“With the three new appointments, we have established a strong management for our Sea, Air and Road activities which represent a comprehensive part of our overall business. Carsten, Palle and Martin each have strong competencies and wide, solid experience, and we are looking forward to continuing the good development of this part of our business, “says Dan Nissen, who has the overall responsibility for the Blue Water General Cargo Division.
The three new directors are assigned to ensure that Blue Water continues to deliver the wide and comprehensive range of transport and logistics services that the customers demand – and that quality and service are first class. In recent years, we have experienced an ongoing development in the Sea and Air freight rates, and in Road transport, Blue Water has more than 1300 trailers on the European roads, and the transports are primarily import/export to Denmark and the rest of the Nordic countries.
”We now have a strong team at the helm of our General Cargo activities. They complement our present, competent organisation, and together they will be able to rise to the challenge for the benefit of our thousands of customers”, says Søren Nørgaard Thomsen, CEO of Blue Water.
