Logistics provider Globe Express Services (GES) has appointed Fulvio Moletti to the role of managing director for the Asia Pacific region. Moletti joined GES in 2012, leading its Southeast and South Asia region, with increasing levels of responsibility. His new role is part of a wider restructuring of operations at the company.

“Promoting Fulvio is a natural progression for GES, given his extensive operations and sales experience in Asia (since 1993), working for various reputable major 3PLs including Panalpina, DHL Global Forwarding and SDV.”
In his new role Moletti will be leading the company’s growth throughout Asia, a strong area for GES, employing over 30% of its total workforce and operating 26 offices in the region. He will be based at the company’s Shanghai office and report directly to president and CEO Michael C. Hughes.

“We are well positioned in Asia with an established network and flexible business model that allows us to develop unique 3PL solutions that differentiate the company and provide quantifiable value for our customers,” said Moletti. “Our talented people are passionate about global logistics and take pride in providing outstanding customer service. We have a bullish outlook in Asia centered on providing innovative supply chain solutions to our valued customers, in alignment with the company’s overall growth strategy.”

The strongest region for GES in the region, and globally, is China, where it operates 19 offices and holds a Class A forwarding licence for operations. Amongst its OEM clients there the company provides services for BMW Brilliance Automotive, Shanghai GM, Huachen Auto Group, Shenyang Jinbei Vehicle Manufacturer and Great Wall Motor. GES also provides services for tier one suppliers Lear and Gestamp.

The company said that it was expanding its services for the automotive sector within the country and its Shenyang branch was a good example of how developments were going.

“We offer not only general international transportation services but also customised global logistics and supply chain solutions,” said Rachel Sun, senior branch manager at Shenyang. “This includes warehousing and distribution, route and network design/optimisation, as well as end-to-end integrated logistics (cargo management) services.”
