Baar, Switzerland 13 February, 2019 - CEVA Logistics has strengthened its ocean freight team with the appointment of Claus Svane Schmidt as Head of Less than Container Load (LCL) Product. Previously Managing Director of the company's North Asia cluster, he will commence his new role on 1 March, 2019.
CEVA has identified LCL as a key product for development in the coming months and Schmidt's extensive experience in the logistics industry makes him ideally qualified to take on this newly created role.
Claus Schmidt joined CEVA in early 2018 following a wide-ranging career with a number of leading industry players including senior positions in Scandinavia, Dubai, Sydney and Hong Kong. For the last year, he was based in the Philippines.
In his new role, Schmidt will have full responsibility for all LCL products within CEVA and he will seek to drive further innovation across both existing and new markets. This will include digitization of the LCL product to ensure constant yield improvement.
"This is an exciting new challenge with tremendous potential for growing what is already a very strong service offering. There is untapped potential especially utilizing our worldwide capabilities in eCommerce and our own operations where new lanes can be brought on stream," says Schmidt.
