Freight forwarder ECU Worldwide has appointed Clas Thorell as its global head for LCL product & yield management.
Based in Hong Kong, he will focus on the digitalisation of the business “to create a stronger network of small and medium-sized businesses with a global reach”.
ECU said: “He is known as a strong operating and product management leader who builds teams around a clear strategy. Clas has over two decades’ experience in the ocean freight LCL business, leading growth turnarounds of several businesses.”
Mr Thorell said: “It is a transformative time for ocean freight, with the disruptions and rapidly changing dynamics within the sector.”
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Mark, Debbie and your teams for the great service we have received from ECU Worldwide. Your willingness and availability at all times are highly appreciated to achieve the service we get from yourselves.
Over a period of many years, Diamond Global Logistics have chosen to place business with ECU Worldwide UK. The service given to us by Ian, mark and their colleagues has been exemplary. In our view, ECU have set standards in customer service that other companies can only dream of. We are approached on a frequent basis by ECU’s competitors but no matter what they claim to be able to offer us, we are never convinced as to their abilities to attain the high standards that we seek in our service providers. In these days of rates being seen to be the all-important factor, with service often being an afterthought by many, ECU are a breath of fresh air in the marketplace. The relationship Diamond Global Logistics has with ECU is one that we place great value upon.
ECU Worldwide offers exceptional service at competitive prices and is our first choice for LCL shipments in the industry. Along with its extensive ocean freight service portfolio, they also provide a logistic hub and spoke service for the actual door-to-port service.
