Freight Mart International Sponsors South Fremantle Football Club
Freight Mart International is a proud sponsor of SFFC and this weekend we invited staff and customers to join us for the local Derby against East Fremantle.
Freight Mart has sponsored various local sporting teams for many years and we are pleased that our financial support goes towards equipment, upgrading infrastructure, and support staff just to name a few.
Supporting our local community is very important and it is something that we will continue to do with a lot of pride.
Freight Mart International Sponsored Golf Day
Congratulations, Sean Doller, on becoming our inaugural Freight Mart Winter Cup Champion! With a dominant 41 points, you stole the show away from Mason Lawrence on countback. The field played great golf on a beautiful day, and Mandurah Country Club was in absolute pristine condition. We are proud to have contributed our sponsorship to this amazing event.
Freight Mart Thailand
Freight Mart International established an office in Bangkok in 2018 primarily to assist our Australian operations with data entry, job registrations, and other administrative duties across the business.
Over the past 5 years we have built a very capable and loyal team who have demonstrated that they are capable of contributing much more, and we plan to build on these foundations and grow the Bangkok branch in all aspects.
With this in mind our MD Billy Reader, and his wife Pippah will relocate to Thailand for an extended period to work with the Bangkok team and provide the necessary training, and source additional staff for customers who wish to utilise our Offshore Staffing Solutions which have proven such an asset in the Malaysian branch. We are very excited about the benefits that will come as a result of this exercise, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to learn more about the services we are offering.
