AGS Four Winds taps Garcia to lead new Japan office

HONG KONG: AGS Four Winds International Movers is setting up shop in Tokyo, adding to its global network of 127 locations in 79 countries.

With expatriate rates growing by 14.9 per cent over the past five years in Japan, Tokyo continues to command some of the globe’s most important commercial and diplomatic traffic. Rated the most expensive city to live in for expatriates by Mercer in 2012, Tokyo’s expatriates are increasingly in need of more innovative and cost-effective mobility solutions.

AGS brings to the market its four decades of experience in the international arena, outstanding quality, unique packing methodologies and cost-saving finesse. AGS Four Winds Japan is now open for business and fully operational to meet the requirements of AGS’ current and prospective clients in Japan and throughout the world.

AGS Four Winds Japan is headed by Ben Garcia, who has over five years’ experience as a branch manager in Asia. Harvard-educated, Garcia is well-respected for his leadership skills and, during his time at AGS Four Winds Korea, he was honoured to serve as chairman of the Transportation and Logistics Committee for the EU Chamber of Commerce.

“We’re enormously excited about AGS’ development in the Japanese market,” Garcia said. “The new branch is an important step in expanding AGS’ reach to serve the needs of Japan’s world-renowned corporations. Acknowledging that moving is as personal as it is physical, we bring an internationally acclaimed reputation for respect, empathy and efficiency.”

AGS Four Winds Japan opens with the full range of international and domestic removals services for companies, NGOs, governmental organisations and private individuals. The opening in Japan closely follows the establishment of AGS Four Winds Vietnam earlier this year.
