Aiden – Freight Agent
Aiden has been working in the freight and global logistics Industry for over 14 years. He has worked from large Multi national freight forwarding companies including small
Customs brokerage firms developing his skills from the bottom up. Aiden started from working as a cargo driver straight out of school, rather then short falling his skills, Aiden developed into working with multi national Companies that would allow him to travel and work offshore.
With this gained experienced including in depth knowledge of import / export freight forwarding and customs brokerage practices, he has developed structural strategies for the company. . A problem that he found was that big companies were more concerned about volume then attending to the small customers. On one hand it meant more profit to concentrate on larger volume customers but on the other, we need small business’s to come up. While this may be true about profits, everybody started small. Aiden and his colleagues have helped setup our firm to establish a practice aimed at giving new starter or small Import / Export traders a chance to compete with some of the big volume importers. However the most contacted companies are larger companies looking at his personalised experience/ service or with a special movement.
