Voice of Management

Our Industry is going through testing times and we should not get bogged down by stereo type and should think out of the box.  We must realize that some of our most important learnings have come from our failures and they have become stepping stones to our most significant successes.  We should drive the market and not be driven by it.  

To keep pace with Global standards, we embarked on our in-house training programs as we found that we internally had amongst the best and most knowledgeable trainers available in the industry.  We have conducted successful training sessions all over the country and more than 300 personnel have benefited.  The training is ongoing and will continue throughout the year as processes continuously get refined.

Our focus on projects has taken off quite well and we have handled numerous projects successfully which has helped us to maintain our bottom line.  This year our special focus will be on Africa market and we already have a Country Manager in place for this trade lane. 

Once again we are the first by introducing Service Excellence Bonus so our customers are delighted by their experience with Jeena and in this competitive environment we are confident that they use our services again and again and have an indirect loyalty program set in place.

In conclusion, it goes without saying that a committed leadership, with a vision heading in a positive direction, is vital in enabling us to achieve the objectives set by the company.  

Wishing all a very successful 2013.

Regards.
Cyrus Katgara
Partner - Jeena & Co.

It is the first of its kind in India to receive the Customs Permission for setting up an Inspection Centre which is functional within the CFS / Customs Bonded Area. This IC facility is the best in Asia compared to the existing ones operated by ASDA George currently.

Windmills

Jeena Mumbai Office successfully transported a shipment of six wind mill blades to Manchester in UK by air for M/s Free Breeze Energy Systems. Under supervision of our expert air freight team, the shipment loaded in a cage of 45 feet length was skillfully maneuvered on Cathay Pacific, who due to our excellent relationship, operated a special aircraft directly to Manchester even though it was not in their schedule.

It was the first time that such a shipment was handled at Mumbai Airport and the customer was so happy with our services that two more shipments were allotted to us, the last being 50 feet in length!

Kudos to Malcolm D'Souza, Meeraj Shaikh, Ajit Chavan, Surendra Rangnekar  and Camilo Dias and the teams from Air Exports and Customs clearance for a job well done.

Dear Mr. Malcolm,D'Souza, (Country Head - Air Freight) Mr. Harish. On behalf of the entire team at Wagner Trident , I would like to thank all of you and your teams for your assistance over the last 2 days. There is no doubt that the situation was bad to say the least and had put us in a very tight spot. But at the end of the ordeal I would rather look at the bright side of things , given the challenges the response  was very good. I must mention that the guys at the cargo complex in Bangalore headed by Mr. Mohan and his team did a exemplary job in getting the cargo cleared this morning.I hope I did not trouble Mr. Malcolm and Mr. Harish beyond what is reasonable and was required only because of the situation. Thank you once again.
Warm Regards,

Hi Jeena Team, Hope you had a festive Christmas Season. I am very pleased to share the news that we have managed to win, again for the 5th consecutive year, the Myer Best Supply Chain Supplier of the Year Award for 2012! (Link to Article on ACS website:http://www3.cargofe.com/myer-best-supply-chain-supplier-award/) This is certainly a joint effort throughout the entire supply chain for Myer, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your overseas team for the support and services provided to Myer, as well as general support for the Allport Cargo Services Group. Without your efforts, we would not be able to deliver World Class Supply Chain that Myer continues to demand through our efforts and operations. I am sure we can count on your continual support to maintain our service levels, and any areas where we can work to improve it for the upcoming years will certainly put us in good position to continually be in contention for the award, with the target to win it every year going forward! Thank you once again and please help us share this wonderful news with your team. Wishing you a Happy New Year 2013.
Thanks and regards,
Cynthia Lau

Excellent work Malcolm, (Country Head - Air Freight) Congratulations to you and your team. Special thanks to Mr, Ajith Chauvan, for bringing the truck into the airport on the same day in spite of a strike in the airport.

Dear Francis (Key Accounts Manager) I would like to thank Jeena-Tuticorin for their coordination with suppliers and handling of ASDA shipments And share my appreciation for the same. Even in situations such as now, when there has been an equipment shortage, we have not seen a shipment delay because of this reason. This is to be appreciated even more, since the absence of Senthil for the last week has hardly affected operations, even though Senthil and Srini are the key people routinely coordinating on ASDA. I am not aware of any PO in the last 6 months missing a ship window due to an operational or logistical issue. All on-time delays can be directly attributed to delayed inspection/stuffing by the supplier. Thank you Jeena- Tuticorin team for your support. And thank you Robinson for a fine team.

Dear Mr Motiwala,(Country Head, Express Division, India) It was a tough day for us today as the AC at Ahmedabad was determined to spoil our show of march ending in spite of government's thirst to accommodate trade to perform during weekend festivals and sat/sun. Full credit goes to PG (P G Patel, Branch Manager, Jeena Ahmedabad) who was equally determined to make our day :-) finally we won as a team. It would not have been possible without PG's outspoken style and in depth knowledge coupled with hard push to rattle these cult. More important is PG's young and efficient team who are always on their toes to complete each activity in time. Many Congratulations to Jeena & Co.
Best regards.

Fun & Frolic
It was the time of the year again to let our hair down and shake a leg. The staff of Mumbai offices had an uproarious time at the annual picnic held at the Shanti Sagar Resort & Waterpark, Ambernath, earlier this year.
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not touched by the frost
