   Maximilian Rothkopf will succeed Anthony J. Firmin as chief operating officer of Hapag-Lloyd on July 1.
   Rothkopf, 38, will join the company’s executive board on May 1. Firmin, 65, is set to retire on June 30.
   As COO, Rothkopf will have operational responsibility for the global shipping business and advance the implementation of the company’s Strategy 2023.
   Rothkopf has been with McKinsey & Company since 2005. He was made a partner in 2014. As a member of the consulting firm’s travel, transport and logistics team, he has provided advice to large liner shipping companies, airlines and numerous global logistics companies.
   “With Maximilian Rothkopf, we are bringing on board a proven and internationally experienced logistics expert who is familiar with Hapag-Lloyd and has already given the company much strategic advice during his time as a consultant in the past three years,” said Michael Behrendt, chairman of the Hapag-Lloyd AG Supervisory Board.

   “At the same time, we would like to sincerely thank Anthony J. Firmin for his enormous commitment,” Behrendt said. “For more than two decades, he has continuously contributed to the company’s success, such as with his invaluable efforts to implement the two mergers and the IPO during his five years as a member of the executive board.”
   The other members of the executive board of Hapag-Lloyd AG are Chief Executive Officer Rolf Habben Jansen, Chief Financial Officer Nicolás Burr and Chief Personnel and Global Procurement Officer Joachim Schlotfeldt.

The demise of small trucking companies is very similar to the demise of mid-scale farms, and it’s a serious concern especially as owners of these smaller trucking companies age out of the system.

The Alliance’s PN2 offers faster transits from Vietnam to the U.S. than any other container shipping service at 14 days from Haiphong to Tacoma, according to the BlueWater Reporting database.
