Maersk Appoints CBRE as Global Real Estate Adviser to Support its Strategic Shift to End-to-End Provider of Supply Chain Services
CBRE has today announced that it has been appointed as the global real estate advisor to leading logistics company Maersk on their Industrial and Logistics real estate mandate.
Maersk, headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, is one of the largest logistics companies in the world, with more than 110,000 employees in 130 countries and operating more than 450 warehouses across the globe.
As the global integrator of logistics, Maersk is working to connect, protect and simplify its customers’ supply chains by providing frictionless solutions ranging from ocean transportation to landside and air transportation, contract logistics including warehousing & distribution (W&D) and depots, custom clearances, visibility solutions and more. These integrated solutions allow Maersk to have greater control over the movement of the cargo at multiple stages of its journey and thus bring resilience to the supply chains of its customers. With the expansion of warehousing & distribution facilities, Maersk is strengthening its position further by providing a larger array of services out of one hand to its customers.
Maersk’s growth strategy requires the sourcing of both port and inland locations, with a planned acquisition rollout of distribution centres and cold storage units over the coming years, to be supported by CBRE.

This, alongside our deep understanding of the ESG considerations for real estate, makes us perfectly placed to support Maersk in finding the right facilities whilst supporting them accelerate the decarbonisation of its landside logistics. This is a significant mandate for our business, and we look forward to supporting Maersk deliver on their strategy at a time of considerable business growth.
