Cogoport Welcomes Another Passionate Team Member!
Creating a global community bringing the best opportunities to all Cogoport users and Achieving sustainable efficiencies
Cogoport accelerates the creation of value in global supply chains, fundamentally transforming how users engage, leveraging transparency and efficiency, as witnessed by a rapidly growing number of platform users.
Customer First, Always
Our technology team continues to build a world-class customer experience, and in this post, I would like to introduce our latest team addition, Flemming Frost, a business veteran whose experience will support and complement our tech-savvy product- and operations teams.
With more than 35 years of business experience from the transport and logistics industry, earned in senior positions during three decades at Maersk / Damco (Copenhagen, Shanghai and The Hague), and more recently at Tesla (Silicon Valley), Flemming is well positioned to make Cogoport more customer centric, listening to feedback, not only through customers’ behaviour on the platform, but also engaging face-to-face. This is critical to our continued innovation and ambition to be inclusive.
Flemming highlights: “I am excited to join Cogoport and see great opportunities to further the mission in areas like:
· Creating a global community bringing the best opportunities to all Cogoport users
· Achieving sustainable efficiencies through deep integration
· Unlocking value by innovating and automating end-to-end processes
· Enabling data-driven market- and performance transparency.”
The Only Way is Up
Cogoport is accelerating the global growth, and Flemming’s experience in managing, developing, and improving complex logistics operations and turning suppliers into partners will make a difference to all Cogoport users. As Flemming sums it up:
“For all users, Cogoport a single, independent platform across transport providers, a one-stop shop where shippers have full visibility of available options and all their shipments, a platform on which they efficiently and quickly can book containers”, adding: “Carriers get real-time visibility of demand, a very low acquisition cost, especially for small and medium-sized customers, as well as a lower cost to operate such business. Combined, this enables carriers to optimize their positioning in each trade.”
Reflecting back on his years in the industry, Flemming adds:
“I wish I had this platform at my disposal for the past 35 years!”.
Naturally, we won’t argue with him.
Welcome on Board
In short, I’m happy to announce that Flemming Frost is our new President of Supplier Relations & International Growth. He will work to further develop our partnerships with carriers and other suppliers, and to further our mission to simplify freight.
