The 560,000-square-foot Integrated Logistics Park at Port Qasim in Pakistan is officially opened by A.P. Moller-Maersk.
With a total footprint of more than 1.3 million square feet, the new facility elevates Maersk to the position of the largest logistics and warehousing provider in the nation thanks to its six purpose-built sheds across seven cities.
A.P. Moller-Maersk (Maersk), a company that specializes in integrated logistics, today opened its new Integrated Logistics Park in Port Qasim, Pakistan. His Excellency Jakob Linulf, the Danish Ambassador to Pakistan, the Honorable Chairman of Port Qasim, Rear Admiral (R) Syed Hasan Nasir Shah HI(M), Hasan Faraz, the Managing Director of Maersk Pakistan, the Maersk Pakistan leadership team, and executives from Pakistan’s top companies were all present at the inauguration.
Qasim Port in Pakistan
The COVID-19 pandemic affected economies all over the world, put an end to the majority of lives, and disrupted the world’s supply chains. However, the transportation of goods continued throughout the world, and all the supplies needed to combat the pandemic continued to move. This was made possible by the shipping and logistics industries’ incredible operational resiliency during the most trying circumstances. Despite the closing of international borders, ships continued to sail, ports continued to operate, warehouses remained open, and cargo continued to move.
For importers and exporters during this time, Maersk’s integrated logistics solutions generated maximum value. The cargo of customers was kept in motion by Maersk’s end-to-end solutions. Maersk’s position was especially bolstered by the warehousing facilities, which allowed it to store products that were in low demand and slowed supply chains when necessary. This helped to boost customers’ confidence in Maersk’s adaptability, dedication, and capacity to respond quickly and effectively to changes in end-user behavior.
Based on this context, Maersk Pakistan made the audacious choice to invest in an integrated logistics park at Port Qasim that would serve as a warehouse and include a consolidation and fulfillment center and cold storage. After purchasing a 26-acre plot of land, Maersk Pakistan carefully planned and built a six-shed facility with a 560,000-square-foot footprint that will address all of its clients’ needs in a single location.

The storage needs of cargo from the retail and lifestyle, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), automotive, and technology sectors will be met by this facility. The Integrated Logistics Park, which is part of Port Qasim, will be the ideal warehouse location for customers to manage their import and export cargo with the least amount of waiting time while connecting to and from vessels.
Modern warehouse management systems will be provided at the Maersk Integrated Logistics Park. Customers will experience fewer handovers of their cargo with Maersk handling the movement of cargo, with ocean transportation on one side and landside transportation on the other side of the warehouse, leading to higher efficiencies, quicker turnaround times, deeper visibility, and better control over the cargo movement. Supply chains will be more predictable as a result of everything.
Our goal at Maersk is to integrate the world in order to improve everyone’s quality of life. We aim to connect and streamline the supply chains for Pakistan’s importers, exporters, and traders with the help of our cutting-edge Integrated Logistics Park.
The managing director of Maersk Pakistan made a statement at the facility’s opening.
“I am proud of this major investment in Pakistan, and it is a crucial component of the logistics infrastructure,” he continued. It is also appropriate to acknowledge the unwavering support from our customers, with whom we were able to have fruitful discussions that assisted us in developing a solution that adds value to their supply chains.
Pakistan has a lot of room to grow and offers plenty of opportunities for trade to thrive. Despite the many difficulties currently faced, Maersk has been a valuable partner for Pakistani traders.

Maersk’s decision to invest in a sizable facility like the one that was inaugurated today in Port Qasim “speaks volumes of the potential that is out there to be harnessed.”
