About the client:

With over three decades of experience in airfreight, sea freight, brokerage, and multimodal & warehousing services, the client is well recognized for its flexible and personalized service in Logistics industry. The client has four 3PL sites and one free-zone site in Sri Lanka, serving leading international fabric, electronics, and local customers.
