East-west unit to boost Maersk Line's profit

Under the management of Klaus Rud Sejling, Maersk Line has established an internal organization for all the carriers east and westbound services, corresponding to more than 40 percent of the company's combined fleet.

In early 2014 Maersk Line established a new internal organization that, for the first time ever, gathers all the carrier's east and westbound services - corresponding to more than 40 percent of Maersk Line's combined fleet - into one unit.

Klaus Rud Sejling - whose background includes senior positions in the Maersk Group, most recently as CCO/COO at Maersk Tankers from 2011 to 2014 - was brought in to head the east-west unit in Copenhagen, with the clear goal of making these services more profitable. The services have delivered poor results for far too many years on the so-called mature trades, as these trades have suffered from low growth while also having been characterized by overcapacity for a prolonged period of time.
