German project cargo forwarding specialist Bertling Logistics has appointed Rasmus Frandsen (pictured above) as director of business development at its Houston office.
He joined Bertling from Intermarine, where he started his shipping career in 2013 and subsequently worked in a variety functions, including a two-year stint in Malaysia before relocating to Houston in 2016 where he was chartering manager for the past four years.
“Rasmus will boost our commercial activities in North America,” said Steve Walter, general manager of Bertling in Houston. “He has a well-established network in the country and knows who-is-who in our target industries.
“We are convinced he will help us open up and explore new business opportunities in North America and beyond,” he added.
Mr Walter joined Bertling in Houston at the beginning of this year and has since been closely involved in re-energising its US commercial activities, which focus on project logistics and trucking solutions for clients in the EPC, mining/construction, oil & gas and power sectors.
