Bermuda Forwarders is a third generation family company established in 1955 by W. H. "Winky" Kempe who began his career as a H. M. Customs' officer. His son Toby took over in 1982 after working for 4 years in Boston with a relocator. At the company's 60th anniversary, Toby works alongside his wife Nancy and two his children, Nicholas and Abigail.

With each generation, Bermuda Forwarders has grown and added new services for its customers. Winky was at the forefront consolidating shipments when containerization came to the island in 1975. Toby started the first data storage centre on the island in 1988. The company has also grown with acquisitions of Bermuda Transfer and Storage in 1981 and then Globe Forwarding in 1997.

The entire Bermuda Forwarders team look forward to continuing to offer Bermuda innovative vertical logistics solutions for the decades to come.
