Maersk and Danske Bank in digi-partnership
APM President Jim Hagemann Snabe
A.P. Møller - Maersk has joined forces with Danske Bank working on a new payment solution, to be developed jointly under the name of Gatetu, the newspaper Børsen wrote. It is a part of APM President Jim Hagemann Snabe's strategy to establish partnerships with digital front runners.
The cooperation, which is still in its initial phase, will develop new solutions within the payment area, which can be used across both parties' digital platforms.
And according to an expert, cooperation between the parties is a good idea:
"In order to meet increased competition from, for example, Amazon joining shipping, Maersk needs to get closer to customers and offer services broken down into a single package, from a to b, rather than operating at container level," says Preben Mejer, director of the Radr-Lab Knowledge Center, According to Børsen.
A.P. Møller - Maersk, with Jim Hagemann Snabe at the helm, has a strategy to establish partnerships with digital frontrunners, and Danske Bank has proven that "they are the leaders in the development of digital payment solutions," says press head of A.P. Møller - Maersk, Signe Wagner to Børsen.
