Dear Client, Dear Business Partner,

I am pleased to share some exciting news regarding TLC (Guyana) Inc.

Appointment of Luigi Rota as new Country Manager

Luigi Rota has been appointed as our new TLC Guyana Inc. Country Manager and started on May 1st 2021.

Luigi has held various management positions in South and North America and has accumulated more than 15 years of experience in both the international freight forwarding and oil&gas industries. He is also very familiar with the country, having conducted several logistics studies in Guyana during the past couple of years.

I am convinced that Luigi’s experience and expertise will greatly benefit TLC Guyana Inc. as well as our portfolio of customers.
