Sune Thorleifsson has joined global forwarder DSV as director of global sea chartering.

He joins DSV from German carrier SAL Heavy Lift, where he was head of marine projects.

Thorleifsson said that DSV’s chartering team has grown from two people at the start of the year to eight presently. In January, DSV Panalpina signed a deal with Vestas to handle the manufacturer’s general freight and special project transportation. Some of Vestas’ logistics team have moved across to DSV.
