Envío About To Celebrate 15 Years In Business

 

Next week, the Envío International team will be celebrating a major milestone, as the business will have been in existence for 15 years, after originally being incorporated on 5th March 2009.

Therefore, next Tuesday will mark 15 years of us making waves in Latin America and providing industry-leading freight solutions for North, Central & South America, the Caribbean, Europe and the rest of the world.

Envío Managing Director – Sean Stokes – commented “The past 15 years have just flown by. We are delighted to have reached this milestone and really need to acknowledge the major role that our customers, staff, partners and suppliers have all played in our development so far. For that, Scott and I are extremely grateful”.

“Upon reflection, I am proud to say that the ethos of the company has remained consistent throughout our 15 years of specialising in Latin American services. As an independent business, we continue to be solution led with a flexible approach to logistics, while backing that up with friendly and attentive customer service.” 

How time flies! To put that into perspective, here are some of the major events and news stories from 15 years ago (2009).

  • Barack Obama was sworn in as the first African-American President of the United States.
  • Flight 1549 ditched on the Hudson River, with pilot ‘Sully’ saving all 155 passengers.
  • Microsoft released Windows 7 for desktops and laptops.
  • Manchester United won the Premier League and Chelsea won the FA Cup.
  • Avatar was the biggest movie at global box offices.
  • The biggest selling singles were Boom Boom Pow (The Black Eyed Peas) and Poker Face (Lady Gaga).
