Our History

Spedition Services Limited (SSL) is a transport and logistics provider offering solutions to industry towards challenging markets.  Established in December 1990 in the United Kingdom by Jens Rastorp who had been working in the USSR since 1973. A year later Jens was joined by Yasmin Fazal.  Jens played a pivotal part in teaching his protégé Yasmin about the workings of the then USSR and the current Russian Federation, so strong was their commitment to the service industry they captured interest from some of the worlds’ largest companies who till today remain long term clients.  Over the years Yasmin earned an increasing shareholding in SSL and after the sad passing of her mentor and partner in 2014, she became the new sole owner of SSL. 

 

In line with our growth, Yasmin was joined by Cormac Tracey in 2016 as Director of Strategy. Cormac hails from a corporate background in logistics and supply chain and brought with him roughly 20 years of global experience. Cormac is managing our logistics centres/activities in Belgium, Finland, Poland and Russia.

 

In more recent years, SSL has expanded and now has 8 offices in 5 countries! We have continued to build long lasting relationships and are consistently expanding our growing network of suppliers. This network of offices and partners provides you with a complete range of logistics services tailor made to your needs including development of software for specific projects.
