The team

Dedicated logistics professionals

Our team is a group of dedicated professionals combining over 100 years of experience and expertise in logistics, storage, expedition, forwarding, legal and fiscal legislation, customs brokerage, excise and administration.
We practice un unconventional way of working: every project is handled and executed by one senior expeditor, from A to Z. This is your project manager, your contact, sounding board, troubleshooter, firefighter, cheerleader, champion, fountain of knowledge and all-around superhero. At Red Star you'll find no management layers, departments, call another number - it’s bureaucracy to the min so we can focus on the juicy stuff: getting your goods when and where you want them to be.
