Horizon Lines names VP international services

August 25 - US ocean shipping company, Horizon Lines has named Alherd Kazura to the new position of vice president of international services.

Kazura was previously vice president international planning and development at Horizon. In his new role will take overall responsibility for the line's FSX service, which calls Shanghai, Ningbo, Los Angeles, Oakland and Apra Harbor, Guam.

"Alherd's experience establishing the FSX last year, together with his finance and business development background, makes him well-suited to tackle the challenges of our trans-Pacific operation in a very competitive market environment," said the company's executive vice president, chief operating officer and chief commercial officer, Brian Taylor.

Horizon Lines owns or leases a fleet of 20 U.S.-flag containerships and operates five port terminals linking the continental United States with Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Micronesia, and Puerto Rico. In addition to the 
provision of an express trans-Pacific service between the U.S. West Coast and the ports of Ningbo and Shanghai in China, a company spokesperson confirmed that the line does carry heavy and over-dimensional cargo using flat-racks and other specialised equipment on its vessels calling Hawaii and 
Alaska.
