Scott Ellery

My career in freight forwarding got underway in 1992 when I started with Burnard International before going on to join the family business, Ellery Freight, three years later.

Now with more than 20 years in the industry, I make a point of continuous learning because only by understanding how the industry is changing and evolving can we deliver the quality service the company strives towards.

I hold an Auckland University of Technology Diploma in Business, and also a New Zealand Customs Agents License and a New Zealand Maritime School Certificate in Supply Chain Management.

I am currently a Director of Hawk Ellery Freight Services and a director of International Cargo Express New Zealand.

I began my career as a customs broker trainee in 1982, before heading overseas in 1985 to explore the world with a backpack.
Returning in 1988 I gained my customs brokers license in 1995 and became a director of Hawk Customs and Freight NZ Ltd in 1996.
Logistics is a dynamic career with every day throwing up new challenges.

Like most businesses, I am always learning and looking for ways to improve our performance and add value for our customers.
