Clarke Global Logistics – Meet Our Key People

This month we feature Martin Moyano, Managing Director of Clarke Global Logistics.  He is a passionate freight forwarding specialist, known for his lightning-fast response to client enquiries and lateral thinking when faced with a logistics challenge.

Martin was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and speaks fluent English and Spanish. He has developed his career in the international logistics industry, working for a range of logistics, import and export organisations of various sizes for nearly 3 decades between Argentina, New Zealand and Australia.

Martin joined the Clarke Global Logistics team in 2010 as a Licensed Customs Broker, bringing the extensive experience he had acquired, and appealed by the opportunity the company offered to develop its business strategy into the freight forwarding arena. Since joining Clarke Global Logistics, he has built up the freight forwarding component of the business to a point where it has now outgrown the traditional customs brokerage service of the company.

Martin’s qualifications include a Bachelor in International Trade (2000) and a Diploma in Customs Law (1994).  As a Licensed Customs Broker, he regularly undertakes Continuing Professional Development and Continued Biosecurity Competency to ensure that his knowledge and understanding of changes affecting the customs and quarantine industry remain up-to-date.

What our clients say …

I have used Martin and his team multiple times before for multiple different businesses, and I am always so impressed by their service! No matter what you’re wanting to import and no matter what country it’s coming from, they are so knowledgeable and take care of everything! – Madi Kennedy

Over the past few years, Clarke Global have become an essential partner for our business. We get daily shipping updates and frequent communications all the way to delivery to our door. We know our shipments are in good hands. Martin and the professional team have customer service at the fore. They’re knowledgeable, responsive, always courteous and no question or query is too difficult to answer. The best value services provider we have by a long shot. Highly recommended – Tim Wilson

From time-to-time Martin also likes to bring his big affectionate fur baby, Marley, into the office, creating a “paw-sitive” influence on the CGL team’s wellbeing and smiles all round.

While you are attending the Australian Adventure Expo, why not stop by at Clarke Global’s stand and introduce yourself?  Martin would love to meet you, to learn more about your business and to hear about the typical challenges that you face with the logistics of moving your adventure gear.
