My name is Carl Charles, a man with two first names: management analyst, proud veteran of the U.S. Navy/Marine Corps, and administrator of this blog. My background is in management consulting, vocational rehabilitation, sales operations, and performance management. I am the epitome of an Aquarius for being a hopeless romantic and believing that a positive attitude and fidelity to a working model will get you over the hump every time. I have a Masters in Business Management and 15 + years of experience in this industry. As an entrepreneur my main desire is to inspire the imagination of others. My long term goal has always been about sharing with readers and prospects, a clear vision of ‘international shipping service to the Caribbean and East Africa.’ ‘It’s just the way it is’ should not be an acceptable position when it means rationalizing endemic corruption and greed. When you see things you don’t like in any field or a business that you are passionate about, as an innovator, your first instinct should be to get into that industry and change things. This is the driving force behind this blog. My work experience ranges from starting a home healthcare agency in Southern California to running a supported employment program in the Capital Beltway as ‘Program Director.’ In 2004, my brother Nicholas aka Nick and I started Centuria Group in Washington, DC, with CentEx Cargo as one of its sub-divisions. CentEx Cargo is now a blog for a specific logistics infrastructure that consists of private companies specializing in freight transport, supply chain & logistics, and international shipping service. Our ten-year plan on the outset entailed having a presence up and down the Eastern Seaboard and the Pacific Northwest of the United States. CentEx Cargo currently conducts most of its business-to-business meetings in Manhattan, New York City. A main warehouse in Atlanta, Georgia is used as a distribution center for some key manufactured products – e.g., polydrums – while enabling us to provide intermodal transport of personal effects, courier services, trucking, and international shipping service from the U.S. to mainly the Caribbean and East Africa.
I want to have a long term relationship with you, valued customer. As a customer, you will experience BASIC, STANDARD, and CUSTOMIZED service. The expertise of my winning team is put to good use by bringing about simple solutions to complex problems encountered in the shipping industry to the Caribbean and Ethiopia. CentEx Cargo together with its partners have the brainpower, right equipment, and the wherewithal to deliver quality and customized international shipping service. Moreover, our Export Team listens to valued customers. It’s all about affordability. We know how much our collective efforts and time are worth. Therefore, we appreciate your invaluable input as well by welcoming your suggestions on how CentEx Cargo/ECU can better meet the needs of individual international shipping customers and business-to-business accounts.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your continued support and for showing an interest in this blog. Your tweets, emails, Snapchat stories, and Facebook responses are greatly appreciated.
Per your requests, here are two of the slogans we have used so far: ‘Raising the Bar for our Caribbean customers’ and ‘The Next Level of International Shipping.’ I look forward to using at least one more slogan, a process that requires laser like focus, contingent on the overall mission of the group, and how well the CentEx Cargo products and services are received by valued customers in our target market. My interests in this industry are broad and my fascination with intermodal freight transport and international shipping service is enduring. CentEx Cargo not only offers reliable service but emphasizes accountability in shipping. There is always a need for anti-corruption policies in CUSTOMS all over the world.
