Freight Management Ltd (FML) has joined independent freight forwarder network – The WACO System – as a member for Bangladesh.
FML employs 117 staff in offices in the capital Dhaka, and the port city of Chittagong, providing road, air and ocean services across Bangladesh, which is one of the world’s fastest growing economies.
“FML has been operating for over 22 years, and we look forward to the local knowledge and expertise they will bring to the network,” said The WACO System executive director, Richard Charles.
