Copenhagen, 7 September 2009 - The A.P. Moller - Maersk Group's
logistics activities start trading as Damco on Monday 7 September 2009.

primary drivers remain our passion for working closely with our
customers and our dedication to reliable, high-quality service delivery.

in the industry is at the centre of what we stand for as Damco" says
Damco is primarily known in the market for the consistency and quality
of their global operations, and have through high growth in the past

leading positions with their supply chain development capabilities, as
well as in the quest to reduce carbon emissions in supply chains.

gives us a much stronger platform to present and deliver our full
service portfolio. We have a strong global coverage, with particular
strengths in emerging markets, and we deliver both single freight
