Ninety years ago a partnership was formed in Suva by Capt. Williams and Capt. Gosling to provide pilot boat services at Fiji ports. Their efforts gained momentum through the years as shipping expanded to and from Fiji and the neighbouring island countries.
With expansion came opportunities to provide more comprehensive logistics services to satisfy the complex ever increasing needs of a young and modernising country.
The company was incorporated in 1936 and in 1949 the Aidney family purchased Williams & Gosling Ltd. The family had already made their mark providing accounting and management for over a decade. The company was poised to become the top logistics company in Fiji.
As Fiji’s leading freight forwarder and Customs broker, W&G now offers a comprehensive worldwide logistics air and sea freight door-to-door service for both importers and exporters.
Its advanced information management and freight tracking capabilities are enhanced with a worldwide network of recognised agents that ensure all shipments are delivered safely and on time.
W&G’s comprehensive services include heavy and project transportation, audio-visual industry support, household and office removal, storage and distribution, records management, international and local courier services, container depots, as well as freight forwarding and Customs clearance.
W&G has diversified and grown and introduced new technologies and innovations and techniques, but the success over the years also reflects their total commitment to the client. This has been achieved by a highly trained, dedicated team. The company has 330 employees, all locals. That reflects the Aidney tradition of excellence through training and re-training for that is the cornerstone of the business.
