EDISON, N.J., Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Mohawk Global Logistics, a leading freight forwarder and Customs broker in the Northeast, has appointed Brian Zappola to oversee its expansion into the New Jersey region.
This latest development follows two years of unprecedented growth for the company, which has increased its full time workforce company wide by 27% in that time. By expanding, Mohawk will be closer to the New York and New Jersey ports of entry, as well as their current clients in the fashion industry, which is becoming one of the company's most highly appraised verticals. Extending to the New Jersey area allows Mohawk a larger reach geographically and gets them closer to the Northeast gateway, allowing them to bring their extensive experience and knowledge of working with government agencies, such as the FDA, Customs, and Department of Commerce, to U.S. importers and exporters in the area.
As General Manager, Zappola, a licensed Customs broker and Six Sigma Green Belt, will be developing client relationships and introducing the New Jersey area to Mohawk's unique blend of compliance and customer service.
"His strong leadership and team development skills are going to give us an edge over the competition," says Mohawk's President and CEO, Gar Grannell.
