Damco gets new head in reshuffle

Klaus Rud Sejling, the current head of East West trades for Maersk Line, will become CEO of Maersk freight forwarding operation Damco with effect from 1 October.
The current Damco CEO, Hanne Sørensen, has decided to leave the Maersk Group.
Sejling has previous experience of working in Maersk Logistics, still a part of Maersk but now called Damco.
Earlier this month (September), Danish maritime giant AP Moller-Maersk (APMM) announced a strategic review of its business that will see its Damco logistics and forwarding arm placed within a newly created Transport & Logistics division.
Damco, which handled 180,000 tonnes of airfreight in 2015, will be in the same division as the world’s number one container carrier, Maersk Line, the group’s box port arm APM Terminals, towage and sea support specialist Svitzer and ocean freight reefer box manufacturer Maersk Container Industry.
Sejling enthused: “I am thrilled to join Damco at such an exciting time, to continue to drive growth and leverage synergies across the Transport and Logistics division.”
