Maersk opens its first low GHG emissions warehouse in Denmark

Fredericia – Less than two years ago, Maersk began constructing its first low greenhouse gas emission warehouse in Denmark, situated in Taulov Dry Port, Fredericia. On June 24, 2024, the facility was officially inaugurated, bringing together customers, local authorities, and partners for a symbolic ribbon-cutting ceremony and a tour of the new site.

This warehouse is Maersk’s first low-emission facility and sets new international standards for low-emission warehouses and logistics facilities. It aligns with the company’s ambition to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions by 2040 across its operations. The facility will significantly enhance Maersk’s logistics footprint in the Nordics, improving the handling of cargo arriving 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.”

  • Birna Ödefors, Managing Director Nordics at Maersk

The project is a joint enterprise between Maersk and Taulov Dry Port, the landowner. 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.”

  • Rune D. Rasmussen, CEO of ADP A/S, operator of the Port of Fredericia and Taulov Dry Port (in JV partnership with PFA Pension)

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