Maersk boss predicts further consolidation

Maersk Line is concentrating on organic growth.

AP MOLLER-Maersk chief executive Nils Andersen is forecasting further rationalisation in the container shipping industry in the coming years, with smaller lines struggling to compete against the big global players. Although Maersk Line is concentrating on organic growth, having just signed a $1.9bn deal for a series of 18,000 teu vessels, Mr Andersen said he expects to see consolidation over the long-term as weaker operators find themselves marginalised. “We believe the world will develop in a way where smaller players will find it increasingly difficult to put their mark on the industry,” Mr Andersen said shortly after reporting that the group had made record profits in 2010 as its container shipping division powered back into the black. “Some consolidation will happen, although whether through takeovers, or because more marginal players cannot find investors to back their plans, I don’t know.” Over the years, the Danish group has been one of the most active players in the container shipping consolidation process, having bought Safmarine, Sea-Land and finally P&O Nedlloyd in 2005 to confirm its position as the world largest operator in terms of fleet capacity. AP Moller-Maersk executives also spoke about the need for greater consolidation during the market collapse of 2009, while making it clear that the company was not actively looking for any acquisition opportunities. Many industry observers had expected to see some merger or…...

A. P. Møller – Maersk Group (Maersk); Human Resource Development

...Introduction My 48 hour exam project is a case study of A. P. Møller – Maersk Group (Maersk); the objective of my assignment is to elaborate on Maersk`s talent management challenge, focused on development. Furthermore I will describe the cosmos of Maersk learning and competence development and provide alternative angles of conducting in this cosmos, in accordance with my own perspective. My ontological standpoint for this exam is constructivism (Olsen & Pedersen, 2005). The reality perceived is therefore not objective but created, or constructed, by man’s interpretation. This does not signify that I will avoid handling theories that are ontological objectivistic in order to discuss and compliment the various learning and competence development challenges of Maersk; but rather discuss the objective views and theories, and its contrasts to my standpoint. Organizational Change at Maersk Maersk have developed from a very standardized, family run company with certain and specific ways of running things; to a worldwide organization that have had to change in order to keep up with the time and trends. The major change in Maersk way of dealing with their learning and competence development occurred in 2008; Maersk had before 2008 a very objective approach to learning which were aimed towards trainees (Case, Page 7). In 2008 the People Strategy Sessions (PSS) is created and a shift towards a more individual development process has begun. PSS is developed to identify......

...An article (abbreviated art) is a word (or prefix or suffix) that is with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. Articles specify the grammatical definiteness of the noun, in some languages extending to volume or numerical scope. The articles in the English language are the and a/an, and (in some contexts) some. 'An' and 'a' are modern forms of the Old English 'an', which in Anglian dialects was the number 'one' (compare 'on', in Saxon dialects) and survived into Modern Scots as the number 'ane'. Both 'on' (respelled 'one' by the Normans) and 'an' survived into Modern English, with 'one' used as the number and 'an' ('a', before nouns that begin with a consonant sound) as an indefinite article. Traditionally in English, an article is usually considered to be a type of adjective. In some languages, articles are a special part of speech, which cannot easily be combined with other parts of speech. It is also possible for articles to be part of another part of speech category such as a determiner, an English part of speech category that combines articles and demonstratives (such as 'this' and 'that'). In languages that employ articles, every common noun, with some exceptions, is expressed with a certain definiteness (e.g., definite or indefinite), just as many languages express every noun with a certain grammatical number (e.g., singular or plural). Every noun must be accompanied by the article, if any, corresponding to its definiteness, and the lack of...

...External and Internal Environments (Maersk) Generia Simmons BUS 499 Capstone Professor Clayton Sinclair May 5, 2013 Choose the two (2) segments of the general environment that would rank highest in their influence on the corporation you chose. Assess how these segments affect the corporation you chose and the industry in which it operates. The two segments of the general environment that would have major influence over Maersk would be technological segment and physical environment segment. I chose physical environment segment because Maersk realizes the physical changes that they’ll have to make concerning the physical environment. The need to shift to a low carbon economy is what society and businesses need to focus on due to climate change. Climate changes are the key environmental issue in the Maersk group. It’s possible that this is an issue for all shipping companies and all locomotives as well. The Maersk Group has accomplished an 8% improvement in CO2 efficiency since 2010. In 2007, Maersk oil saw a reduction of 86% in Co2; also in 2007 Maersk line saw a 25% CO2 reduction per container. The improvements are mainly due to Maersk Line's advancement in energy efficiency (Maersk.com). Maersk set a target goal for (2010-2020) to reduce CO2 by 20%. The technological segment of Maersk encompasses many different aspects. For the shipping industry, mobile communication offers the chance to employ new and efficient ways of addressing fleet management, improving......

...Memantine is the second type of drug-based treatment also one effective treatment for the Alzhermeir’s disease. Memantine can also be used to protect brain cells from damage caused by glutamate, a chemical messenger. Namenda is an example of a Memantine drug treatment was the first drug approved by FDA to treat the symptoms of moderate to severe Alzhermeir’s disease. For many years, some European countries use this drug in treating moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease ( Farlow MR, et al. 2003 ). It was functioning as a barrier to protect the brain's nerve cells against excess amounts of glutamate, a messenger chemical released in large amounts by the cells that had been damaged by Alzheimer's. American Health Assistance Foundation, in an article published in 2011 states that "When the glutamate attached to the cell surface "docking sites" called N-methyl-D aspartate (NMDA) receptor, calcium can flow freely into cells, which can lead to cell degeneration. Namenda may prevent this destructive sequence by adjusting the activity of glutamate". Memantine also has been proven to improve memory such as Alzhermeir's disease and it can be used alone or with other Alzheimer’s disease treatments such as Donepezil (Aricept) that was the only Cholinesterase Inhibitor approved to treat all stages of Alzheimer’s disease, including moderate to severe. There is some evidence when some of patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s who are taking a Cholinesterase Inhibitor might get benefit......

...What is a Scholarly Article? Meriam Library  California State University, Chico Many instructors at the college level require that you use scholarly articles as sources when writing a research paper. Scholarly or peer-reviewed articles are written by experts in academic or professional fields. They are excellent sources for finding out what has been studied or researched on a topic as well as to find bibliographies that point to other relevant sources of information. How can you determine if your article is scholarly and/or peer reviewed? 1. Consult the chart. The chart on the back lists the general criteria for determining what type of periodical article you have. Keep in mind that some articles do not meet all the criteria. When in doubt, consult a Reference Librarian or your instructor. 2. Limit your database search to academic, scholarly, or peer reviewed journals. Many databases allow you to limit your search to academic, scholarly, or peer reviewed journals (terminology varies between databases). Although limiting provides a preliminary filter, not all articles within a scholarly journal are scholarly, so you will need to evaluate each article individually against the criteria in the chart. 3. Ask a Librarian We can help you find a scholarly article or determine whether an article you have is scholarly.

...Can the Brilliant Jerk Be Managed Effectively? By James Haskett JAMES HESKETT James Heskett is a Baker Foundation Professor, Emeritus, at Harvard Business School. ORIGINAL ARTICLE The annoying employee who makes his numbers while alienating those around him will gain needed attention in the coming months with at least one book about to be published on the subject. This is an age-old problem that most managers handle badly. You know the story by now. It concerns high-performing employees, known by some as "stars" and by others as "destructive heroes" or "brilliant jerks," those who generate a great deal of business while creating problems for colleagues. They are demanding to the point of being abusive, they make promises to clients that their colleagues cannot meet, they take too much credit for success, and they generally are unable to adhere to commonly shared values of members of the organization. The management response to this kind of situation is too often ineffective. By their own admission, their managers are reluctant to rock the boat as long as the numbers continue to be good. In doing so, they underestimate the costs to the organization, including the loss of other talent. And when they do act, they do so much too slowly, often after most of the damage has been done. Jack Welch has written about the phenomenon of what he calls "jerks" or "bullies" from his own experience. At GE they were referred to as a "Type 4" manager, "the person who delivers on......

...and none of these assignments will be marked. Furthermore, these students may be penalised or subjected to University disciplinary proceedings. PLAGIARISM: VERY IMPORTANT! While you are strongly encouraged to become familiar with a broad range of ideas, be very vigilant regarding plagiarism. Any idea or argument that you incorporate in your essays, if drawn from elsewhere, must be clearly attributed to its source (and this, very importantly, includes Internet sources). Remember that plagiarism is a serious offence and, while often committed inadvertently, will result in zero per cent being awarded for submitted work. Please read the detailed explanation given below very carefully: * If you copy something out of a book, an article, a website or another document without acknowledging its source, and pass it off as your own, that constitutes plagiarism. In effect, you are stealing something that belongs to someone else, dishonestly pretending that it is your own. * If you paraphrase material (i.e. change the wording slightly) or use ideas or a line of argument without acknowledging the original source, this also constitutes plagiarism and the same severe penalty will apply. * It is not enough to cite sources in the bibliography at the end of your essay. You must refer to these in the body of your essay, in brackets, next to every statement that is based on borrowed formulations or ideas. * The Disciplinary Code for Students (2004) is......

...9 -7 1 2 -4 4 9 REV: JUNE 1, 2012 FOREST L. REINHARDT RAMON CASADESUS-MASANELL FREDERIK NELLEMANN Maersk Line and the Future of Container Shipping There is a difference between just moving a container and moving it in the most sustainable, easy, and reliable way. And that difference is worth something to our customers. — Morten Engelstoft, Chief Operating Officer, Maersk Line, 2012 It was a cold February afternoon in 2012 as Søren Skou looked out the window of his office across the Copenhagen waterfront. Skou had just recently been promoted to become CEO of Maersk Line, the world’s largest container shipping company, and the flagship company of the Danish conglomerate A.P. Moller-Maersk Group. He was taking the reins at a difficult time: the sluggish global economy had severely depressed container rates, while fuel prices were still at record levels. On some trade routes, the company—like its competitors—wasn’t even meeting the costs of deploying its large and expensive container ships. Skou was confident that the company would pull through. After all, it had recently completed a successful turnaround following the Maersk Line’s first ever annual loss in 2009 and the Group benefited from a diverse holding of activities, which included an oil and gas business. However, Skou needed to assess whether Maersk Line was headed in the right direction, both to be able to compete in this slower market but also once the economy, and global trade, picked up. In......

...be taken over by his “superego” and eventually taken back over by his “ego.” Our journey starts with the young man, the narrator, telling us his story. The young man is a caretaker of an old man who is really old and has a diseased eye. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” the young man starts out by loving the old man very deeply. He takes care of his every need, until one day “ the old man’s eye fell upon him and his blood ran cold”(Poe 2). The young man then turned to his narcissistic ways and it changed the way he felt about the old man whom “he loved so dearly” (Poe 1). In “ Explanation of: ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ by Edgar Alan Poe,” which was rewritten by an unknown author, it explains how the narrator is a “paranoid schizophrenic”(pg. 1). The article explains how Edgar Alan Poe was obsessed with “death, madness, and troubled human relationships” (pg. 1). The narrator is definitely a man caught between normality and psychopath. Further more the young man goes on to “spy on the old man every night for a week” (Poe 3). In doing this, the young man is letting his “id” take over his thoughts and actions. Chua brings up a good point in “An overview of ‘The Tell-Tale Heart,” stating that the “old man and the young man are one in the same person” (Chua 2). This is a good point because the young man is “spying on the old man for a week, opening the door each night a little at a time” (Poe 5). This brings a little light to the situation explaining why the old man does not catch the young......

Is not the essence of the arbitration process an effort to avoid the procedural complexities that make litigation comparatively slow and costly? More than forty years ago, Learned Hand admonished a litigant distressed with the procedural failings of an arbitration proceeding: Arbitration may or may not be a desirable substitute for trials in courts; as to that the parties must decide in each instance. But when they have adopted it, they must be content with its informalities; they may not hedge it about with those procedural limitations which it is precisely its......

...Rebuttal Article Rebuttal Jeff Holliday BCOM/275 Article Rebuttal In a rebuttal to the article “Obama is a great president; we’re just a lousy country, I would like to analyze the reliability, credibility, and validity of the data used by the author, as well as identify any logical fallacies in the argument. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in 2009, when President Obama signed the stimulus package into law, he promised a six percent unemployment rate by this time. Granted, a drop has been seen in the unemployment, but what the author does not seem to realize is the number of Americans who have stopped looking for work. The Department of Labor has reported an unemployment rate of 8.2 for the month of March 2012. The actual unemployment or U-6 rate as of March is hovering at 14.5 percent. Many argue that it has become so easy to gain government benefits, that looking for work is no longer a priority. The President needs to limit benefits to push people to search for work or take jobs that may not be their first choice. Unfortunately, many Americans have become so discouraged with the lack of performance from the current administration that the author has come to this conclusion. The author of this article has a clear bias to what the President has or has not accomplished to date. Fallacies used within the article would include generalizing Americans as lazy and obese. He states the Obama has given Americans all of the tools to succeed, but Americans just......
