You Made it Happen – Thanks to all involved for making our latest Freight Mart International Golf Day a huge success!

We would like to thank our valued customers for attending the latest Freight Mart International golf day at  Royal Fremantle.

There was some good golf, and some indifferent golf on the day but the weather was perfect and the course was in great condition (as always) so all who participated had a fantastic time. It is seemingly more difficult than ever to find the time to get away from the office for such events, but we feel it has never been more important to take these opportunities and improve both our physical and mental health. Special thanks to our Customs Manager Sarah who makes sure that dehydration doesn’t become an issue for the players.

We are immensely grateful for your continued support of Freight Mart International and we look forward to seeing you all again at the next installment.

Freight Mart International Expands Fleet with New Trucks

When the calendar flips to December, the whole world starts focusing on gift-giving. No matter if the main celebration of the month is a religious one, such as Christmas, or if it simply revolves around friends, food, and family, gift-giving and receiving is top of mind.

We have the same culture in Freight Mart Malaysia too. We have a Secret Santa gift exchange session, this activity becomes our routine annually. Of course, this is not compulsory. We set a budget and name what we wish to receive, and your Secret Santa will deliver to you!
