Our Key People

Trevor Hastie

Managing Director & Owner

Trevor has made the Customs & Freight industry his life, and has worked in many different areas of the industry including general transport, freight forwarding, Customs brokerage, and a stint with the New Zealand Customs Service, before the ownership of dedicated freight forwarding businesses.  International Freight Logistics NZ Ltd is a family-owned business which started in 1998 in Dunedin by Trevor and his family to put the ‘personal’ back into ‘personal service’ in an industry that is increasingly dominated by offshore owned multi-nationals lacking the understanding of, and interest in, New Zealand’s unique transport and shipping requirements and the challenges that come with them.
