Starting out as a warehouse storeman in Botany NSW at the age of 18 I began my career in the logistics industry at ground level.

Over the next 13 years I moved through each operational department of the business gaining valuable skills and knowledge of International Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain Management.

Today my client portfolio is the largest in the organization with over $1.1 Million dollars gross profit from trading in the 2014-2015 financial year. It remains on track for an increase of 10% this financial year.
