Aviation logistics provider Aero Africa expanded its management team with the appointment of two specialists.

Joey Xu joins the company as director airfreight Asia, which is a newly created role.

Xu, based in China, will be responsible for the overall airfreight development of the group in Asia with focus on procurement with carriers and optimising the company’s neutral scheduled airfreight consolidations from Asia to Africa.

She will also assist the business development team to promote its African solutions to the Asean freight forwarding and aviation community. 

Prior to joining Aero Africa, she worked as regional airfreight manager and head of air freight for M&M, On Time Express and Shipco Transport.

Gary Tobias joins the company as regional operations manager, a role in which he will be responsible for the regional airfreight import and cross-border operations of Aero Africa.

Tobias started in the wholesale industry working at CFR Freight SA (Pty) with airfreight exports and airfreight imports. After a few years of climbing the ranks, he was offered an opportunity to run the Cape Town airfreight operations as the operations supervisor in August 2019.

He has since relocated from Cape Town to Johannesburg where he is now based to assist the regional development of Aero Africa.
