Voice Of Management
Jeena & Company has once again displayed resilience and strength by bucking the trend of slowdown and gloomy economic scenario posting a very strong growth in the previous year. We have been able to achieve the unprecedented 3rd position in the IATA ranking which is our best performance till date. It has been achieved in a very tough and challenging scenario of global recession and slowdown in Asian economies.

We have taken some proactive and long term steps to strengthen our International network by placing an Indian representative in China by tying up with one of the largest Chinese logistics companies named Cargo Services. Mr. Zubin Davar, Jeena delegate to China will be taking up this responsibility from July 2009.

This partnership will also cover another important market like Hong Kong.

We will also be the first Indian company to place a delegate in Europe and we are happy to announce that this responsibility will be shouldered by none other than our European looking - Hector Patel.

Relations between Port Of Halifax and Jeena & Company have added a new dimension in their endeavor by forging a Sister Port MOU with Port Of Halifax and Chennai Port. It will herald a new area of mutual understanding.

In keeping tune with the fast changing market scenario we have embarked on the restructuring of the organizational structure by accommodating new Industry vertical concepts in our marketing framework headed by Mr. Ramesh Mehra as Chief Marketing Officer-India. Mr. Ramesh Mehra has a vast experience of heading Crompton Greaves as their Vice President overseeing 400 personnel. We wish him all the best for this challenging change.

Regards,
Cyrus Katgara
Partner-Jeena & Co.
