Maersk has taken an important step towards its vision of becoming the global integrator of container logistics with a partnership with Microsoft to use its cloud computing platform, Azure, to develop digital products and services across all brands in the A.P. Moller-Maersk Transport and Logistics division.
“Our aim is to simplify and enhance visibility in supply chains by providing a seamless end-to-end digital experience for our customers,” says Mr Ibrahim Gokcen, Chief Digital Officer, A.P. Moller-Maersk.
Microsoft’s cloud computing services and Azure platform will improve the flow of data across the company’s operations, making it easier to create and link insights related to operations and commercial activities. Establishing Azure as the sole platform for building all digital products ensures they can be developed cost-efficiently, fast and that they are scalable across the different brands in the Transport and Logistics division.
