Last month saw A.P. Moller – Maersk open its first air freight gateway in Miami. The 8,000 m² facility is staffed entirely by in-house Maersk Air Freight forwarding professionals, and delivers full-service, in-transit service solutions. It is also fully certified both as a U.S. Customs bonded Container Freight Station (CFS) and a Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF). Thus, best equipped to serve the U.S., Asia, and Latin America markets. “This new air freight facility underscores Maersk’s commitment to providing seamless and competitive connectivity to major Latin American markets. The Miami gateway will serve as a strategic node in Maersk’s global air freight network.” Maersk has modeled its Miami gateway on its other operations in Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The new facility has been created with a focus on transshipping European and Asian cargo via Miami to Latin America, offering competitive connectivity on freighter and passenger capacity. It will support the North American export market to Latin America and the Asian market that serves the Latin American supply chain via cost competitive U.S. routes. In total, Maersk’s air freight portfolio offers 70,000 airport pairings across more than 90 countries around the globe.

John Wetherell, Global Head of Air Freight Forwarding at Maersk, said: “Our Miami expansion is a vital and strategic addition to our global gateway network, providing connectivity from Asia, Europe, and the U.S. to Latin America.”

Brent Mayhew, Regional Head of Air Freight for North America, stated: “Adding to our global gateway network, this addition in Miami provides our customers with substantial added value, leveraging structured routing within a gateway environment. This includes seamless truck connectivity through our North American station network, ensuring efficient and reliable integrated logistics solutions.”

Fabio Acerbi, Regional Head of Air Freight for Latin America, commented: “Our Miami Gateway offers an alternative routing option that can provide predictable transit times from our global network, improving connectivity, flexibility, and reliability. It supports the North American and Asian export market, opening new possibilities for our customers in Latin America.”
