DSV Panalpina has signed a strategic partnership agreement with wind turbine manufacturer Vestas. DSV Panalpina has signed an important logistics contract with Vestas for the implementation and management of general freight transport and special projects. The partnership aims to simplify Vestas` global transport structure and help the company grow its business efficiently, according to DSV Panalpina. We invite you to learn more about Vestas by visiting our website at www.vestas.com and following us on our social media channels: For DSV, the deal significantly increases the portfolio. As one of the world`s largest wind turbine manufacturers, Vestas records approximately 500,000 incoming shipments per year and uses more than 900 vessels per year. The agreement with Vestas is not expected to have a significant impact on DSV Panalpina`s operating profit or cash flow in 2020. The agreement also includes a mutual commitment to reduce and eliminate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from transport and logistics, in line with Vestas` previously announced commitment to become a carbon neutral company by 2030. The two companies are now limiting the scope of the major transport contract signed at the beginning of last year. DSV CEO Panalpina refuses to comment on the economic importance, which also dispels the idea that one of the parties was dissatisfied with the cooperation. In January 2020, the logistics group DSV Panalpina and the wind equipment manufacturer Vestas signed a major contract, a strategic partnership, the first being under contract for all general freight for the projects of the second for a period of three years.
Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, Chief Operating Officer of Vestas, said: “The demand for sustainable energy is stronger than ever and in the face of an increasingly challenging business environment, we are delighted to be working with Maersk in container transport. By partnering with Maersk, we can further accelerate the deployment of wind energy and protect profitability while working together to develop solutions that can make our supply chain more sustainable. We want to create a sustainable, resilient and predictable supply chain and, by partnering with a global leader like Maersk, we are strengthening our supply chain, our transportation partnership and creating opportunities to improve sustainability.

The partnership with DSV Panalpina is an excellent example of our intention to enter into further close and mutually beneficial partnerships throughout our value chain and to improve our operational reach as well as our sustainability efficiency and performance.
