for the growth of trade in South Asia. I am confident that Niki’s strategic

“The Philippine
economy, like many others, has taken a hit this year because of Covid-19, but
is expected to see a gradual
rebound
from 2021 onwards, even as the ASEAN
region anticipates consumer spending to double
by 2030
. With her experience across various
business functions, including in a strategic regional role, and her sharp
business acumen, Yvonne is the ideal candidate to lead our business in the
Philippines to capture opportunities as the market recovers and moves into its

measurement and customer implementation. In her most recent role as Head of
Strategic Projects, ASEAN and South Asia, she oversaw several key change
management and transformation projects for the freight forwarder. 

 

“One of my key
priorities is to drive an even more customer-centric approach in response to
the evolving needs of local businesses, as we ramp up our digitalization
efforts to provide customers with a better shipping experience. Having worked
with colleagues in the Philippines in my previous role, I am excited to join a
team of dynamic and committed freight forwarders to tackle the unique
