Maersk opens low-GHG warehouse

Logistics provider Maersk has opened the doors of its first ‘low greenhouse gas emission warehouse’.

The company said the new facility, located in Taulov Dry Port in Fredericia, Denmark, is part of its plans to reach net zero emissions by 2040, and ‘will play a key role in Maersk’s logistics footprint in the Nordics, significantly improving the handling of cargoes that arrive in the region by road, sea, and air,’ including from Maersk’s air hub in Billund.

All indoor and outdoor equipment in the warehouse is electric, with solar panelling installed across the roof of the facility and excess energy fed back into the grid. Battery-driven trucks will be used for all shunting operations, with hydrogen stations planned within 150 metres of the site.

The warehouse is a joint venture between Maersk and Taulov Dry Port, which owns the land and, according to the company, ‘was built to Breeam Excellent standards, with zero direct emissions from operations’.
