Deringer Logistics will kick-off the quickly approaching 2020 with a new Director of Transportation.
Mr. Michael Hejlesen will oversee Deringer’s international transportation initiatives including partnership recruiting and retention, key carrier contracts and rates, and advancement of import and export freight forwarding on the collaborative executive leadership team, according to the announcement earlier this week.
“Michael’s fresh outlook, passion for building lasting partnerships, and interest in finding creative solutions are a great fit,” said Deringer’s Chief Administrative Officer, Sandy Mayotte. “Our transportation solutions have been growing, and Michael’s vast experience in freight forwarding will help us to continue to meet clients’ needs, exceed their expectations, and create greater momentum.”
Mr. Hejlesen – who speaks both English and Danish, brings with him more than two decades of experience in logistics. More recently, he served as the Global Head of Ocean LCL for an international forwarder and carrier. He earned his National and International Business Degree at Mariagerfjord Business School in Denmark, which aided in his successful career in developing new trade lanes and carrier contracts around the world.
His experiences in developing air/ocean and domestic freight forwarding programs, procurement of carrier contracts, crafting market strategies and engaging with customers, and supporting LCL and FCL freight growth will ultimately support Deringer in the new year and continue its position as a leading international supply chain solutions provider.
