COMEX ARENA BY MAERSK: INTEGRATED LOGISTICS FOR ELECTRONICS
Essential themes for the segment, such as tax, financial and customs issues, were presented in the Comex Arena by Maersk. “Our participation in the largest consumer goods fair in Latin America was essential to highlight how integrated logistics solutions represent opportunities for the sector’s growth”, said Karin Shöner, president of the Grupo Maersk for the East Coast of South America.
Mediated by Alexandre Cecolim, regional director for integrated and technical solutions at Maersk, the panel “Increasing the resilience and flexibility of the supply chain in Brazil” had the participation of Karin Shöner and Marcus Voloch, executive director at Aliança. “We addressed the importance of a more integrated supply chain, to the detriment of a fragmented operation. State-of-the-art logistics solutions, 4PL and SCM, are strategies that can help companies, particularly in the consumer electronics sector, maintain control and visibility of their supply chain,” said Karin.
Choosing a logistics partner is strategic for growing responsibly, he said. “We have solutions that encompass the chain as a whole, with a holistic view. Those at Maersk Lead Logistics in Latin America plan and manage logistical journeys, eliminate the complexity of supply chains, have integrated solutions that provide visibility into all operations and synchronize inbound and outbound flows, simplifying inventory and digitizing processes.”
In sustainability, Maersk intends to accelerate the reduction of polluting gases and zero carbon emissions by 2040 in all its operations and supply chain in the global market. “We have established tangible short-term targets for 2030 to ensure alignment with the Paris Agreement and the methodology of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This translates into a 50% reduction in emissions per container transported in our fleet compared to 2020. In addition, 25% of the volume of containers will be transported with green fuels by 2030”, said Karin.
