Maersk-Blackbuck to help digitise Indian export-import containerised trucking market

Maersk partnered with BlackBuck to provide an online marketplace for containerised trucking in EXIM logistics in India. The Indian government has set ambitions to reduce logistics cost from 14 per cent of the GDP to less than 9 per cent by 2022. The new platform will be owned and operated by BlackBuck with Maersk supporting BlackBuck to develop compelling industry-specific solutions. The neutral platform will be open to the whole industry and will empower sustainable growth and efficiency by reducing touchpoints in the supply chain; thereby improving customer experience, matching demand-supply through the year and providing consistency in service delivery through real-time visibility and control.
