Gibson Freight International Fiji Ltd
Gibson Freight Fiji was established in 1991 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Gibson Freight (Australia) Pty Ltd to service the developing textile, clothing and footwear (TCF)
industry in Fiji. Created to fulfil the need for forwarding of fabric and other components primarily from Australia and distribution of finished product to customers in
Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
Three Fiji locations, Nadi Airport, Suva and Lautoka were developed to provide a single responsibility door to door service to Australian customers. 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 air freight.
Larger production runs from various factories destined for a single customer are consolidated into ocean freight containers by Gibson Freight Fiji and shipped for clearance
and delivery by Group companies in Australia or associates world wide.
Gibson Freight Fiji has recently focussed on extending it's presence in the Fiji hospitality, convention, conference, cruising super yacht and general tourism logistics market
where there is synergy with the group’s activities in Australian and New Zealand. This service is coordinated through a fourth company location at Port Denarau, epicentre for
the Fiji Tourism Industry.
Despite internal disruption to the Fiji economy from time to time local management of Gibson Freight Fiji continues to maintain its solid business base and work with the
Australian group towards developing additional services unique to Gibson Freight Fiji.
