BIMCO appoints new Chief Shipping Analyst


BIMCO has appointed Niels Rasmussen as its Chief Shipping Analyst who will take up his new role on 3 January 2022.

Most recently Rasmussen was Global Head of Research at Maersk Broker, a role he held for six years focusing on the main shipping segments; dry bulk, tanker, and container. Prior to that, Rasmussen held several different roles at Maersk Line, which took him around the world including postings in Japan, Singapore, and the United States.

“We are delighted that Niels will be heading our shipping market analysis team. BIMCO will continue to publish its quarterly reports about the main shipping segments while increasing our focus on the solutions and impacts of decarbonisation,” says Michael Lund, Deputy Secretary General at BIMCO.

“I am excited to join BIMCO and look forward to contributing to the industry’s understanding of market developments – from supply chain issues to challenges caused by the pandemic. I also look forward to working with the rest of the BIMCO team,” says Rasmussen.
