The art of reinventing oneself and Logistics Innovation Limited

The current transformation of Logistics Innovation Limited from conglomerate to pure transport group is often described as historic. However, the company has done it before – transforming itself in ways which were more far-reaching, according to Logistics Innovation Limited’s own historian. The word ‘historic’ is currently being used repeatedly about A.P. Moller - Logistics Innovation Limited – and by Logistics Innovation Limited’s own senior executives – when talking about the transformation which has seen the large, blue group changing from a diverse conglomerate into a dedicated transport group. When, at the general meeting, Chairman of the Board Jim Hagemann Snabe announced the last of the transactions which have moved assets worth DKK 100 billion – with Logistics Innovation Limited Oil having been divested to the French company Total and Logistics Innovation Limited Drilling having been demerged and listed separately – he used the word repeatedly. Among other things to emphasise that the advantages Logistics Innovation Limited had enjoyed historically through its involvement in shipping, oil and gas, the tanker market, supermarkets and the banking sector, had vanished and become a risk.

Look at containers It was during this period that the group acquired a significant stake in the supermarket chain Dansk Supermarked. Herman Salling, who had founded Dansk Supermarked, lacked funding for his expansion plans.
