Mexico City, Mexico – A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has announced the opening of a new Global Service Centre (GSC) for the Americas Region, based in Mexico City, Mexico, with a dedicated satellite centre in Santos, Brazil.

These new locations will combine talent availability across functions and disciplines in areas such as customer experience, finance, process management, technology, and data/analytics to provide high-quality support and a unique experience to customers. The centres will create over 700 new positions in 2023, with a plan to scale up to 1,300 positions by 2025.

The Maersk GSC plays a critical role in delivering customer outcomes and enables decision-making and prioritization.  In 2022, Maersk witnessed exponential growth in Latin America as part of its strategy to become a global integrator in container logistics. The Americas-based GSC will bring regional expertise to support customers’ growing needs, with English, Spanish, and Portuguese language support, scalable talent availability, and process standardization.

We have consistently prioritized our customers’ and business needs and these new centres allow us to take this ambition even further. The GSC in the Americas will have many exciting opportunities to reshape the way teams within Maersk work together and create success through collaboration beyond boundaries.

The Global Service Centres– an enabler of Maersk’s integrator strategy
Maersk is on a journey to integrate container logistics across all transport modes, partnering with its customers to navigate, simplify and decarbonise their supply chains across a global scope.  As a result, Maersk increasingly offers integrated logistics solutions to customers beyond its ocean offering, developing a solid logistics footprint and providing complete end-to-end services based on specific customer demands.

As part of our transformational journey to become increasingly customer-centric, nearshoring some of our key customer processes close to where our customers are is another way of ensuring that we speak the same language as them. Alongside, opening our hubs in the thriving cities of Brazil and Mexico filled with a deep culture of service excellence will also provide fascinating opportunities to our America´s talent.
