JACKSONVILLE – AFF de Puerto Rico welcomes Raul “Andy” Pacheco as a transportation consultant for the company, which specializes in cargo freight forwarding to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Andy brings over 25 years of experience in Puerto Rico freight forwarding to AFF de Puerto Rico. Most recently, he was a business development manager for CaribEx Worldwide, Inc., and focused on key account development and management in the continental United States, the Dominican Republic, Panama, as well as in Puerto Rico.
“Andy has the keen understanding of the freight challenges and needs of businesses in Puerto Rico as only a person raised and educated in the Commonwealth can,” said AFF de Puerto Rico Vice President, Sales Craig Forbes. “That background coupled with his freight experience and strong interpersonal and problem solving skills will further strengthen AFF de Puerto Rico’s overall customer service in that unique market.”
One of his first tasks in his new position, Andy said, will be to increase awareness about AFF de Puerto Rico’s presence in a competitive market by building strong connections and relationships with customers and local vendors. “Our company is a well-structured, resourceful company with opportunities for growth,” Andy said, “both for the company and for me as an individual in my field of expertise.”
