Rex Jackson

APM Terminals has promoted current chief operating officer at its Tangier terminal, Rex Jackson (above), to the role of APM Terminals’ head of global operations, replacing Henrik Kristensen, who has moved to the position of managing director of APM Terminals Port Elizabeth.

“With his first-hand experience in operations, Rex will build on our need and plan to standardise core operational processes and systems,” said Jack Craig, APM Terminals interim chief operations officer.

“In his new role, Rex will focus on building a global team that will help implement APMT’s operational approach across our portfolio of terminals.

“This will allow us to further develop the operations performance management system and create value through our global footprint – all with a strong focus on serving our customers’ needs,” he added.

Mr Jackson, who has worked for the AP Moller-Maersk group for 23 years, will continue to be based at Tangier, where the company plans to accelerate its R&D activities by establishing an operations centre of excellence, “which will focus on continuous improvement, labour excellence, standardising IT processes and applications”.
