All these years, we had a very enjoyable working relationship with CSS service and have a very pleasant cooperation which was mutually beneficial. With the help of CSS Group, we’ve been getting better feedbacks; comments from the end customers which definitely helped us expand our business in the Middle East Area.

Achievements with CSS Group

We think we made big success in Middle East with the help from CSS group. CSS provides not only professional service, but also competitive price, best attention and efficient communications which are key factors in today’s business world. I think these can be seen as the common traits between us. Also we both dislike pessimism.

CHR aligning with CSS has provided us with an excellent operational and commercial platform in a strategically important market (i.e. throughout the entire Mena region). CHR Global Forwarding offices can now better service its worldwide customer base by combining resources jointly and develop service offerings on new business and revenue opportunities.

CHR and CSS work closely together and collectively offer first class origin and destination global forwarding services and are now well positioned to enhance both entities customer base as well as compete in a much bigger arena in terms of the so called big service provider/players, already well-established and in the market place.

Whilst we as a group have been extremely busy with many company initiatives on a global scale, with regards to our Global Forwarding activities, we have relied on CSS to develop our footprint in the Middle East which we see as a very important market.

Our worldwide global forwarding offices have integrated well with the CSS, in the Mena region, as collectively CHR and CSS have been able to leverage each company’s core competencies and have combined global expertise with regional knowledge.

Achievements with CSS Group

Since our coming together CHR are delighted to have formed this alliance with CSS as they undoubtedly add value, knowledge and excellent market coverage for our global forwarding network and colleagues.

Obviously we rely on CSS for their regional knowledge and contacts combined with their network coverage in what we can consider as an extremely important region and market for us worldwide.

Like CSS, CHR are constantly looking at new markets and business opportunities in order to add value to our global offices as well as better service our customers.

We have seen some encouraging results since coming together which we all hope we can continue to build on, as we have a solid foundation in place that both CSS and CHR intend to leverage moving forward.

On the 20th anniversary

We look forward to developing more business opportunities and revenue streams in an exciting dynamic market, as well as wish the entire CSS management for their commitment and support to the CHR corporate values and developing the CHR brand and Global Forwarding business throughout the MENA region.

We congratulate CSS for achieving this milestone, 20 years in the Middle East market, and hope the next 20 years are as successful and rewarding as the last

It’s been a decade of being associated with CSS, and the journey has been one of learning, co-operating and of immense pleasure. Like in any relationship, there is a need for understanding and adjustments, and in CSS we have found partners who are not only flexible. They are pro-active, and always feel the pulse of the international shipping field. They are quick to implement any new trends that are beneficial for the growth of the organization and always abreast with new developments. In fact, with the passing years, the foresight shown by CSS is commendable, and they are now considered pioneers in the LCL/Groupage industry. Knowing Mr Kala I am very sure that he is not someone who sits on his laurels, but will keep innovating to keep achieving higher goals for not only CSS but also their partners.

Achievements with CSS Group

Looking back at the years, we feel we have grown together with CSS, and the relationship has been immensely beneficial to both our organizations. When you consider that both our organizations believe that our three main pillars for growth are “Our Staff”, “Our Customers” and “Our Partners”, it has been a smooth ride, since we think on the same levels, expect the same kind of professionalism from ourselves, and everyone associated with us.

MATHIAS BROSOWSKY

NGL- Navigator Global Logistics GmbH

Walking alongside CSS Group

It was the summer of ’96 when Mr. Kala and my path crossed the first time. Can you imagine, our first contact actually started via office phone (land line) and not like today, via cell phone. That time we had ongoing discussions on how to break into one special account. Prior to having met the first time personally, we had already talked hours over the phone and had slowly started to work together. It was somehow strange, but even via phone I felt we had been able to build up some kind of personal relationship. A few months passed and it was time to meet personally. I may be lying if I say I was not curious that time on who was actually behind that voice I had been talking to for months. My gut feeling was right, our first handshake was not only the beginning of a valuable business partnership, it was the beginning of a great friendship.

Achievements with CSS group

CSS Group is and has been a valuable partner for us. Due to the offered product portfolio and growth of CSS around the Middle East, we are able to offer our customers the full range of forwarding expertise.

Our common understanding on how to fulfill the needs of our customers on both sides has enabled us to be a competitive player in the shark pond.

On the 20th anniversary

On behalf of NGL Navigator Global Logistics, we congratulate CSS for completing 20 glorious years of success. When you began your business in 1995, there was already a healthy competition in the market, but you have been able to achieve tremendous growth by providing the best product and service to your customers and partners. A great company with great people and we all know… great people make great companies. We wish you all the success for many more years to come. And we hope to continue doing more business with you in future

Over the course of our longstanding cooperation we have not only maintained our original friendships but these have grown throughout the CSS Group and their associates worldwide. It has been a great experience to work with CSS and their global partners offering a transparent working relationship and has surely enhanced our own business. We have achieved numerous things together during our cooperation which include the expansion of our core services to cover specific markets or trade sectors that were previously outside our scope of work or general market coverage.

I believe that CSS and IFS have both expanded their business based on the requirement of satisfying the needs of our business associates and clients. With the cooperation between the Groups it has allowed us to mutually benefit from common business opportunities and work on numerous larger projects together. I feel that CSS and IFS are most similar in the way that both clients and associates are treated on a personal level. As our industry has developed over the last twenty years it is clear that systems and technology have changed our way of doing business but at the core of all of these improvements we all remember that we are fundamentally a people business.

OLIVIER BOCCARA

SAGA France

Walking alongside CSS Group

At Saga, we met Kala and CSS in Paris in 2008, and after discussions we started developing sea and airfreight business with CDG and Le Havre. But our significant development was the project cargo movement with our Marseille and Tokyo Offices. We consider that the image of CSS in the Middle East is an important asset for us in the Industrial, Oil and gas industry. Together we were able to fulfill the immediate requirements of our clients without compromising on the core values we both uphold.

Achievements with CSS Group

CSS is definitely a very professional and pro-active team and that’s why we are confident cooperating with them. Our common trait is probably the strong culture of both companies which is a major asset in our industry. We also believe in the values of trustworthiness and optimism. These could be the reason why we still have a place in our clients thoughts and hearts.

On the 20th Anniversary

I wish the CSS family to pursue its dynamic development and to prosper while retaining its core value in the years to come also.
