Samskip said that Siedentopf is a “high-profile breakbulk professional”, having held roles at some of the sector’s biggest names, including freight forwarder Panalpina, which later became DSV Panalpina.

Ásbjörn Gíslason, Samskip deputy group ceo, commented: “Appointing Jens to lead our breakbulk projects has been the next logical step in our realigned strategy and brings additional impetus to a significant growth target where Samskip has an established reputation.

“We are demonstrating our intent to give the European breakbulk sector more focus than ever before: whether it is heavy lift, steel, project cargo, wood, ro-ro cargo or automotive…”
