Kalgin Global Logistics will roll out a $2 million investment plan for its Fiji brand over the next two years.

The announcement yesterday by managing director Richard Lamport followed the rebranding of Total Logistics Solutions Fiji Pte Ltd (TLS) to Kalgin Global Logistics.

“We see a lot of opportunities in various areas of the transport industry in Fiji,” he said.

 

“We’re committed to putting our money where our mouth is by investing in the country and its people.”

TLS is owned by Kalgin Global, a New Zealand and Australian freight company.

The company will double employment figures from its 10-membered staff in Fiji, Mr Lamport said.

 

Kalgin Global’s Oceania employment figures stand at around 60 staff members.

“Now is a very good time to synchronise Fiji with the rest of the group in Australia and New Zealand, thereby renaming Kalgin,” Mr Lamport
said.

“The local staff are now working under a bigger brand name.

 

“We hope to add another office by the end of the year.”

Kalgin Global has been in operation for 33 years.

 

Raising The Game
The rebranding is intended to “rattle a few cages” in the sector, Mr Lamport said.

“One of our intentions when we entered the market here four years ago, was to raise the bar, in terms of the transport offering to importers
and exporters within Fiji,” he said.

“We wanted to significantly reduce the amount of time that cargo became available when it was unloaded from the vessel.

 

“We wanted to be a market leader in terms of how quickly we can have our cargo unpacked and available for our customers.

“We’ve been very successful in doing that.

“We want to bring world standards into the market here and really give our competitors a run for their money.”
