Singapore: Maersk-linked logistics provider Damco has appointed Thomas Knudsen as regional head of its Asia business.
“The diversity of markets and customer needs in Asia create vast opportunities for Damco to partner with stakeholders in terms of supply chain management and freight forwarding. For example we anticipate growth of sourcing activities in Southeast Asia with the increased shift of manufacturing out of China, and regional Free Trade Agreements are also opening up new, exciting opportunities for logistics players like us,” said Knudsen.â€¨
Prior to his new role, Knudsen was the Asia Pacific regional ceo for Maersk Line. Marc Gijsbrecht, Maersk Line’s regional chief executive for West Central Asia has taken on Knudsen’s role in an interim basis. A permanent replacement will be announced at the beginning of 2015. [01/07/14]
