Maersk announces new multi-purpose centre in Ethiopia to improve supply chain

Maersk and Freighters International (PABOMI) announced the opening of a consolidation centre in Modjo Dry Port, Ethiopia. This multi-purpose facility helps to simplify and optimise apparel and lifestyle customers’ supply chains.

A hub for export or import cargo in Ethiopia, Maersk’s new consolidation centre offers warehousing and distribution services that address supply chain issues customers may face.

With direct links from Modjo Dry Port to Djibouti Port and industrial parks, the facility offers first mile delivery, consolidation, cargo fulfilment and supply chain management solutions.

Decarbonisation is an integral part of Maersk’s strategy and the rail service that connects all the container freight stations to Djibouti Port runs fully on hydroelectric power

said Maersk.

The new consolidation centre in Modjo Dry Port aims to save time and cost through consolidation, synergies and providing a single point of contact with greater visibility.

Ultimately, the new facility will help to make Ethiopia a more attractive and competitive destination for sourcing goods for the apparel and lifestyle industries – key industries for job creation and growing the Ethiopian economy

concluded Carl Lorenz, Managing Director, Eastern Africa Area, A.P. Moller – Maersk
