Customer Testimonial: Port of Aarhus

For this article we asked Lars-Michael Andreasen (head of Customer Coordination Centre at the Port of Aarhus) to share his experience with Ultimate Maritime Logistics.

“AX2012 was no longer supported by Microsoft as of October 2023. For this reason, we were compelled to switch to another system, as we cannot continue with the AX platform since both Finance and Customer Service no longer receive security updates”.

We have partnered with Ultimate Maritime Logistics since 2015. We have a good and close collaboration, and Ultimate has dedicated individuals who act swiftly on our issues. They have a good understanding of the business and can translate technical terms into “customer language”.

The transition from the old system to the cloud went smoothly and on schedule. The smooth progress can be attributed to Ultimate having great knowledge on the process both onsite with us and remotely when necessary. Additionally, Ultimate Maritime Logistics has had a good overview, so development areas that were not part of scope 1 were deprioritized.
