Maersk Line names president

November 22 - Effective December 1, 2017, the veteran Maersk senior manager, Omar Shamsie (pictured below), will become president of Maersk Line in North America.

In 2018, and specific to Maersk Line, Shamsie's focus will be in accelerating the digital transformation and new innovative technology that can reduce customers' freight management complexity and add greater efficiency to improve the customer experience.
