Vista Global Logistics joins the SCS family
Vista excels in a variety of logistics services, including import/export, air/sea shipping, freight forwarding and several others. Its technology is also first-rate, particularly in the area of supply chain visibility, where we believe it complements ours extremely well.

In addition to his service as president and CEO of Vista, he is an accomplished forwarder, NVOCC and customs broker. Jeffrey has extensive experience in every facet of logistics including software development, air freight, NVOCC and LCL consolidation programs, and customs brokerage. He has created and managed international and domestic distribution programs for large corporations such as Esprit, Hallmark Cards, Enesco, Toro and Bausch & Lomb.

Jeffrey proceeded to gain diverse experience with AEI, a large multi-national forwarder, for whom he handled large corporate clients such as John Deere and Caterpillar, and was responsible for operational staff training and SOPs.
Returning to Rical Express, Jeffrey developed a new forwarding software, which improved efficiencies, while providing superior service and communication to Importers.
In 1992, Jeffrey started Freightforce Worldwide, which quickly became a leader in the Asian market, innovating “volume discounts” into air quotations, creating a new industry standard. He implemented a nationwide program for Hallmark Cards, handling distribution of their product into retail stores.
Jeffrey then started Worldtrans, a NVOCC, LCL and air freight consolidator and Customs broker, in addition he created and managed a shippers association. Worldtrans quickly became a multi-million-dollar company.
