Voice of Management

We come to end an eventful year.

When we look back at the events of this year we see that it has been a tough year from the point of view of the volumes of business.

Top
 
We are the Best

Schnellecke Group AG and CO. KG, headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany was formed in 1939 and has evolved into being a Global leader in the field of Automotive Logistics, assembly of Critical Automobile parts and limited Production of certain Auto Components for Volkswagen. Their main focus is Implant Logistics in various Automobile plants worldwide.

Notably the achievements have been a significant improvement of Jeena image with our overseas partners and our large local customers and we have got some of the well known brands such as GM and Skoda appreciating Jeena capability and professionalism, besides our long standing partner Fedex.

In the current global scenario the challenges are going to be manifold but the good news is that our teams are fully geared to meet the toughest challenges that the rest of the industry may even shudder to think.

Hot Wheels

We have successfully handled an assignment of transporting a Lamborghini from Mumbai to New York for Mr. Gautam Singhania, Chairman and Managing Director of the Raymond group, one of India's largest branded fabric and fashion retailers and a global conglomerate.

Our Air Export team did an excellent job of clearing the car in one and a half hour's time at the Cargo Complex. The car was transported with Emirates who due to our excellent relationship with them, especially flew down a load master from Dubai to supervise the loading operations, considering the importance and value of the car.

The Lamborghini clicked inside the airport during custom clearance. Indeed the mark of a complete man!

We also pleased to announce that we also cleared a Ferrari for none other than Mr. Ratan Tata, Chairman of Tata Group. The car was a New Year's memento to him from M/s. Ferrari, Italy.

Pick and Pack

Mumbai Sea freight Division of Jeena and Company has done a remarkable job by very successfully completing the Sainsbury's Pick and Pack activity, the first of its kind ever to be handled in India. Moreover, the complete operation was done in a CFS (bonded area) which itself is another first.

The infrastructure and space coupled with handling capabilities were one of our main challenges and we achieved this activity in just 11,000 sq ft of warehouse space as against the area of 25,000 to 40,000 sq ft as is being done currently in China. Although all containers leaving Welspun were factory sealed and dispatched as CY/CY containers, duly central excise cleared, we directly gated in these containers at the CFS itself instead of taking them to a separate warehouse for the pick and pack activity, palletizing them and then bringing them to the CFS.

This plan of action was suggested by Jeena to Allport/Sainsbury's in order to save them huge costs towards local transportation and multiple handling. Here too Jeena has played a very important role by giving their expert guidance of having these shipments sent in containers and not in open trucks as these containers were also used as storage devices.

We place on record our sincere appreciation for the commitment and determination of Mr. Khushrow Major, Chief Operating Officer and his entire team headed by Ronnie Anklesaria. Alongwith them, Jitendra Popat, Vijay Thakkar, Rajesh Gupta, Kalpesh Rele, Vithal, Ali Khan, Sarjerao Kasid, Kumar Pawaskar, Ananta Pilane, Laxmikant Bhangade, Satish More, Chandrakant Hunde also put in long hours every single day to ensure 99.97 % accuracy and completing the job well in just 10 days as against the original schedule of three weeks. It would not be out of place to mention that though Rajesh Gupta, lost his dear father, he was back on duty the following day after performing the last rites. Our sincere gratitude to Mr. Vijay Madlani of Sainsbury's, Mr. Phil Sugden of Allport and Mr. Cordon of Cargo Services for their valued guidance, support and assistance to make this project successful.

Perfect Host
We have developed a HOST to HOST link with Emirates thereby sending MAWB/HAWB data electronically to the airline due to which, the status of shipment is automatically received by us. We are of course, the first Indian Forwarder to have implemented this successfully with Emirates.

A HOST to HOST link has also been developed between Jeena and TRAXON, a service provider for various airlines. The MAWB/HAWB data is sent to various airlines through TRAXON as gateway. We are again the first Indian Forwarder to have achieved this.

Words of Appreciation
Dear Mr. Katgara, Good Morning. I would like to update you and extend my heartiest appreciation to your team in Mumbai who have made this implementation a success. Jeena is the first Indian forwarder who's been implemented for host to host connection by Traxon office in India. There are 7 other MNC forwarders in India who are on host to host connection but all have been implemented from their HQ in Europe. We would like to take this learning and step ahead in simplifying the procedure of EDI connectivity with other Indian forwarders. I would like to once again thank you and your team for this joint effort. Wish you a good day.
Thanks and best regards,
                                                                                                                                                                           Puneet Chaturvedi,

Ms.Deepti, Ms.Neeru, (Jeena Delhi), I wish to write a quick note praising the work of Hemant (Manchanda)when dealing with Allport, in particular consignments for Pets At Home.

We appreciate Hemant's efforts and look forward to a similar service level in future!
