    I tip my hat for the Lego family. In my view the Lego family is far superior to Maersk, which is now run by tired people. In the old days the saying goes: When the horse cannot perform optimally it’s time to retire it and let it live the rest of its life enjoying the green grass.

    There are quite a few Maersk people who are in this category.

    I believe that the the spirit in Maersk has to change dramatically. Mr. Moller had become a dinosaur not belonging to this century. It’s really amusing that he insisted to be called Mr. Moller. That tells a lot about himself.
