AP Moller-Maersk has been recognized as a Leader in the 2024 Gartner Magic Quadrant™ for Third-Party Logistics (3PL) report.

It’s the third consecutive year that Maersk has been named a Leader. According to Gartner, Leaders execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow.

The Magic Quadrant for Third-Party Logistics, as explained by Gartner, “evaluates global third-party logistics providers. Supply chain leaders responsible for logistics can use this research to assess these 3PLs when considering outsourcing elements of their logistics operations."

Why we believe Maersk was recognised as a Leader

Maersk believes being named a Leader in the 2024 Magic Quadrant for 3PL is recognition of our ability to supply customers with a wide range of quality transportation products and logistical services – from ocean and inland transportation to warehousing, customs management and beyond. As part of our Integrator 2030 strategy, we are developing a fully integrated logistics offering for our customers by offering end-to-end logistics services.

In the last year, Maersk has continued to progress towards delivering that strategy, which will allow customers to either opt for the full suite of logistics services or pick and choose from the full catalogue. For example, throughout 2023, Maersk integrated most of its acquisitions into the Maersk brand, including Hamburg Süd, Sealand, Senator, LF logistics, and Pilot Freight Services. The goal is to simplify operations and make it easier to deliver end-to-end supply chain value to customers wanting fully integrated solutions. At the same time, it will help us improve service quality for customers that are choosing one or more solutions, depending on their business needs.

Global markets are evolving fast, supply chains are increasingly complex, and being equipped to handle disruption is a necessity. Maersk is working to offer logistics solutions that connect, protect, and simplify your supply chain. This is underpinned by a combination of Maersk’s physical assets, new digital platforms, and insights-driven advice.

We are proud to have AP Moller-Maersk named as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Third-Party Logistics, Worldwide report for a third year in a row. As a trusted supply chain partner, we are working hard to offer our customers quality, sustainable, and innovative transportation products and logistics solutions that connect, protect, and simplify their supply chains. In this world of frequent disruption and complexity, we believe the outcome of the 2024 Magic Quadrant shows how we are constantly evolving our offering to every logistical need. We remain committed to supporting our customers all the way.

Where to from here? The future of logistics

Maersk understands the increasing pressure our customers’ supply chains are under. We have seen first-hand the impact of rising costs to geopolitical tensions, labour shortages and market fluctuations. To enable our customers to achieve their business outcomes, we are focused on optimising costs, enhancing visibility, and maximising supply chain resilience.

Sustainability matters to us at Maersk. As well as our own goal of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040, we support our customers in meeting their own sustainability targets. We help our customers maintain visibility of their footprint and provide concrete solutions to achieve emissions reductions.

Going forward, we will continue to invest in product innovation, including in integrated logistics solutions and supply chain reliability. We also have plans in place to augment digital innovation and fully capitalise on advanced technologies including machine learning, computer vision, and advanced analytics. We will also continue with research and development in the areas of automation, autonomous and advanced robotics.

We will continue to strive to go all the way, delivering our customers a more connected, agile, and sustainable future for their supply chains.
