PT Kellys Express Jakarta celebrates the first ten years

Sep 14, 2017
PT Kellys Express in Jakarta has recently celebrated ten years in business with a party held at a local restaurant attended by around 200 guests, customers, friends and members of staff.

MT Rajah started the business in Jakarta having spent most of his working life in the moving and shipping industry. Rajah was born in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) and studied as a chartered accountant in the UK. After qualifying he joined the Fred Olsen shipping line as a divisional accountant then, in 1972, was instrumental in setting up Sequana Maritime in Kent, UK. He moved to Australia in 1986 and worked with the infamous Alan Bond for a time, then on to Singapore with Cho Yang Line and then most recently to Jakarta in 2004.

After working for a local moving company for a time Rajah started PT Kellys Express, with his wife, Ani. Today Kellys does around 1,500 moves a year worldwide. The company is an active member of IAM, PAIMA, EUROMOVERS, IMC, ERC and EuRA. After ten years the company has three warehouses, employs around 60 on-road staff and has 12 people in the office. At the party, everyone drank a toast to the next ten years, and more.
