Raphael Jae Joined the VS Cargo Ltd team in July of 2006 as an entry level Data Clerk at Head Quarters. He was inducted into logistics, and trained directly by the CEO Alessandra Valenza until 2007. In 2007, he was assigned to the Operations Site Walilanji Road premises and under W.E. Valenza’s mentorship was trained in Warehousing Operations and Logistics Solutions. He was the only Logistics Operative between 2006 and 2008/9.
Raphael then started building the Logistics Department from scratch in 2008 whilst also serving as assistant to W.E Valenza in heading the Operations Department. Although not in an official capacity, he aggressively strove to learn as much as he could and it paid off in the following ways;
After W.E Valenza’s expatriation to the DRC, Raphael trained 3 consecutive Operations Managers between 2008 and 2010/11 before settling into the Logistics Department fully as then Department Supervisor.
Between 2011 and 2014, Raphael was promoted to Customer Manager, a position he still holds to this day alongside that of Head of Logistics Department.
Raphael was also instrumental in the creating of the Security Escort department and wrote some of the Standard Operating Procedures that we still use to this day.
