Business excellence award for CSS


The Best International Logistics & Freight Forwarding Firm 2018 award

CSS Group was honored with Best International Logistics &Freight Forwarding Firm 2018 award constituted by MEA Markets. MEA Markets is a quarterly publication dedicated to researching and publicizing the major moves and events as they happen across the entire Middle East and African regions.

Since its inception in 1995 CSS Group has become a renowned name in the freight forwarding industry, and today it is one of the leading integrated freight forwarding solutions provider with close to 25 years of experience.
Constantly adapting to its customers’ changing needs, the company has enriched its expertise to become a tier-one logistics and freight forwarding partner in the GCC, with integrated logistic networks in Africa, Middle East, Europe and the Americas. Headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the CSS Group is spearheaded by its Chairman T. S. Kaladharan.

The company, through its corporate diversity and willingness to keep learning and relearning, has earned its collective experience within the industry. With a team consisting of over 750 experienced and dedicated professionals across 20 locations, the CSS Group is able to meet a client’s freight forwarding requirements: be it by sea, land or air.

In today’s market, the UAE and GCC have become a hub for companies originally based in the UAE and China, for instance. The CSS Group being the strongest in the Middle East, has had a head start in this regard. Its strong relationship with customers, as well as being a one-stop solution, has given them comfort in knowing they are in great hands.

To support clients in this fast paced corporate hub, CSS understands the need to constantly evolve and change. The team have to keep moving, study the market and ensure that they are, in terms of logistics, up to date. Thanks to this focus on constant improvement, alongside its vast industry experience, the group has a built an exceptional reputation, especially with UAE customs.

Alongside its focus on industry developments, technology is also a key focus for the group. The CSS Group has been investing in the use of technology since its commenced operations, as the Chairman and founder saw how big technology would play a part in the future of this industry. The group developed its own software, now known as FINS, more than 10 years ago that it is constantly improving on, based on new requirements.

As part of this approach, the group’s IT team constantly reads, explores, and carries out R&D with, say, CRM and budget reports. During all its international business visits, the group brings back best practices from every location that it interacts with, exploring whether any of this can implemented in the group’s current structure.
For instance, when it comes to 3PL, CSS Group tailors its in-house software around what the customer wants. Even if they say they would like to see reports or data through software of their own, the group integrates it with theirs, to ensure an easy, hassle free experience for every client.

Ultimately, CSS Group’s ongoing focus is to become the one-stop solution for its customers that not only cover B2B but also B2C. To achieve this, the group has further expansions across Asia planned. Additionally, the team are keen to support their customers through their entire cargo cycle, from production to delivery and distribution. This includes spare parts, Yacht and Marine, Hospitality and Hotel Logistics as well as Auto logistics divisions. Driving these changes and growing in these areas will offer the group many exciting opportunities to grow and flourish over the coming years.

Abu Dhabi Ship Building Sees Second Highest Ever Profits


Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) has managed to break through the AED 100-million barrier with its second-highest profits in history for the year ended December 31st.

During 2017, ADSB re-branded its market position, and continued to build on the momentum from all operational segments, according to a statement from Khaled Al Mazrouei, CEO, ADSB.

In his statement, Al Mazrouei called attention to the improved financial position of the company, including increased gross profit (from AED 256.1 million in 2016 to AED 277.1 million in 2017), and increased net profit (from AED 61.3 million in 2016 to AED 104.8 million in 2017).

These results were mainly driven by the increased scope of the awarded Marine Support Services contract, which covers a period of three years (until January 2020), and cost efficiencies within existing Ship Build projects. Furthermore, efforts to expand into oil and gas fields significantly accelerated in 2017.

In terms of operations, the company implemented changes to drive a more effective and efficient organization. This included operational changes in the Ship Build (Naval Ship Building and Small Boats Construction), and Services (Marine Support Services, Naval/Commercial MRO, and Oil & Gas) sectors.

Console shipping services India at WCA Conference

WCA has seen record attendance figures at its first ever WCA Conference Week in the Middle East region. The seven-day event, which took place from 10-16 March 2016 in Abu Dhabi in the UAE, was attended by 2,585 members, representing 1,358 companies from over 100 countries.
Console Shipping Services India Pvt. Ltd. (CSS India) attended the conference and was represented by Jairam K R, Director, CSS India. WCA is the world’s largest and most powerful network of independent freight forwarders, with over 6,056 member offices in 186 countries worldwide.
“WCA provides ample space to interact with the agents globally and discuss new concepts and concerns of the Logistics industry. Being the first time in the Middle East, WCA attracted delegates both from the east and the west equally. CSS India has great benefits in being at the WCA conference and we enjoy networking here”, commented Jairam K R.
Dan March, WCA’s new Chief Executive Officer, said of the restructured schedule, bringing together the 18th Annual and 8th Worldwide Conference: “The new format of a combined plenary session, one-on-one meetings and gala awards dinner has been a great success. Not only does this allow us to reduce the conference duration by a day – saving all delegates time and money – but it also provides even more interaction and business opportunities for attendees of both conferences.”
Important member benefit announcements were made during the plenary session, including the formal launch of Consol2Xchange, the network’s new consolidation exchange platform where members can search, negotiate, sell and purchase consols online.
Additionally, WIN – a platform that, traditionally, cost members to connect with agents, brokers and carriers – is now exclusively free for members through to the end of this year.
WCA also announced a new initiative to help members become proactive leaders armed for a future in e-commerce logistics.  David Yokeum, who will head up WCA’s newly, formed Supervisory Board as Chairman, said: “By 2020 it is projected that freight forwarding will be 20 per cent e-commerce driven. Therefore, we feel compelled to become heavily involved and are working hard to develop e-commerce tools for our members.”
