Copenhagen: The A.P. Moller - Maersk Group today announced the appointment of Henrik Jensen as the new Maersk Line Country Manager for Malaysia and Singapore, and Thomas Lindy Sorensen as the new Maersk Line Country Manager for Thailand.

In their new roles, Jensen and Sorensen will be responsible for customer service, sales and operations for Maersk Line in their respective countries. They will both  will report directly to Jesper Praestensgaard, ceo for Maersk Line Asia-Pacific, who said, "We need to make it easier for our customers to do business with us and I am confident that both Henrik and Thomas will deliver on this. Apart from having a simpler organisational structure, modernisation of the shipping industry holds the key to less complex container shipping. Maersk Line is standardising documentation, data flow and processes across the entire transportation chain. When shippers are able to depend on these standards, container shipping will become easier and more cost-effective."
