AP Moller-Maersk commits to Latin American

AP Moller-Maersk is expanding its air freight operations’ footprint with an in-transit gateway in Miami.

The new facility underscores the logistic company’s commitment to providing connectivity to Latin American markets, it said in a statement.

“Our Miami expansion is a vital and strategic addition to our global gateway network, providing connectivity from Asia, Europe, and the US to Latin America,” said Global Head of Air Freight Forwarding at Maersk, John Wetherell.

The new gateway, modelled after operations in Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angles, will focus on transhipping European and Asian cargo via Miami to Latin America. It will support the North American export market to Latin America and the Asian market that serves the Latin American supply chain, via cost competitive U.S. routes.

“This addition in Miami provides our customers with substantial added value, leveraging structured routing within a gateway environment,” said Regional Head of Air Freight for North America, Brent Mayhew. “This includes seamless truck connectivity through our North American station network, ensuring efficient and reliable integrated logistics solutions.”

Fully staffed by Maersk Air Freight forwarding professionals, the 8,000 square metre space is expected to have significant southward flows and offer key certifications, including U.S. Customs bonded container freight station and a certified cargo screening facility.

“Our Miami Gateway offers an alternative routing option that can provide predictable transit times from our global network,” said Regional Head of Air Freight for Latin America, Fabio Acerbi. “It supports the North American and Asian export market, opening new possibilities for our customers in Latin America.”
