Karsten Kildalh, Regional Managing Director Europe at A.P. Moller – Maersk and Chairman of the Board at KGH, and Lars Börjesson, CEO of KGH.

This autumn, KGH has been a part of A.P. Moller – Maersk for one year. Customs services are an essential part of the supply chain, and the combined strength of the two companies provides seamlessness and global reach to our customers.

Last year, KGH Customs Services and A.P. Moller – Maersk and were proud to announce that they would join forces to further enhance customs capabilities as part of A.P. Moller – Maersk’s supply chain solutions, including end-to-end offerings.

Under the new ownership, KGH has worked together with A.P Moller – Maersk to continue to create efficient and seamless trade flows, solving pain points for their customers in need of integrated solutions and specialist services.

The year has been characterised by strong growth in a turbulent time with many challenges including Covid and Brexit. KGH has grown not only in revenue but also capacity, entering new markets and growing the organisation. The new organisation now consists of 1200 professionals, being a truly leading customs services provider in Europe. With the added capacity, both in terms of manpower and skills, KGH has been able to deliver even more customer value, with even better possibilities to serve customers operating across several markets.

The past year has been extraordinary in many dimensions. And we have achieved a lot. We continue to provide excellent service to new and existing customers, we supported them through brexit, we have joined forces and progressed our digital transformation agenda. I am super-impressed about what we have achieved together and excited about all opportunities we have in growing the business and make our organisation even more professional.  said Lars Börjesson, CEO at KGH.

 

One year after the acquisition, KGH has proven to be the perfect match for Maersk. I am deeply impressed with KGH´s professionalism, management and colleagues. Together, we are a team of more than 1,200 people tirelessly working with customs and delivering a high-quality product to our customers. Together, we have grown our combined business by 30% over the last 12 months. Truly impressive! said Karsten Kildahl, Regional Managing Director Europe at A.P. Moller – Maersk.
