"Well, I'm also pleased that things are going better for A.P. Moeller-Maersk, and that they are working on many important initiatives, not least the digital elements. But one should not forget that container shipping is a cyclical industry, and that Maersk is far from done with its work to build up a strong logistics business. The company is still in an early stage. The mood of analysts and the media tends to fluctuate more or less in tune with freight rates. We take a more long-term view," Uggla tells Børsen.
