    Wow, Maersk, Got huge problems once again, in the Executive Ranks. Losing Mr. Hanne B. Sorensen, Is major blow to Maersk, No matter how you look at it. Then Maersk pushed out Mr. Nils S. Anderson, that was another major loss over at Container Line Division, That has not gotten any better either..This is now Second, (2nd) Time A CEO Position has Changed at Damco Division, in little under a year to runs that firm..Mr. Soresen, was smart to leave on his own, Good Luck. Does not look with Four, (4) month of the year left to make drastic changes to a company like Maersk and say, We are splitting the company in two? For What? Your Alliance Partnership with MSC , Is in toilet, that has never made any sense, That like putting VW in a Grayhound, It wont work..MSC and Maersk Executives, Are of different mind set. MSC, does not need Maersk, Maersk needs MSC, for it bottom line. If MSC Executives are Smart, Brake away from Maersk, & Run as fast as you can. MSC, better off by them self they are very conservative, and successful company involved in a lot of different business, that are profitable.
