Richard Borggreve

PhD Candidate

Richard Borggreve started his PhD program at the Kühne Logistics University in September 2022 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Gordon Wilmsmeier and Prof. Dr. Kai Hoberg. Richard is genuinely interested in topics related to organization and how human decision-making can be optimized in the age of artificial intelligence. Consequently the aim of this PhD project is to focus on forecasting and decision taking processes in the container shipping industry.

Richards academic background was formed at Lund University where he graduated with a B.Sc.BA. and later concluded his studies with a M.Sc.BA. specializing in the fields of organization and informatics. Before starting the master thesis he studied urban transport economics and consumer psychology in Spain at the Universidad de Sevilla.

Richard has worked in various countries and has broad professional experience in both forwarding and container shipping. He has been involved in and leading several restructuring processes and is currently, in addition to the PhD program, working for Hapag-Lloyd in Sweden as Senior Manager Operations. In April 2021 he successfully graduated from Hapag-Lloyd's ALPHA program.
