Power 25 2021: Christopher Cook, Managing Director of Maersk UAE, Oman, and Qatar, Ranks 11


Cook joined Maersk in the UK in 2002 and had the opportunity to grow through commercial roles across the UK, Africa, and Europe and for the last few years in Dubai, UAE.

While his roles have been commercially orientated, Cook has focused a lot on developing a customer-centric approach to all the products and services being offered in the country.

He said, “We are transforming at Maersk – from being a shipping line to an integrated logistics company. We are committed to creating solutions for our customers that will simplify their supply chains. We are increasing backing our solutions with technology and pioneering a change in the logistics sector.

“I have been a great promoter of both customer-centricity as well as technology and bringing them together to drive the future of logistics will be one of the most important chapters of my career.”

Maersk’s vision to become an integrated container logistics company entails transformation of several aspects of its business, including launching several new product offerings for air freight, less than container loads (LCL) and warehousing.

Prior to his current responsibilities, Cook was based in the Netherlands with Damco as the Global owner of the Lifestyle Industry Vertical. He was responsible for the global PNL including strategy development and execution.

Cook holds a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours, in Logistics, from the University of Cardiff in the UK.
