Steve Wallace


I began my career as a customs broker trainee in 1982, before heading overseas in 1985 to explore the world with a backpack.

Returning in 1988 I gained my customs brokers license in 1995 and became a director of Hawk Customs and Freight NZ Ltd in 1996. Logistics is a dynamic career with every day throwing up new challenges.

Like most businesses, I am always learning and looking for ways to improve our performance and add value for our customers.

I am currently a director of Hawk Ellery Freight Services Ltd, and a director of International Cargo Express New Zealand.
