In 2002 Felicity Rodgers (Founder and Creative Director) set out to reinvent what uniforms could look like. At the time, in her eyes, the industry's existing uniform providers offered the same generic options and little new in the way of design and style. Felicity used her Fashion Design background working with businesses big and small to create bespoke uniforms that truly represented their brand or venue, enhancing their customers experience.
Celebrating our 18th Birthday, we reflect and celebrate where we have come from to shape where we are today. From humble beginnings to 5 office moves, Cargo Crew has grown significantly while still housing the office, showroom and warehouse together in a 4,500sqm uniform destination in Bundoora.
TELSTRA BUSINESS AWARD WINNERS
In 2015, Cargo Crew were honoured to be the winner of the Telstra Australian Small Business of the Year Award. The prestigious awards have recognised the very best of Australian Small and Medium businesses for over 25 years.
The recognition, spotlight and platform the awards provided to help amplify our business was extraordinary for Cargo Crew, and certainly one we will never forget.
In 2016, we had the added honor of being asked to be the focus of Telstra’s Be ‘That’ Business National advertising campaign. Learn more about the Telstra Business Awards and watch the advert here.
We have always sought to work with like-minded clients who value quality design and service; as well as long term supply partners, often including other family businesses who truly have a passion for what they do. For us this means we can be confident in our relationships across our network, maintaining our ethical supply chain and ensuring we always deliver on our promises to our clients.
Why is a uniform important?
The Modern Uniform is an aesthetic; it elevates your brand and sets it apart in the ever competitive marketplace.
It speaks to professionalism, style and quality for your staff, product and service offering. A fresh look unites your team and provides brand cohesion across all locations and all staff roles.
