The integrated transport and logistics division in A.P. Moller - Maersk has begun an exciting growth journey, a path that is built on three pillars: organic growth, acquisitive growth and growth through digital.
In order to bring further firepower to our organic growth agenda a dedicated department, Growth Initiatives, has been established with direct reporting to our CEO.
The scope of Growth Initiatives is to, over the coming years, develop new "physical" businesses adjacent to our current offerings in transportation, logistics and ports.

Focus will be on developing a catalogue of ideas – originating from within and outside the company – for new services that fit within our strategic framework.
To accelerate this, we are in Growth Initiatives currently building a strong team of experienced Venture Partners, Business Development Leads as well as analysts who together will lay the foundation for and accelerate this exciting growth journey by applying innovative approaches and using their business development capabilities.
