Straight From the Heart

Heading for an Auto vertical, we have successfully handled Ferraris and Fiats, attaining acclaim on the way and consolidating our Italian Connection. Our Ahmedabad Office has once again bagged awards in the Export categories and the women in Jeena have displayed muscle power.

With the Indian National Anthem, "Jana Gana Mana" announced the Best National Anthem in the World by UNESCO and with the historic planting of the Indian National Flag, we are understandably over the Moon!

- Ketayun S. Desai

Of Ferraris…
Ferrari, one of the top names in the Formula One circuit, embarked upon a 'Magic of India' tour beginning from Mumbai in February '08. Flagged off by Mr. Ratan Tata, Chairman, Tata Group, the two Ferrari 612 Scaglietti models - a Fiat Cinquecento and a Bravo zipped across 57 Indian cities logging 13,500-km along the way. Jeena & Company had the exclusive honour of ensuring that the cars and the equipment required for the tour passed through Customs successfully both on their arrival in India and their return to Italy.

Bond with the Best – Mr. Dara Hormusji, Branch Manager, Jeena Hyderabad with a Ferrari team member.

We also had the privilege of clearing a Ferrari F430 Scuderia for Mr. Anil Ambani, Chairman of the Reliance Group and one of India's most powerful businessmen.

And Fiats…

After the Ferrari launch, we secured the air export of 27 Linea cars manufactured by Fiat India Automobiles Pvt Ltd. Facing competition from 25 forwarders, we came up trumps and were chosen to handle this project which involved door to door service from Ranjangaon factory to Torino, Italy. After transporting them to Mumbai by a car carrier and completing all Customs formalities and DG compliances, the vehicles were handed over to Alitalia to be uplifted on their freighters twice a week. At the other end our business Partner, Saima Avendero provided the documentation to Fiat Italy's custom broker who completed the formalities after which the cars were transported by Saima to the Turin factory.

We have Designs on you…
After having acquired immense hands on experience in 3PL, we are expanding horizons with "Design Solutions" which provides value added services to our customers by giving them a unique solution to their requirements related to warehouse designing & packaging. We have been successful in stuffing 4 cars in a container instead of 3, thereby reducing the freight cost per car for a recently bagged order of Hyundai Motors. On the other hand, a major project order from Atul Auto for exports of 4500 units of 3 wheelers for Ministry of Agriculture, Nigeria under NAPEP - National Poverty Eradication Program was successfully executed by stuffing 19 vehicles in a container instead of 15.

Against All Odds
Mumbai Airfreight Office handled a very large shipment of ODC (odd dimension cargo) which consisted of four packages weighing 25.4 tons to Singapore and another package weighing 18.5 tons to Bangkok. This was the heaviest shipment handled at Mumbai Airport till date and we had to employ two special cranes to load the cargo onto the aircraft since the facilities at the airport proved to be inadequate. The single largest piece weighed 18.5 tons and only Singapore Airlines was equipped to carry it.

The Power Puff Girls.
The highlight at this year's annual picnic of the Mumbai Offices, was a 'tug of war' between the two teams who chose to call themselves "The Studs" and "The Hot Chicks" respectively. Challenging the fairer sex, the men confident of emerging winners had to taste disgraceful defeat, game after game, as the self proclaimed Studs turned out to be puny ponies totally vanquished by women power. Dragged to the ground and chomping at the bit, horse sense finally prevailed as the Studs conceded victory to the sturdy Chicks who were too hot to handle.
Cheers!
