Maersk fires three senior executives from its APMT port unit

APM Terminals, a unit of Danish shipping and oil giant A.P. Møller-Mærsk A/S (MAERSK-A.KO) and the world’s third-biggest port operator, has dismissed three senior executives, a company spokesman said.

“They were asked to leave because they did not follow internal business policies,” Erik Eisenberg, APMT’s vice president for communications, told The Wall Street Journal. He declined to say whether an internal probe has been launched into the matter or give any other details.

Christian Moller Laursen, APMT’s vice president and chief financial officer, was replaced in January, Mr. Eisenberg said. He said Chief Commercial Officer Martin Gaard Christiansen and the head of global project implementation, Michael Lund Hansen, have also been replaced. The three dismissed executives are well-known in the shipping community and held key positions in APMT and the mother company for more than 20 years.
