Everyone involved in the global shipping industry experiences the current difficult market conditions and Flemming is used to roll up his sleeves and is motivated by challenging tasks. Monjasa has established a robust business foundation and is now looking to consolidate its market position. I’m confident that Flemming is the right man to take part in this work and will prove a true gain for Monjasa.”
