About me

As an import controller at Cargo Compass SA, I coordinate and manage the importation of goods from various countries, ensuring compliance with customs regulations and documentation requirements. I also liaise with clients, suppliers, and agents to facilitate the import process and resolve any issues that may arise.
I completed my Bachelor of Commerce Degree in 2022 and I am currently studying towards a Master of Business Administration Degree at the University of Suffolk.
I am a result-driven and dedicated professional, with excellent critical thinking and problem-solving skills. I have the ability to operate both independently and in a team environment. I thrive in challenging and fast-paced situations.
