solution. The robots and data visualisation platform work together to help Maersk measure, track and locate goods across every logistics step, from inbound to storage, picking to outbound. 

Planning the future

Maersk Growth, the venture arm of Maersk, previously invested in Dexory’s most recent funding round. The growing partnership between the two companies continues, as testing and scaling innovations is at the heart of any great customer-centric team and business. The trial brings an exciting opportunity for a multi-disciplinary Maersk team to partner with Dexory to expand their capabilities and improve customer outcomes.
