CSS Homeward Bound

September, 2014

A Passionate Move

A similar tale to “Homeward Bound,” a remake of a 1963 film titled “Incredible Journey”, which is  the story of two dogs and a cat who undertake an incredible journey to reunite with their owners, CSS Homeward Bound recently handled the relocation of a Havenese cross (K9) and a male cat from Kathmandu to Senegal.

Weighing 5 and 6kg’s, the pets flew in from Nepal with a stopover in Dubai for two days. Given the sensitive nature of the cargo, CSS Homeward Bound was able to expedite permissions with the Ministry of Environment and DNATA as it requires an inter-terminal transit. CSS Homeward Bound also arranged for the pets to be taken care of by the Dubai Kennels and cattery, as direct flights to Dakar are only every two days from Dubai.

CSS Homeward Bound ensured that all formalities were expedited and taken care of given the sensitive nature of the cargo before they arrived at their final destination on the 27th of June.  “Here at CSS Homeward Bound we treat your personal belongings as one of our own, and this is truly evidence of the care and consideration that the team took especially for this transfer.  This has always been our differentiating factor from other relocation companies in the region and continues to be the cornerstone of our success and loyalty with our customers,” added Suku Sudhakaran, General Manger, CSS Homeward Bound.

CSS Homeward Bound would like to thank the following  organizations for their whole hearted support and cooperation in ensuring that the pets were reunited with their owners in Senegal; Qatar Airways, Emirates Sky Cargo, DNATA, Ministry of Environment and Orient International Relocations.

The ARA Conference was held from March 7th to 9th, 2014 at the Hilton Millennium Grand Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand and included informative sessions whereby senior members of the association shared their experience and insight into the relocation industry, given their vast experience within the region.

CSS Homeward Bound on the Move in Canada

CSS Homeward Bound recently attended the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) Annual Conference, International Association of Movers (IAM) 51st Annual meeting and the Asian Relocation Association (ARA) Gala Dinner in Vancouver, Canada.
CSS Homeward Bound is a member of each association whereby its accreditation is shown in the personal effects/relocations industry.
Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) Annual Conference was held on October 4th-6th, 2013 at the River Rock Casino Hotel and Convention Centre in Richmond, British Columbia. It was the first time in almost 20 years that the conference was held outside of the Toronto area. It was the first interactive conference ever held and the first time the conference was held in partnership with another Association, the International Association of Movers. The conference consisted of the Annual General Meeting, Trade Shows, Award Dinners and Annual Committee Conference. The conference was highlighted by four panel discussions with participants from Canada’s van lines, insurance companies, CAM’s marketing committee and international moving associations.
“As there is strong expatriate community residing in the United Arab Emirates catering to the ever demanding needs of the customers is vital within our industry.  As the bi-lateral relations between Canada and the UAE have steadily strengthened over the years having a presence at CAM was truly beneficial for CSS Homeward Bound as this was an opportunity for the members of the Canadian Association of Movers based in Canada to see their international colleagues and for networking and growing business relationships mutually.  The hospitality and guidance extended to us by Mr. John Levi, President CAM and his entire team was exceptional. It was a well organized and executed annual conference,” added Suku Sudhakaran, General Manager, CSS Homeward Bound.
International Association of Movers (IAM) 51st Annual Meeting was held from October 7-10, 2013 in the beautiful city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  As this was the first time the (International Association of Movers) IAM held an Annual Meeting outside of the United States in over 20 years, the theme “IAM- A Network Expanding” underscores the Association’s efforts to expand its offerings to members and its outreach to and inclusion of other organizations and associations in the global moving and relocation arena. The chosen theme also recognized those member companies who continually meet the changes and challenges in the industry by expanding their businesses both geographically and in the services lines they offer through the reciprocal relationships they initiate with IAM colleagues at the Annual Meeting.
“CSS Homeward Bound would like to extend our special thanks to Mr. Terry Head, the President of IAM for taking the time to guide us and introducing us to key personnel at the conference and making us feeling welcome.  The IAM Networking event was a chance to meet new members, greet old friends, and schedule meetings while continuing to build upon the brand awareness for CSS Homeward Bound and the services it offers on a global platform, said, Suku Sudhakaran, General Manager, CSS Homeward Bound.
The Asian Relocation Association, held in Vancouver, as part of its annual meeting extended an invitation to all ARA members attending the IAM to join them at their exhibition booth during the trade show. CSS Homeward Bound has been an ARA member since the association’s inauguration in 2008/2009 and was able to utilize the booth during the IAM exhibition to conduct meetings and networking gatherings.  “Mr. Sudeep Shah and his team were extremely welcoming and helpful in introducing CSS Homeward Bound to other members especially during the ARA Gala Dinner; which was a networking session where we were able to put a face to the names that we had been communicating and doing business with for some time now. A special thanks to Mr. Sudeep and the entire ARA members for their valuable time and cooperation extended to CSS Homeward Bound. On the whole it was a good decision on part of the CSS Homeward Bound to participate in the conference and not only did it help establish new partnerships but also rekindle old partnerships,” added Suku Sudhakaran, General Manager, CSS Homeward Bound.

CSS Homeward Bound Attends Inauguaral WCA Relocations Conference

The WCA Relocations is the newest and fastest growing specialty network within the WCA. The group was started in mid-2012 and has already grown to over 75 member offices in 50 countries and 62 cities worldwide. The aim of the group is to provide a platform for household goods and personal effects movers to meet, build business and efficiently find partners globally. With expert partners around the world just a click away, members of the group can deal with peace of mind knowing that each member is qualified.
The WCA relocations hosted its inaugural conference on March 6-7, 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand. The event began with a networking cocktail reception with over 100 delegates and attendants. Victor Gomez, General Manager for the network said: “I am delighted with the support the membership has given this new concept. We have lots of exciting plans and benefits soon to come and the progress we have made in six months is hugely encouraging.”
CSS Homeward Bound and CSS India participated in the inaugural WCA Relocations meeting and were able to meet other members and network with them.
It is always an advantage to be part of any inaugural networking meeting of an association and especially an association as big as the WCA. “The Conference was very well organized and the highlight was the perfection in which the one to one meetings were scheduled and how the participants made a point to be present on time and get to know each other and exchange information,” added Suku Sudhakaran, General Manager, CSS Homeward Bound.
“The Conference was productive for CSS Homeward Bound firstly because of the relationships that were built with many of the members and secondly we have already been able to exchange very interesting enquiries and business strategies”, he added.
With relocations on the rise and the high demand for a strong network of specialized movers, WCA Relocations is looking to innovate and create more value and benefits for all members. An example would be the new mobile application designed to attract more business from companies relocating employees by targeting their HR managers and offering them a unique way to identify items to be shipped.  It can also be used to directly contact members for quotations and onsite surveys. The application offers multiple features for relocations companies as well giving them a means to calculate dimensions, weight and take photos of items at the click of a button. This gives users a more efficient and professional means to complete a survey.
