Hapag-Lloyd announced that Stuart Sandlin will replace Uffe Ostergaard as president of Hapag-Lloyd's Region North America.


Sandlin, who is currently senior vice president (SVP) of sales for the United States, will assume his new position on January 1st 2023, as Ostergaard will take over another management position outside of Hapag-Lloyd also in the US.


Hapag-Lloyd noted that Sandlin joined the company in 2001 as a sales executive in Atlanta, Georgia, and he has held several management positions in the US and Germany.


In 2015, he left Hapag-Lloyd to become President of North America for the United Arab Shipping Company (UASC). When Hapag-Lloyd acquired UASC in 2017, Stuart returned to the company and assumed his current position as SVP Area United States.


"We are very pleased that Stuart, who is an outstanding logistics professional, will be succeeding Uffe. With Stuart's leadership experience and his vast commercial understanding, we will have a strong foundation for managing one of our most traditional key markets, but also for further growth in North America," said Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd.


Jansen then thanked Ostergaard for his "enormous contribution" to the shipping line.


"We thank him for his passionate work for our company – not least for completing the consolidation of our USA-based operations in Atlanta. We wish him the very best and lots of success in his new role," the Hapag-Lloyd chief added.
