Straight From the Heart

Ranking first amongst National Forwarders, handling India’s fastest selling Jeeps and playing different ball games altogether, we have gone through a whole gamut of achievements, adding trophies and awards to our ever increasing collection. We are modest and proud of it.

And with saddened hearts, we pay our homage to Mr. V R Naik who served Jeena faithfully and dedicatedly for the better part of his life and even years after retirement, thought, breathed and lived Jeena. Old soldiers never die, they just fade away and memories continue to linger. As we bid a final goodbye to him, we once again acknowledge his incalculable contributions to the Company and pray that his soul rests in eternal peace.

- Ketayun S. Desai

Obituary


  Mr. V. R. Naik
(15.07.1929 – 25.08.2007)
Mr. Vasudev Rajaram Naik joined Jeena Mumbai in 1958 as an Assistant Accountant. Five years later he was sent to Delhi Office on a special mission to audit the books of accounts. The rest is history and paving the path for Jeena’s success in the years to come, he officially retired in 1993 as General Manager, Jeena Delhi. A friend, philosopher & guide, revered & respected by one & all, Mr. Naik was an exemplary Manager, discharging his responsibilities without fear or favour. With Jeena being his raison d’être & not content to rest on his laurels, he chose to take up the onerous task of scrutinizing the all India Jeena Accounts, post retirement, resolving many an issue with his agile acumen. After serving the Organization for close to five decades, he finally settled down to spending his well deserved retirement years with his dutiful wife who had always been supportive to his dedication to work. Up until his untimely demise on 25th August 2007 at the age of 78 years, Mr. Naik had Jeena very much at heart and fondly reminisced about the years spent with the Company. A man of principles, he had enlightened & enriched many a mind & soul & will certainly be sorely missed at Jeena.

  • Dear Adil, (Mumbai Airport Office),
    Your team has been doing wonderful job of air clearances for our company. However clearance of current shipment of 3 HAWB from Italy is icing on the cake. The shipment was to land on Wednesday (10th October) and we were pressurizing you for clearance by today (12th October). However due to heavy backlog, Swissair offloaded the consignment – after confirming booking - at origin (Zurich). Instead of 10th, the consignment landed on 11th night, but then also you and your team has been able to give us delivery today – time taken for clearance being less than a day!!!!! We understand that this cannot be done for every shipment, but this was simply superb. We have been able to fulfill our commitment to the Brand Team of delivering the goods for The Grand Event. Thanks a lot. Kudos to you and Jeena Air Imports team for a job well done.

Regards,
Vivek Whig, Murjani Group.

  • Hi Pritesh,
    I must commend your staff in Mumbai on the rapid response and assistance for subject container /seal discrepency with Indian Customs. On Oct 22nd at 1:30 am (EST) I called Mr. Vijay Thakare Emirates Line Operations representative in Mumbai on his cellular phone the call went unanswered and in minutes I received a call back from Mr. Vijay Thakare with a solution to fix seal number discrepency with our associate forwarder in Mumbai Jeena & Co. This was critical for us as an Engineering team was from New York and waiting at final destination Chandrapur, Maharastra to install the contents of the container. Never in my 30 years of being in the logistics industry have I experience such excellent service. Mr. Vijay Thakare and Mr. Bharat Panchal and their Emirates team in India and the US must be commended .A Sincere thank you to all.

Regards,
Norman Coelho, President and Operations Director,

Survival of the Fittest
Two guys were hiking through the jungle when they spotted a tiger that looked both hungry and fast. One of the guys reached to his bag and pulled out a pair of Nike shoes.

His friend looked at him "Do you really think those shoes are going to make you run faster than that tiger?"

“I don't have to run faster than that tiger”, his friend replied. "I just have to run faster than you".
Wishing All Our Readers A Happy And Prosperous 2008
