After “the dream life of Walter Mitty”, here is the dream life of an airfreight agent, MY LAST JOB :
-to be read with great humor-
I am able to handle 3 majors traffics, take bookings for 5 different consols and to answer of 12 callings in the same time.
It’s not necessary to sleep, a forwarding agent stays at disposal 24 hours per day, 7 days 7.
I am responsible of any product delay from shippers, traffic jam, mechanical matters on truck, planes, boats but also for economic crisis!
I can do all my best to increase capacity weight and volume on truck, on flight, even if there is no space more.
I can create a good relationship with the trucker, I can ask him to load or unload shipper’s shipment, and gracefully.
I have the power to clear all problems in order to deliver the shipment to the airline company before the deadline.
Be a forwarding agent is also to be a magician or a fairy
I keep the smile and know listening. I know working in a team, I develop every day the capacity to negotiate everything with everybody in every circumstances.
I can get without difficulty a competitive freight rate including customs clearance and delivery for a shipment to Dubaï or Fort de France …
My life is full of opportunities you me allow to experiment
Your price will be my price, your destination will be mine, your request will be my talent.
With my best regards
Your dedicated transit agent,
