From the otherwise ordinary office on the west side of Blue Water Shipping’s light, spacious, and glass-covered headquarters in Denmark’s offshore capital, Esbjerg, Kim Hedegaard Sørensen has a magnificent view from the edge of a port dock and out beyond, out across the North Sea. This is where Blue Water Shipping gets a big part of its rapidly growing revenue as logistics operator for customers in the growing oil-, gas-, and offshore windmill industries.
In the coming years, Kim Hedegaard Sørensen, whose background includes 17 years of schooling in A.P. Moeller-Maersk, Maersk Line, and logistics unit Damco, will need to look even further beyond the North Sea when eyeing Blue Water Shipping’s future growth markets. In particular, he’ll have to look out the other side of the company’s headquarters, East, toward Asia.
