“In the past two years, we have invested significant time and resources in developing different elements of the portal to establish the best digital experience for our customers. In particular, the quoting and shipment-visibility capabilities of the new portal are hitting the core of today’s demands,” comments Ralf Morawietz, CIO at Panalpina.

“Digitalization is the number one trend in logistics and our new customer portal is an industry game changer. Customers, partners and suppliers will increasingly expect to quote, buy, sell and deliver online using dedicated platforms and my priority is that Panalpina offers our customers an engaging, seamless digital experience,” says Stefan Karlen, Panalpina’s CEO.

“There is still significant paperwork coupled with inefficient processes in the industry,” Karlen adds. “With our customer portal, we are one step closer to creating a truly digital end-to-end enterprise which will enable us to drive down costs, shorten response time and offer multiple communication channels to our customers and trading partners.”

A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S accelerates transformation and grows revenue in 2018

Progress on the transformation of A. P. Moller - Maersk continued in 2018. Customers benefitted from integrated offerings, digital solutions and robust network improvements. Since 2016, the topline has grown by 43%, to USD 39bn in 2018, an additional USD 12bn in turnover.

"In 2018, we made significant progress in implementing our strategy. With the expected demerger and listing of Maersk Drilling in April, the separation of our Energy-related businesses will be almost complete. We have successfully integrated Hamburg Süd, accelerated our digital transformation and come together across sales, customer service, delivery and products as one company with customers at the centre of our attention. We are starting to see growth both in Ocean and non-Ocean segments," said Søren Skou, CEO of A.P. Moller - Maersk.

Profitability was in line with the latest guidance for 2018, with earnings before interests, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of USD 3.8bn, up 8% over 2017. The improvement in operating earnings was driven by higher freight rates, efficiencies gained from the integration of continuing operations, and synergies from the acquisition of Hamburg Süd. However, margins in continuing operations were challenged and EBITDA was lower than initially expected at the beginning of the year, primarily due to an increase in bunker fuel prices not fully recovered by higher freight rates.

"Although we had a challenging start to 2018, looking at our financial performance, we increased earnings despite significantly higher bunker fuel prices and lower than expected container volume growth in the second half of 2018. However, profitability needs to improve," said Søren Skou.

During 2018, net interest-bearing debt was significantly reduced from USD 14.8bn to USD 8.7bn and the company remains investment grade rated.

Following the listing of Maersk Drilling through a demerger and subject to maintaining investment grade rating, details on future dividend policy, capital structure and the distribution of a significant part of the proceeds from the sale of Maersk Oil will be announced no later than August 2019.



Guidance for 2019

From 2019 and onwards, International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 16 will be applied. IFRS 16 entails that leases beyond 12 months will be included in the balance sheet as assets and liabilities.



For 2019, Maersk expects EBITDA of around USD 5bn including effects from IFRS 16, and around USD 4bn excluding effects from IFRS 16.



The organic volume growth in Ocean is expected to be in line with the estimated average market growth of 1-3% for 2019. Guidance on CAPEX is around USD 2.2bn and high cash conversion (cash flow from operations compared with EBITDA) is expected.



Maersk's guidance for 2019 is subject to considerable uncertainties due to the current risk of further restrictions on global trade and other factors impacting container freight rates, bunker prices and foreign exchange rates.



A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S initiates demerger and separate listing of Maersk Drilling Holding A/S

In continuation of the announcement on 17 August 2018, the A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S (APMM) Board of Directors has decided to initiate the separation of APMM’s drilling activities through a demerger of APMM. The shares in Maersk Drilling Holding A/S (Maersk Drilling) and its subsidiaries as well as certain other assets and liabilities will be contributed to a new company with the legal name “The Drilling Company of 1972 A/S” (Maersk Drilling Listco) and the shares hereof will be admitted for trading and official listing on Nasdaq Copenhagen A/S (Nasdaq Copenhagen).



Following the anticipated signing and publication of statutory demerger documents on 4 March 2019, the Board of Directors of APMM intends to propose the demerger for approval by the shareholders at the APMM Annual General Meeting on 2 April 2019. Subject to such approval, the shares in Maersk Drilling Listco will be distributed to APMM shareholders, who in addition to their shareholding in APMM will become shareholders in Maersk Drilling Listco. The anticipated first day of trading for the shares of Maersk Drilling Listco on Nasdaq Copenhagen is on 4 April 2019.



The APMM Board of Directors intends to propose a single share class structure for Maersk Drilling Listco with shares in Maersk Drilling Listco being distributed to the APMM shareholders on a pro-rata basis based on the nominal value of the shares in APMM. Shareholders will receive one share in Maersk Drilling Listco per nominal APMM DKK 500 share and two shares in Maersk Drilling Listco per nominal APMM DKK 1,000 share. The demerger and distribution of the Maersk Drilling Listco shares will be tax-exempt for Danish tax purposes.



A.P. Møller Holding A/S, who holds around 41.5% of the shares in APMM, has agreed to a 360-days lockup of their shareholding in Maersk Drilling Listco, subject to certain customary exemptions.



The Executive Management team of Maersk Drilling consists of CEO Jørn Madsen and CFO Jesper Ridder Olsen, who will also serve as Executive Management team in the future listed company. The Board of Directors of Maersk Drilling consists of Chairman Claus V. Hemmingsen, Vice Chairman Robert M. Uggla, Kathleen McAllister, Robert Routs, Martin N. Larsen and Mads D. Winther. The Board of Directors, except from Mads D. Winther, will be proposed as members of the Board of Directors in the future listed company. Two employee representatives are expected to be elected in March 2019 for a term of four years and join the Board of Directors upon completion of the demerger.


物流施設内の人材確保・雇用定着支援に向けて 定着支援に特化したテガラミルがプロロジスと業務提携

従業員定着支援アプリ「テガラみる」を手掛け、人材ビジネス企業や飲食・サービス、小売流通チェーンなどへの従業員定着支援及び人事コンサルティングサービスを提供する株式会社テガラミル(本社:東京都千代田区、代表取締役:上林 時久、以下 テガラミル)は、物流不動産の所有・運営・開発のリーディング・グローバル企業であるプロロジス(日本本社:東京都千代田区丸の内、以下 プロロジス)と業務提携契約を締結いたしました。

■業務提携の背景・目的

昨今、人材不足による採用難や人件費増大があらゆる企業において問題視されています。外食・運輸業界の非正規雇用者を対象とした調査では、約55%が半年以内に離職するという調査結果*もあり、プロロジスのカスタマーにとっても、物流施設内で働く人材の離職防止・定着が課題となっていました。

プロロジスはこれまでにも、入居企業が採用するパート・アルバイトスタッフの確保に焦点を当てたカスタマーサポートを行ってきておりましたが、今後は人材の確保のみならず、『定着』が一層課題になると考え、定着支援に特化したテガラミルとの業務提携に至りました。提携により、雇用後の『定着』課題を担うことで、結果として人材不足問題解消へと導きます。

■業務提携の内容・今後の展開

プロロジスが運営する物流施設への入居企業(=カスタマー)へ「テガラみる」をご導入いただき、カスタマーへの情報提供を目的とした人材定着・離職防止に関するセミナーの開催等を予定しています。さらに、その後の展開として、カスタマー、テガラミル、プロロジスの三者が協働し、カスタマーが雇用するアルバイト・パート従業員の定着率や、就労意欲等のデータ収集・分析などの取り組みを検討しています。

プロロジスは現在、世界で約3,700棟の物流施設を運営し、5,100社のカスタマーが利用しています。これらの施設で蓄積したビッグデータと、テガラミルとの連携によって得られるデータを活用することで、カスタマーへのさらなる価値提供へとつなげてまいります。

<具体的な取り組み>
●人材確保・定着のための、周辺雇用・採用マーケットついて、従来以上に詳細な分析データの提供
