Jakob Friis Sorensen

Former President Director - MAERSK Indonesia

Jakob Friis Sorensen is no stranger to the logistics industry. Previously employed by Maersk Line and stationed in various countries such as Indonesia, Japan, Denmark, India, Singapore and Malaysia, Mr. Friis Sorensen has seen his fair share of the industry’s ups and downs.

He returned to Indonesia in 2006 and joined the Kuehne + Nagel family in 2016 where he was hired to take on the task of leading Kuehne + Nagel Indonesia amidst a wave of anti-globalization and other challenges such as the US-China Trade dispute and Brexit. Despite all that is going on, there are still opportunities in Indonesia, Mr. Friis Sorensen said, and there are still benefits Indonesia can reap from those challenges.
