Clarke Global recently featured in The Age to celebrate our 100th Anniversary:
In 1917, a young Frederick J. Clarke started a small customs agency, to become known as Clarke Wilkinson Customs and Shipping Agents. Clarke had supervised the clearance of steel for the Trans-Australian Railway to Perth, a massive achievement for Australian logistics in that year.
In the 100 years since, the company has had several name changes to become Clarke Global Logistics.
“We are proud of our past and extremely excited about what is ahead of us,’’ says Managing Director Jason Kline. “We continue to grow and,while our roots are in customs, we have transformed into a fully integrated trade and logistics service for Australia and the world.”
Kline has been with the company for 30 years, becoming Managing Director in 2010. He believes Clarke Global Logistics’ personalised approach is in the firm’s DNA, and although the firm rigorously keeps pace with technological advances there is still a strong emphasis on developing client relationships and offering creative solutions.
