Let's start from the beginning, how and when did you begin working in the freight forwarding industry?
JCNJ - Iâ€™ve been working in this industry for 24 years already.
In Brazil, what are the challenges you face with regulations and other factors that affect shipping?
JCNJ - The most agents outside of Brazil knows very well, how difficult are the Customs Rules in my country, there is a lot of bureaucracy and rules to follow. They know Brazil is as a difficult country.
Speaking of regulations, what should people, shipping to your country, know about customs?
JCNJ - We always send messages and emails, where we describe and teach the agents how to issue documents to Brazil, they only release the cargo after our green light.

How many offices do you have and where is your headquarters? When did you first establish the company?
JCNJ - The company is in SÃ£o Paulo city, the main city of Brasil, close to the airport (Guarulhos and Viracopos) and port (Santos). Weâ€™ve set up the company in September 2002.
What advice would you give to a person, who is considering the freight forwarding industry as a career path?
JCNJ - If in my country - be patient! But for those, who are entering the industry now, think how to minimise time and accelerate the processes using the technology available today.
What's your ideal vision of the freight forwarding industry?
