Aparo takes new role at FPS

Famous Pacific Shipping Group (FPS) has appointed Sam Aparo as the new advisory board chairman of the independent network of forwarders and consolidators.
Aparo replaces FPS Group founder Benny Ling, who has taken early retirement on health grounds.
Said Aparo: “I am delighted to take on this important role, although I would have wished for it under different circumstances. Benny Ling has put huge enthusiasm and commitment into FPS Group since its formation in 1999, and much of what we know as FPS Group today is down to his personal efforts.
“On behalf of all FPS Group members, I thank him for all he has done, and wish him a speedy and full recovery.”
FPS Group focus will now centre on network expansion, particularly in the Americas and Asia. Continued Aparo: “There are significant challenges ahead for independent forwarders, and the economies of scale and sharing of costs that derive from forwarding networks are taking on a much greater appeal.”
