About Peter

A renown leader in the international freight forwarding and logistics industry, I am now dedicated to providing advice and support to various organizations through my consulting company based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Career highlights include a career as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Air Cargo Pty Ltd., (sold to AMI- Air Menzies, 2008) an international wholesale air cargo company that had operations in the United States, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. I am a subject matter expert in securing government logistics contract, having been the founder and former CEO and President of Final Mile Logistics, an international logistics operation and government contract vendor. I hold extensive knowledge, invaluable professional contacts, and proven success moving freight into hostile areas such as Africa, Afghanistan, and Iraq. My supply chain management industry experience and expertise is in all areas: Operations, sales, consulting, neutral airfreight wholesale, and procuring military contracts and understanding the process of government bids for service.

Prior to purchasing Universal Air Cargo Pty Ltd. in 1987, I held an equity position in a major Australian Freight Forwarder and Customs Agency, founded a business in New Zealand, and was employed in various sales management positions with air cargo and forwarding companies in New Zealand, the UK and Australia.
