Maersk has announced its partnership with BlackBuck, India’s largest online marketplace for trucking, to provide an online marketplace for containerised trucking in EXIM logistics in India.
Announcing the collaboration with BlackBuck, Arjun Maharaj, Head of Sales, Maersk South Asia, said, “Our customers are dealing with fragmented vendors with varying service levels of communication, geographical, financial & infrastructural dis-parities resulting in suboptimal supply chains. We have committed our-selves to working with partners who understand these challenges, match our set of values and have expertise in both logistics & technology.”
Speaking about the collaboration with Maersk, Ramasubramaniam B, Co-Founder & COO – Strategic Initiatives said, “At BlackBuck, over the last 4 years, we have developed our robust product & technology that maximises the billable kilometres of a truck, delivering higher realization to the truck owners & driving a low-cost transportation network to the shippers. Our product will add significant value to the EXIM containerised trucking industry in India that has the additional complexity of meeting the timelines of sea freight connections, apart from other regular trucking related challenges. Maersk with their industry specific knowledge and expertise, will help us trans-form this space through digitization.”
