I'm representing a Pet Relocation Agency based in California USA.
A little background on our business activties: We assist our clients with paperwork and veterinary procedures to get their pets to travel both domestically and internationally. 50% of the work is physical. the other 50% is on client relations, relocation project management and research.
We're looking for a admin to work on a research project. This can extend into a long term arrangement extending into other administrative part of the company's processes.
The research project we currently need assistance on:
We're in the midst of contacting the various airline's cargo department to obtain the following information
1) If they are currently flying pets at the moment (due to Covid)
2) Any restrictions on the plane type (depending on the plane model, some planes have height restrictions or lack of a temperature controlled hold for pet travel)
3) Whether the airline allows for direct booking or require registration as a preferred shipper or usage of a 3rd party broker.
4) Who is the preferred 3rd party broker to contact.
5) N-rate (cost of freight)
This is can also be achieved by contacting the various freight forwarding companies in USA to obtain the following:
1) Are they familiar and willing to work on AVI (live animal) transport with a pet relocation agency.
2) Are they able to broker Airway Bills for us with the airlines.
3) What are the airlines they are bonded with (We would not prefer to use them if they have to yet go through another forwarding company to obtain the AWB (too many middle man slows the process)
You'll note that the above is practically all phone calls with a little data entry to record the findings.
Let us know if you might be interested.
We are also look for a VA (After this project) to work on the following basis.
1. Emails (to scan through and alert us if there are pertinent emails during the work day) - we are sometimes on the road and do not wish to miss sales inquiries or urgent agent correspondences.
2. Social media management. Uploading of pictures with nice captions.
