Christmas is the biggest holiday celebrated in our office (aside from the Stanley Cup). We will have dinner, exchange gifts, and generally have a great time getting to know our colleagues outside of the office environment.
Currently all staff based in Vancouver are operations & customer service focused, aside from the GM who handles local sales, quotations and business development in Canada. Although most of the past years activity has been export-focused in 2020 there began new and growing activity in the import, trucking and transload business being operated in Vancouver branch.
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, just a few hours from world class skiing and beautiful beaches. There is nowhere in Canada that offers more in way of a combining the best aspects of metropolitan life and outdoor activities in such close proximity. It’s truly a paradise for anyone with an active lifestyle.
3 Questions to Elsa Rice, FMS Vancouver
I am a Logistics Coordinator involved in arranging and operating a variety of logistics services; import & export, customs clearance, trucking & more.
Although in my 30 years’ experience in the logistics industry in Canada I’ve had the opportunity to work in a variety of areas for ocean carriers, shippers and in trucking, my time at FMS has allowed me to do more and expand my experience into new areas. Being a part of a new branch establishing FMS in a new country has been challenging and rewarding..
The diversity in business activities and great collaboration with FMS colleagues in North America and FMS worldwide for me creates a unique environment for professional development and success. Globally FMS feels more connected and supportive allowing me to do more for my clients.
