Fredericia – Less than two years ago, Maersk started construction works for its first low greenhouse gas emission warehouse in Denmark, located in Taulov Dry Port in Fredericia. On 24th June 2024, the facility was officially launched, brining together customers, local authorities and partners for a symbolic ribbon-cutting ceremony and the tour of the new site.

This facility is Maersk’s first low-emission warehouse and sets new international standards for the development of low-emission warehouses and logistics facilities, in line with the company’s ambition to achieve net-zero CO2 emission by 2040 throughout its operations. It will also play a key role in Maersk’s logistics footprint in the Nordics, significantly improving the handling of cargoes that arrive to the region by Road, sea and Air.

We are bringing to life a true logistics hub located right in the centre of the Danish Triangle Region. This will be a new centre of gravity, with easy access to the main infrastructure elements – ports, rail and road, but also our air hub in Billund – making it a perfect and tangible example of integrated logistics solutions that are at the heart of Maersk’s strategy. But more importantly, this facility also directly responds to the needs of our customers, many of whom are operating their own distribution centres and production facilities in the area.

The project is a joint enterprise between Maersk and Taulov Dry Port, owner of the land. The warehouse was built according to BREEAM Excellent standards with zero direct emissions from operations.

It is a great honour to hold the inauguration of Maersk's new warehouse in Taulov Dry Port. Maersk has seen the value in locating their storage facility here, at Denmark's multimodal transportation hub. Our good collaboration has now entered a new phase, and we look forward to its continuation.

The new facility complies with high environmental standards. All indoor and outdoor equipment in the warehouse is electrified, with solar panels installed on the entire roof and excess renewable energy produced being fed to the grid. Battery driven trucks will be used for all shunting operations and hydrogen stations are planned within 150 metres from site.
