Gibson Freight Fiji PTY LTD

Gibson Freight Fiji was established in 1991 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Gibson Freight (Australia) Pty Ltd to initially service the developing textile, clothing and footwear (TCF) industry in Fiji.

 

Once established, Gibson Freight Fiji was able to fulfil the need for the forwarding of fabric and other components primarily from Australia, China and New Zealand to Fiji and for the distribution from Fiji of finished product to customers globally.

 

Three Fiji locations, Nadi Airport, Suva and Lautoka were developed to provide a door to door service for Australian and global TCF customers – all through a single point of contact utilising Gibson Freight staff and infrastructure.

 

As the Fiji TCF industry specialises in short lead times and small production runs, Gibson Freight Fiji ensures that product produced and packed in Fiji on any given weekday are at the point of sale in Australian capital cities on Monday of the following week, using regular air freight services.

 

Larger production runs from various Fiji factories destined for single or multiple customers can be consolidated into ocean freight containers by Gibson Freight Fiji and shipped for clearance, warehousing and delivery by the Gibson Freight Group companies in Australia or associates world wide.

 

A fourth Gibson Freight Fiji company location was later established at Port Denarau to primarily service the Fiji tourism and resort industries. Logistical services that drew synergies with the group’s activities in Australia and New Zealand were established to support Fiji’s resort, hospitality, convention, trade fair, duty free and conference industries.

 

The establishment of Gibson Freight China Ltd offered further support to all Fijian industries – including to the Fiji TCF and resort industries – through additional logistical services for product sourced in China and shipped through to Fiji through a selection of either full container or consolidated sea freight services or regular airfreight services.
