Smart New Partnership


We are excited to announce that we have started working with Andrew Smithurst a Global Network Consultant.

At Jenkar we have been keen for some time to develop our overseas agency network with a view to establishing long term partnerships on a global front in key areas.  The opportunity to work with Andrew and capitalise on his knowledge and many contacts has helped us accelerate this process considerably with introductions to agents by way of a mutual established relationship.

“I am absolutely delighted to announce that as from December 1st 2020 I have joined the team at Jenkar as a consultant. I will be heading up the overseas team. Jenkar is a company I have personally known for more than 30 years. It is a business that is looking to continue its growth in the coming years. When I was approached by Andrew Phillips to help with their agency network it did not take me long to see this was a great opportunity for me to help an already well established business. Having spent the last 30 years travelling the world and making many contacts overseas I am going to be helping Jenkar to roll out their agency network. So far the support received from Barry Symons and his team has been fantastic and I am sure this will be a long term partnership. I am looking forward to introducing many old and new friends to Jenkar in the coming months and years ahead!’

“I have known Andrew for a number of years and I am aware of many of his achievements within the industry especially in the Agency networking domain.  That is why as soon as I found out Andrew was looking to work with another UK forwarder as the next stage of his career we did not hesitate in trying to acquire his services.”

This year (2021) was earmarked in Jenkar to focus on expanding and further establishing a solid global agency network, we have been actively looking for tools, contacts and market opportunities to help us achieve this goal. 

Being an UK established company for over 40 years we have many years experience of dealing in multimodal shipments,  with a strong focus historically being on ‘FCL deep sea’. So, when the opportunity arose to join the Northstar network (a Global FCL Forwarders Alliance) we were eager to get on board. With the added ability to join as a ‘founder member’ we are excited to witness the growth of the network and are looking forward to connecting with like minded organisations.
