Stubkjær will fight Maersk in battle for U. S. ports

Former Maersk shipowner Knud Stubkjær believes that his long and wide-ranging experience in shipping, including the establishing of APM Terminals, has helped get him the position as CEO of American group Carrix, he says to ShippingWatch.

Once you have made the jump from Copenhagen to Hamburg, you might as well move your office to Seattle. And that is what has happened for the former Maersk ship owner and CEO of Maersk Line, Knud Stubkjær, who begins his third day on the job when the sun rises over the American west coast.

He will be competing directly with his former employer on Esplanaden in Copenhagen when he takes charge of one of the biggest privately owned container and logistic companies in the United States – Carrix – which is the parent group of a number of transportation companies. Whether this means that he is now part of the bidding war about the Virginia ports is not clear, as his only comment on the matter is that he has no comment.
