    Pros

    It locates in a quite location. People I meet are nice people. Many people stayed in the company for a longtime.

    Cons

    Sometime lack of guidance. Very tight budget. Communication with management could be better. I worked with many contractors. Sometimes feel lack of long term planning.

    I worked at Allport Cargo Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    even though there's SOP but since it's such a small freight forwarding company based in HK, there's no need to follow SOP. Worked in a very small team of ppl mainly following up orders with existing clients and at the same time you need to find the time to find new clients. Lunch hours is on time.

    Cons

    Before Allport cargo services bought over, the company name is called WTL ALLPORT. The email system used were back at the dinosaurs age that desperately needs improving. It's because of the user unfriendly email, which makes work more difficult and results in you need to print just about every single email out, which is very un-environmental friendly. Cannot see job prospects in this company. Very Lack of training given.

    Advice to Management

    the senior management ppl needs to trust their staff more, and be less of a control freak. And consider to allow staff to take their AL not just around the Chinese New Year period but through out the whole year.

    Pros

    A very people centric organisation. Allport is focused on building relationships with colleagues, customers and partners. Training and self development are encouraged. If you are ambitious the support is available to go all the way.

    Cons

    It is frustrating that so many service companies cite 'their people' as their differentiator, because it undermines what is truly a unique proposition in Allport.
