Maersk Line has announced the new head of its operation in north China.
Anderson Luo will take over the role in Qingdao from Mike Fang on 1 November. Fang moved in July to Shanghai to become head of Maersk Line East Central China.
“North China continues to outperform the market, with solid growth in the past few years despite challenging market conditions,” Luo told IHS Maritime, “and my focus going forward will be to keep that good momentum through a relentless focus on delivering best-in-class products to our customers.”
Luo joined Maersk Line as a Maersk International Shipping education trainee in 1994 and has worked at various locations in China, acquiring broad business experience through various positions in route management, operations and customer service. At present, he is head of customer service for Maersk Line South China.
“Anderson has a proven track record and rich hands-on experience of all aspects of shipping,” said Robbert Van Trooijen, Maersk Line North Asia CEO. “His “skills and background make him uniquely qualified to rise to this challenge.”
Luo, born in 1971, graduated from Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in 1993.
