New freight forwarding business starts trading
Privately-owned freight forwarding business FSC Oceans has started trading from its headquarters in London.
Launching its new website this month (March), FSC Oceans will offer a broad spectrum of services from traditional freight forwarding to supply chain consultation.
Led by Managing Director Shatha Aziz, FSC Oceans plans to hit the £10m turnover milestone in just a few years.
Moving to the UK from Iraq in 2016, Aziz brought with her 15 years’ experience providing multinational businesses with bespoke logistics solutions. She heads up a team which includes Commercial Director Alan Hewitt, Operations Manager Steve Tumber, General Manager Salem Haifi and Account Supervisor Soraya Benouda.
Aziz said: “I’m very proud to have seized the opportunity to launch my own business in the UK and thrilled with the expertise, flair and dedication of the team I’ve built around me. Our culturally diverse make-up is one of our key strengths and between us we have worked across a broad spectrum of industry sectors, including automotive, FMCG, industrial, oil & gas, high tech, retail, drinks logistics and marine logistics.
“We will work with customers in these sectors, of all sizes and complexity, building long-term relationships and setting up exclusive contracts with the world’s leading air, sea and road carriers thanks to our exceptional contacts and the long standing relationships we have across the globe.”
Hewitt, who has more than 28 years’ experience in international logistics, having previously worked for both Kuehne + Nagel and RH Freight, added: “A major part of our skill set and expertise at FSC Oceans is our shared experience of tried and tested methods of evaluating and streamlining supply chains, with the end goal of providing each customer with a dedicated, value-drive solution.”
The business is currently recruiting for two Business Development Managers who will be based at its London headquarters and tasked with growing FSC Oceans’ client base.
