This specifically includes the heavy lift, project cargo and breakbulk market, having previously served in senior executive roles at Global Ocean AS and T.P. Shipping AS where he developed U.S. and U.K. subsidiaries of both companies. Morland was educated at DPH Technical College & BI Norwegian Business School with Shipping & Finance modules from Copenhagen Business School.
