MOVE is excited to announce that Kelly McGinty was awarded the ‘Professional Woman in Logistics and Transport’ award at The Chartered Institute of Logistic and Transport’s (CILTA) Annual Excellence Awards this year.
The award, sponsored by MOVE, recognises and celebrates the excellence and innovation of women in the Transport and Logistics Industry.
Kelly began her career in the Logistics industry in her early twenties, and has worked hard to achieve professional success as Business Development Manager and Project Manager at Powerhouse.
Powerhouse is an Australian owned and operated supply chain management organisation which specializes in creating custom solutions for their clients. Kelly’s experience in all areas of import/export air and sea freight has assisted with the task of relocating endangered animals, equine, livestock and aquatic animals.
Powerhouse has relocated animals on behalf of the Zoological Parks Board of NSW, and Zoo’s worldwide. Some of the precious cargo has included:
- Relocating Beluga Whales from Russia to China
- Relocating Rhinoceros from USA to Sydney
- Relocating a Giraffe from Dubbo to Auckland
- Relocating Pandas from China to Adelaide
In addition this, Powerhouse transports mining machinery, metallurgical and oversized cargo, scientific equipment, and much more!
Kelly loves the variety that the Logistics industry provides; from the cargo, to the mode of transport, to the degree of complexity of each freight. With a guarantee of learning something new every day, Kelly looks forward to growing her career in the Logistics industry and hopes to set an example and inspire others with the message that if you work hard and love what you do, you can accomplish anything.
We wish Kelly every success as she continues to develop her career in the transport and logistics industry.
