By Minaal Pervaiz

How did you first get involved in the Shipping, Liner and Logistics industry?
I have been involved in the field for quite a long time. I grew up in close contact to everything shipping related and became more interested when I began to consider my further studies.

Tell us how you joined the CSS KSA branch. Why did you want this job?
I joined CSS KSA because of my interest and experience with [the CSS Group]. I knew that with the knowledge I acquired whilst pursuing my career, plus the experience I have accumulated throughout the years, it would be my next best step.

With your recent addition as a Co-Director (working alongside Britto Satheesh) of CSS KSA, what does this mean for the portfolio you will be managing?
We will be taking CSS KSA further, representing a big challenge that I am looking forward to.

How would you handle failure?
I can best describe how I see failure through the words from Thomas A Edison: “I have not failed. I have found 10,000 ways it will not work.” These words have followed me since my upbringing and are something that best describe our way of working in the logistics world.

What do you enjoy most about working at CSS KSA?
I am excited – it is a good opportunity to work with people from all over the world and share ideas to constantly bring innovation within the company.

What do you think the current state of affairs are in the industry and possible predictions?
The current state of affairs is positive because of the 2020 and 2030 vision. Also, business will be improving because of all these new projects across Saudi Arabia right now.

What motivates YOU?
An ambition to grow and make an impact in the industry. Legacy and the passing of knowledge are factors of motivation in my everyday life, and are my driving forces to always want to become bigger and better at what I do.
