LCL announced that Hans Christian Jensen will join the USA organization on
November 1, 2005. Jensen has a background in shipping as well as logistics. In the
early 90’s, Hans Christian began working with J. Lauritzen in Copenhagen. Since 1994, he has
worked overseas in Mexico, USA and Brazil, where he held several different positions in
operations, chartering and general management within the J. Lauritzen Group.
In 2001, he joined INTTRA Inc. to be responsible for the successful establishment of INTTRA as
the leading Ocean Industry Portal in the Latin America Region. Most recently, Jensen has
served as the Managing Director & VP, Latin America Region – INTTRA Inc.
Hans Christian will
gradually assume the regional management responsibilities for all of North
America. LCL is currently partnered with Susi Harris in a successful joint venture –
Universal Freight Forwarders, Ltd. – with offices in Seattle, Washington as well as in California
and Florida. Mrs. Harris will continue to work with Hans Christian to develop USA operations
and to offer integrated logistics to the perishable trades in North America and beyond.
CEO, Mr. Ole Schack-Petersen comments that this plan for the future will build on
the success of UFF, over the last 28 years, and will ensure a continued strengthening of customer
and supplier relationships through the years ahead.
Hans Christian will initially be located in Seattle, but expectedly will relocate to southern
California in 2006 to increase LCL’s presence there.
