Freight forwarding platform Raft has appointed Rod Talbot as vice president sales, Asia, to help increase its presence in the Asia Pacific region.
Talbot has over 25 years of experience in logistics and supply chain management.
He was previously managing director, Asia, at global freight forwarding software platform provider, WiseTech Global.
“Raft is expanding its global presence and Rod represents a tremendous asset to our team given his experience within Asia Pacific, which is an exciting market for us,” said Lionel van der Walt, chief growth officer, Raft.
