Unflappable Nalin In Australia

Nalin Rodrigo
  We ran into our friend Nalin Rodrigo, who we first met on Dubai Creek some years ago when he was fronting the cargo fortunes of SriLankan Cargo from his offices in Colombo.
  Nalin, an all-cargo pro, was always completely unflappable, energetic and a great air cargo dreamer and doer.
  That kind of ‘attitude over altitude’ was always good, especially at SriLankan Cargo that had the unfortunate position, during Nalin’s tenure, of getting grounded every time the Sri Lankan Tamil Tigers decided to target transportation as a way of getting at the government back in the old days, now thankfully long gone.
  We recall once when the Tigers actually blew up some of the SriLankan fleet on the ground leaving the airline with a USD$400 million insurance check and a quick scramble to find some airplanes.
  Nalin, of course was his usual levelheaded self throughout his Sri Lankan tenure and kept the cargo both, moving and growing.
  Today Nalin is living in New South Wales, Australia in between assignments, having just completed an eight-year stint as head of cargo at Air Niugini.
  “I’d like to continue expanding logistics in Asia either with an airline or consultancy firm in Australia or elsewhere in Asia,” unflappable Nalin smiled.
