Meet our new C&F Manager
We managed to corner our new C&F Manager and find out more about him. Meet Andre Assam.
Andre, tell us a bit more about yourself.
I have been working in the shipping industry for over 14 years. I started as a driver before becoming an entry clerk. I was then an Operational Manager for about 7 years before working as an Import Manager for 4 years, when I also completed a customs course.
As the new C&F manager what do you see as your main responsibilities?
Making sure that our clients are happy with our service.
What do you enjoy most about working in this industry?
I find the whole logistics process fascinating - how something, anywhere in the world, can be shipped to your doorstep.
What are the challenges?
Keeping my staff together, ensuring that our clients do not move to other clearing and forwarding companies due to a lack of service.
How do you relax?
I enjoy playing golf.
Your favourite drink and dish?
I really like lime and soda and a good curry dish.
What motivates you? My family (wife and child)
