TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF...

My name is Derashnee Govindasamy – but you can call me The Night Owl!

As Airfreight Supervisor for Operations at SEKO South Africa, I am responsible for:

  • Developing, encouraging, and motivating others
  • Planning and managing airfreight orders from beginning to end
  • Negotiating rates to obtain the best possible solution for our clients
  • Arranging quotes
  • Training and developing new staff members
  • Resolving queries internally and client queries
  • Managing and being there for my team whenever they need me

What is a typical day in the life?

EVERY DAY STARTS WITH...

Tea with a dash of honey! I switch on my laptop, sanitize my desk, start up my outlook, download my emails, and then I start checking all urgent e-mails and respond to them effectively and timelessly. I then ensure that all my clients are updated with detailed information on their shipments.

PHEW, TIME FOR A BREAK...

On the menu today is Bunny Chow! Bunny Chow is a South African fast-food dish consisting of a hollowed-out load of white bread filled with curry. Absolutely delicious! – Followed by an afternoon snack of fruit salad with yogurt.

No day is complete without…

  • Ensuring that all quote requests have been actioned and sent to the clients
  • Reviewing all completed tasks to ensure we as a team have not missed anything
  • Checking in with myself and my team to prioritize on planning what needs to be accomplished the next day
  • Finally, we as a team work together in cleaning and tidying up our workstation so that it’s ready for the next day

“ALL FOR ONE, ONE FOR ALL. LOSE OR WIN – OUR TEAM IS FAMILY! WE RISE TOGETHER AND CATCH THE FALL TOGETHER!”
