Kalgin Global Logistics will roll out a $2 million investment plan for its Fiji brand over the next two years.
Yesterday’s announcement by Managing Director Richard Lamport follows 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 are 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 the number of jobs for its 10-person staff in Fiji, Mr Lamport said.

“We hope to add another office by the end of the year.”
Kalgin Global has been in business for 33 years.
Elevate the Game
The rebranding is meant to “shake a few cages” in the industry, Mr Lamport said.
“One of our intentions when we entered the market here four years ago was to raise the bar, in terms of offering transport to importers
and exporters in Fiji,” he said.
“We wanted to drastically reduce the time during which cargo became available when it was unloaded from the ship.
“We wanted to be a market leader in terms of how quickly we can unpack our cargo and get it to our customers.
“We have been very successful in doing that.
“We want to bring global standards to the market here and really give our competitors a hard time.”
