Voice of Management

The new financial year has begun with the formation of a new stable government at the center raising hopes and expectations in the people of India. The biggest impact of this change is the return of confidence, both for foreign and domestic investors. We are going to witness a quantum growth in business opportunities in the coming months. The 115 projects in the core and infrastructure sectors, which are stranded due to various reasons, are going to get a new lease of life. Revival of these large projects is going to have trickling effect on the downstream large and medium industries.

We will be seeing a lot of opportunities knocking at our doors during this financial year which we should translate into business.

This year would go down in the history of Jeena as a landmark year. Two interrelated initiatives were unveiled.  

One “Service Excellence” project, had not only had a dramatic improvement of our services and turnaround time but also reduced the customer escalations substantially. The hard work of all the people including corporate teams and the Branch operational teams have borne sweet fruit and more to come.

Two, this year was also the occasion to reinvent our brand image to match renewed service experience of the customers as a token of re-assurance that we care for their business.  It is not just visible in our logos, business cards and visible signs but also in customer experience as a renewed company with a focus on customer centric approach.

Regards,
Cyrus Katgara

Precious Cargo
Our Mumbai Air Export department successfully handled a shipment of pharmaceutical generic product under DEEC scheme for M/s. Lupin Limited. The shipment weighing 32 tons consisted of 72 pallets and was valued at INR 965 million. The entire operation of this time bound, high value shipment was completed within two working hours, right from taking vehicles inside the cargo complex, getting the cargo offloaded at cold storage, getting ADC clearance, customs registration, examination, LEO and then handing it over to the airline GSA. Needless to say, the efficiency of our clearance team in clearing such a huge shipment within such a short span of time and that too well within the regulatory frame work, was much appreciated.

Slip Sheets
Our Mumbai team carried out a new initiative during a recent PICK And PACK operation executed for one of our customers, using Slip Sheets instead of Wooden Pallets during Cargo palletization. This initiative makes us the first Indian Forwarder to have carried out this activity with our own ‘Slip Sheeting Push & Pull’ Equipment within a Customs Bonded CFS. Cost effectiveness, zero discrepancies and 100% accuracy are some of the benefits derived from this product by textile customers and those having light volume loads.

It has been the family endeavor to fulfill the Late Mr. Adi Jehangirji Katgara’s dream to set up an educational institute in the Gholvad – Bordi area in Gujarat and we are pleased to announce that Katgara Polytechnic Institute has been set up in partnership with Gokhale Education Society, leaders in the field of education, having its roots in Bordi since 1920.

The Polytechnic Institute provides five streams of three year Engineering Diploma Courses for Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The Gokhale Education Society presently educates 8,000 students at their campus in Bordi and the Institute will have an additional 900 students who will hopefully make great contributions to society in the years to come.

Ode to an Indian Custom Broker
An Indian Custom Broker Stood at the heavenly gates, His face was scarred and old. He stood before the man of fate for admission to the fold.

‘What have you done,’ St Peter asked, ‘To gain admission here?’ ‘I’ve worked in India as a CHA sir,’ ‘For many and many a year.’

The pearly gates swung open wide, St Peter touched the bell. ‘Come in and choose your harp,’ he said. ‘You’ve had your share of hell!’

 
Our minds are gardens, our thoughts, our seeds.
It is up to us to harvest, either flowers or weeds.

Dear Mr. Radhakrishnan, Thank you for the email and details. We have received the material in good condition. I am extremely happy to note that, we are so happy about the way you and your team handled our cargo even though it was a small one. However, we would also like to place on record that, it was a very good experience dealing with you personally (though we haven't met!) and with your team and the service was far better than others whom we have dealt with before. Definitely hope to do further business with you in the near future. Please convey our regards and thanks to your team and Mr. Venkiteswaran in particular for all the support. Wish you and your company all the very best. Thanks and regards, Binno - ACE SYSTEMS, Cochin.
