"Want to double our footprint in next two years," says Jonathan Clark of Air Menzies International
Jonathan Clark, CEO & EVP at Air Menzies International, sat with Libin Chacko Kurian of STAT Media Group recently at air cargo Africa 2023, in Johannesburg, South Africa.
They spoke about the recession-like scenario in the global economy, its effects on the global air freight market, how Air Menzies International has been navigating these headwinds, the recently opened offices and his growth plans for the future.
Being a neutral wholesale freight forwarder, Clark takes us through the history of the company, operations in Africa, recent innovations, digitalisation and the expertise of its people in providing a complete package of freight forwarding solutions.
While talking about digitalisation and automation in his company and how interactive they are with his clients, Clark took a pause and reminded us that he doesn't want to get away from customer interaction.
