Cargostore Worldwide today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Andrew Hart to the role of Vice President, Offshore, reporting to CEO Justin Farrington Smith.
After 7 strong years in which the business has seen considerable growth, current Vice President Offshore Jacob Poot, following a handover period, will be retiring from his full time role whilst continuing to support Cargostore as a non-executive Brand Ambassador.

Says Jacob Poot, “For me, now is the right time to hand over to Andrew to head the Offshore Division and I am pleased that I will be able to continue to support in the future development of the company whilst maintaining contact with our partners and clients.”
Andrew Hart, formerly the CEO of Freight Forwarders Kenya brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the team, having operated in several roles within freight forwarding and logistics serving the Oil and Gas, Mining and other major infrastructure projects.
Andrew Hart had these words to say “Cargostore is an exciting company with a great team and I’m really looking forward to supporting the continued expansion of the business in the Oil & Gas and Offshore Wind sectors.”
Says Justin Farrington Smith, CEO of Cargostore “Jacob leaves a lasting legacy and I’m very glad he will continue to support us from the side lines. Andrew’s appointment follows an extensive worldwide search to ensure we appointed someone who not only shares our beliefs and passion for customer service, but has significant industry experience and a real desire to ensure the Cargostore growth story continues.”
