About me

My name is Nolwazi Mthethwa, I am a young and vibrant logistics management graduate from the University of Zululand, and I hold a certificate in Supply chain management from the Institute of Quality. I’m looking for employment in the supply chain/Logistics and transportation sector.

I am a self-motivated, hardworking individual who pays close attention to detail and is very passionate about the supply chain, more specifically all modes of transportation, procurement, import and export.  I have worked as a warehouse trainee at Rennies Ships Agency in 2017 where I gained most of my Warehouse and import/ Export experience. I’ve also worked for Sisama Trading as a logistics administrator and operator where I gained broader exposure in Inspection of imported and exported bulk and break bulk cargo at the Richards bay  port, rail, trucking, generally solving logistics issues and the supply chain as a whole and how it operates.

I am looking for a position that will challenge me and allow me the opportunity to broaden my horizons in my career through more exposure and tackling new and fresh challenges. I believe I would be a great candidate for this job as the jobs and volunteering work I have been involved in throughout the years have groomed me to be the person I am today. I believe it has prepared me to be able to take on any task or challenge that I may be faced with and be able to bring value to any organization.
