Anja Roennfeldt
SVP Global Ocean Freight Trade Lane Management



Coming from a container line, Anja started her Ocean activities as a Trade Manager in Schenker Asia Pacific back in 2000. Seven years later she took over the Head of Ocean position for the Region APAC before she moved into the Global FCL position for Global Ocean Freight in Hamburg in 2012, now Global Trade Management. 

Tasks in Global Trade Management are centered around procurement and carrier relationship management, including business development activities. Married with two teenage sons, Anja still finds time to engage against single use plastic and toxic pollution on our oceans (#eXXpedition)
