Maersk launches air freight gateway in Miami to serve U.S., Asia, and Latin America market

A.P. Moller – Maersk expanded its air freight operations footprint with the April activation of a full-service, in-transit gateway solution in Miami.

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.

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

The new gateway, modeled after operations in Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles, will focus on transhipping European and Asian cargo via Miami to Latin America with 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.

Brent Mayhew, Regional Head of Air Freight for North America: “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 said: “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.”
