Erica has a 20+ years’ history working within the Logistics and Supply Chain Industry globally. Reaching back to the mid-1990s, Erica began her career working in 3rd Party Logistics supporting the fast-paced automotive industry in Detroit, Michigan. It was there that Erica realised her niche for Supply Chain development and implementation after successfully leading start-ups ranging from greenfield warehousing and sub-assembly operations, JIT transport network planning, central materials stores, min/max bank and buffer programs and supply chain design (order to delivery). Upon its inauguration in 2001, Erica moved to Vector Supply Chain Management, a 4PL joint venture between Conway (Menlo) and General Motors.

It was during her days working for Vector SCM that Erica found her way to the Asia-Pacific region. Tasked with implementing the Vector SCM 4PL Model in SE Asia and Australia, Erica found her new home in Melbourne Australia where she has been living and working for the past fourteen years. During her time here in Australia, Erica has integrated herself into the Australian Transport and Logistics Industry working with, and alongside major companies such as Toll, Ceva, Amcor (Orora), Bluescope Steel, Woolworths and Target. In her more recent years, Erica moved into the wharf sector running a wharf services business in the Port of Melbourne before moving on to ACFS Port Logistics as GM of the Southern Region, including empty container parks Nationally. Erica’s current role as General Manager Sales at MaxiTRANS Australasia’s leading supplier of road transport equipment is synonymous with her expertise and ability to motivate, lead and inspire.
