Summer Move

Make it simple

Moving locally or internationally can be an exciting process, but when you are in hot & humid summer weather, the move can become stressful, uncomfortable & frustrating. Summer poses its own challenges and most people know how daunting it can be, but if you plan ahead and create a blue print for your move, the transition will go smoothly.


Make sure you choose a licensed mover with accreditation and experience in summer moving. To avoid mishaps, book the movers early, as you may have a hard time finding any that are available, this is especially true if you need the move to take place on a weekend on the 1st or end of the month.


Ideally, try to schedule on a weekday. It might be good idea to move in the middle of the month – as the beginning and the end of summer month are undoubtedly the busiest time to move. So as you won’t have as hard of a time renting moving trucks or dealing with crowded elevators.


Ensure you make your move during the early mornings of late evening to avoid harsh weather. While contracting the movers itself this needs to be confirmed. Overnight packing makes it easier to move during the early hours of the day.


Try to beat the heat during this process, Even if you hire movers you will still be doing some walking and standing in the heat, so keep yourself hydrated. Stock plenty of water, freeze towels to put around your neck, and wear lightweight, moisture materials.


Crack the air-conditioning, there’s nothing more relieving than stepping into a cool apartment and out of hot weather. Make your summer move much more bearable by turning on the air-conditioning as soon as you get there, this way you don’t have to sweat while you’re unpacking.

DP World – Most Outstanding Performance 2013

At the end of last year it was with great pride that DP World received the country’s highest business accolade, the prestigious Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award for Most Outstanding Performance for 2013.

The award was presented by His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, to His Excellency Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World.

The UAE has succeeded in becoming a role model of excellence for the world. Clear policies of innovation in all fields have strengthened the UAE’s position as a role model and leader. Based on this the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Awards were devised to provide additional support to the private sector and to stimulate outstanding performance across the UAE. The path to economic growth and prosperity requires creativity, innovation and excellence across all sectors.

The Award not only recognises organisations with exceptional performance strategies but also aims to increase the understanding and implementation of business excellence.

DP World has always been guided and inspired by the vision of His Highness; therefore the award serves as a reminder that we are headed in the right direction as a company and as a contributor to the economic development of the region. DP World’s Vision, Mission and Values played a key role in winning the award, which have been created in line with strategic vision for Dubai and the UAE.


Sustainable value through global growth, service and excellence


A global approach to a local business environment where excellence, innovation and profitability drive our core business philosophy of exceptional customer service

Our Values

  • Commitment to our people and our customers
  • Profitable global growth
  • Responsible corporate and personal behavior
  • Excellence and innovation

Our Mission of a global approach to a local business environment where excellence, innovation and profitability drive our core business philosophy of exceptional customer service correlates directly with the framework of MRMBA. For this reason, the award carries an extra significance as it is a reflection of our core Vision, Mission and Values.

One of the primary reasons to apply for the award was to measure ourselves against peers in the region. Part of this is to ascertain how we are progressing as a company and in what areas we can improve, to better serve our customers.  Participation in MRMBA allows us to evaluate aspects and functions of our business, which in turn continues to foster new innovations and better ways of serving our customers.

For us, innovation and implementation of new technology is important in the way we serve our customers and offer efficiencies that allow us to be port of choice for the region. Innovations can only come to fruition through collaboration with all our stakeholders at various levels. Recently we have made DP World services accessible on Dubai Trade’s mobile website in order to better increase efficiencies for our customers. The mobile friendly website will allow customers to have access to DP World UAE Region services round the clock at their convenience. It is challenges faced by our stakeholders that breed new innovations and in turn help DP World offer new ways of doing business.

DP World, since its inception has embarked on a journey to innovate and offer services that are in the best interest of the customers and are anchored by Dubai’s true place as a trading hub. Winning the award in 2013 is a great achievement for everyone associated at DP World, but it’s just part of a continuous process in increasing excellence, innovation and profitability that drive our core business philosophy of exceptional customer service. This award inspires us to aim for even higher standards of service thereby keeping us at the forefront of progress.

History of Containerisation

The history of trade dates back thousands of years before containerisation. People traded across oceans and lands, sailing the world in search of various goods and commodities that their countries did not have, everything from traded food, jewels and materials to new treasures.

Shipping before 1850 was difficult, expensive, and irregular, dominated by wooden ships using sails propelled only by wind. Later, the development of steamships made transportation cheaper and less risky. Getting goods on and off ships has historically been a bottleneck. A large part of the cost of international trade was taking the cargo off the ship, sorting it out, and dealing with the pilferage that took place along the way. Therefore the advent of containerisation brought about a massive transformation.

Containerisation has its origins in early coal mining regions in England from the late 18th century onwards. By the 1830s, railroads on several continents were carrying containers that could be transferred to other modes of transport. Before World War II, US, British and French railway companies experimented with methods of sealing goods in different sizes and shapes of boxes before transporting them. However, lack of specialised equipment like cranes for loading and unloading cargo combined with resistance from unions made it difficult for the development of container shipping till 50’s.

During World War II, the United States used specialised containers to speed the loading and unloading of transport ships. These reusable containers were used for shipping household goods of officers.

In 1955, former trucking company owner Malcom McLean worked with engineer Keith Tantlinger to develop the modern intermodal container. The challenge was to design a shipping container that could efficiently be loaded onto ships and held securely on long sea voyages. The result was an 8 ft. tall by 8 ft. wide box in 10 ft. long units constructed from 2.5 mm of thick corrugated steel. The design incorporated a twist lock mechanism atop each of the four corners, allowing the container to be easily secured and lifted using cranes. On April 26th 1956, McLean put 58 containers on board a refitted tanker ship, SS Ideal X and sailed them from Newark to Houston.

The immediate result of the first US container journey was a substantial saving in the cost associated with moving cargo piece by piece from truck or railcar from the warehouse, onto the ship, and then unloading at the destination port, to the warehouse and then again on the truck or railcar. Containerisation revolutionised this multiple handling of cargo by increasing port labor productivity through mechanised loading and unloading of containerised cargos.

The 1956 container operation by the Ideal X involved a ship and cranes that were designed for other purposes. Three years later the industry saw additional savings through the building of purpose-built container cranes followed by the large purpose-built containerships.

From a transportation technology perspective, containerisation resulted in the introduction of intermodal freight transport, since the shipment of a container can use multiple modes of transportation -ship, rail or truck- without any handling of the freight when changing modes.

It was a logical next step that container sizes could be standardised so that they could be most efficiently stacked and so that ships, trains, trucks and cranes at the port could be specially fitted or built to a single size specification. This standardisation eventually spread across the global industry.

To realise intermodal cargo transport, all areas of the transport chain had to been integrated. It was not simply a question of putting cargo in containers. The ships, port terminals, trucks and trains had to been organised and adapted to handle the containers.

In 1956, the UN Economical Commission for Europe defined a container transport unit with characteristics later reformulated by ISO – as a transport equipment of permanent character suitable for repeated use, designed to suit multiple modes of car without having to restuff, fitted with devices permitting its ready handling, particularly its transfer from one mode of transport to another, designed to be easy to fill and empty, having an internal volume of 1m3 (35.3 ft.3) or more’.

These containers were only a box of different sizes. It was only in 1970 that the sizes were standardised. The 20-foot container, referred to as a twenty-foot commodities equivalent unit (TEU) became the industry standard reference with cargo volume and vessel capacity now measured in TEU. The 40-foot length container – literally 2 TEU – became known as the Forty-foot Equivalent Unit (FEU) and is the most frequently used container today even though the industry primarily refers to handling and capacity by TEU.

Various types of specialised container types also emerged over time, notably the ‘reefer’ for temperature controlled cargoes and various types of equipment capable of unitising odd sized (OOG), heavy cargoes, as well as liquefied commodities.

Containerisation gave birth to a new era of improved efficiencies – meaning that the ships spent less time in ports, had shorter transit times, used less labour and increased customer efficiencies since they could meet stock requirements on time. The containers also reduced damage and pilfering and also made documentation easier.

Since the 1950’s, containerships have evolved tremendous , from the Ideal X’s to 3000 TEU capacity vessels in 70’s, 4,000 in 80’s, 7,000 in 90’s, 16000 TEU vessels currently sailing.

The need for even greater efficiency and capacity has led to the next generation of mega ships – the Triple E’s; which will come into service this month capable of carrying 18,000 TEU – three times as many as the biggest container ships 15 years ago.

CaroTrans and Middle East NVO, The CSS Group, Mark One Year Anniversary with 40% Volume Growth

– Comprehensive network and best in class services provide basis for continued growth –

Clark, New Jersey / Dubai, UAE August 22, 2012 – CaroTrans, a leading global NVOCC (Non vessel operating common carrier) and ocean freight consolidator, and alliance partner The CSS Group, (Consolidated Shipping Services Group), today announced a successful first year marked by significant volume growth of 40%.

“To tweet or not to tweet?” – This is the question. Is it better to tweet and risk inadvertently undermining your companies potential and prospects or better not to tweet and lose an easy opportunity to build up social relationships with an ever expanding network of friends, clients and potential opportunities? This dilemma, especially in the workplace, is exercising the minds of many executives.

“Tweeting” is the faster example of Internet social networks but other favourites from amongst many; include “Face book”, “MySpace”, “BlogSpot” “LinkedIn” and “YouTube”. Their growth has developed so quickly that it has taken many businesses by surprise. The “X” generation (born between 1960 – 1980) are statistically not as Internet active as the “Y” generation (born between 1980 – 2000) but both are somewhat put into the social networking shade by the “ADD” generation (born since 2000). In this younger group “ADD” is used to associate them, rather unkindly, with “attention deficit disorder”. However this comparison highlights a view that they are use to instant updates, responses and interaction. It also means that if stuck for information they readily use the Internet as a workplace tool to find resources for information.

A progressive company therefore needs to assess the potential risks and advantages of social networking because it is with us now and growing exponentially. On the downside, there is a real risk that access to the web might enable malware, spyware and other virus style programmes to enter a company’s network as well as postings inadvertently disclosing information of value to competitors. These threats cannot be ignored. Another downside, if you add up the potential hours an employee might spend checking their “facebook”, “myspace” or “LinkedIn” postings and profiles etc., is the time spent on such activities rather than actually working.

Equally though the upside is that workplace social networking, when used responsibly, provides an inexpensive way of keeping in touch and developing business relationships and spotting new opportunities. However many choose to be members of social networks by choosing a name which expresses their personalities. Whilst “Crazy Jane” and “Raving Robbo” might be good for normal “twitter” chat it will not be appropriate to use it within the workplace as it may well detract from the required corporate image. “Crazy Jane” and “Raving Robbo” must be careful not to forget that their bosses may also be reading their postings!

Whilst my personal view is that workplace social networking provides a challenging opportunity, it is fairly easy to find experts queuing up to disagree.  More recent research is beginning to support the view that employees who are allowed to use the Internet, to contact family and friends especially during breaks, usually return to their workspaces more refreshed. Furthermore current information indicates that companies who deploy the best and most effective means of communication succeed better. Indeed there are now numerous Human Resources departments who use social networking to keep employees up to date. Information, contact, meetings and other activities within a company are communicated through social networking. Companies may effectively save on training by utilising the fact that so many “X”, “Y” and “ADD” generation employees know how to use social networking.

However an acceptance of such an approach means that there has to be clear policies as to how workplace social networking may or may not be used. Naturally there have been problems, as with any new technology, but there is no question in my mind that where companies have embraced the newest Internet opportunities they have benefited over those who have not. The challenge for a company is to find a way to defend against adverse intrusions whilst at the same time fostering employee responsibility and productivity. So whilst “Crazy Jane” and “Raving Robbo” should not be used, given appropriate names and a responsible approach then you may reach the same conclusion as I do and “tweet”. Ultimately, success in this challenge rests with YOU.

An optimistic CSS Kolkata

If you ask about recession or economic crack down to a common man, roaming through the streets of Kolkata, he may ask you back, “What is that?” The entire world has been talking about recession, but many are reluctant to admit that it has hit India. Console Shipping Services, Kolkata may unfold some facts and figures to convince you that business has not become stagnant. CSS Kolkata management and staff takes pride for being considered as one amongst the first three players, in terms of business by the shipping fraternity in their region. A result they achieved only because of hard work and commitment.

Arup Ray, Director- CSS India says that they give priority to start their own warehousing facility in the near future to bring in total solution for servicing their clients. Kolkata is a region where the CSS Management eagerly looks at in this regard. Presently CSS India from its operational base in Kolkata caters to the need of the entire West Bengal region, Orissa, Tripura and Assam. They extend their servicing to the neighboring countries of Nepal and Bhutan as well. “The only way to penetrate the interiors and some remote locations in the North Eastern region is to have a strong and efficient transportation network. Concur service is available in some parts but it only depends upon the load factor and it cannot guarantee timely service” Arup Ray adds. There is a rise of 5 to 7 % in the cargo movement in Kolkata. The timely intervention by the government authorities and the port ensures a steady growth of cargo movement.

For the Kolkata Port management, tariff flexibility was not the only strategy. It worked towards attracting new types of cargo that would also give a boost to the economy of its hinterland. For instance, it found out that West Bengal had an annual surplus of 2.5 million tons of vegetables and flowers, and they were routed for export to Singapore, Far East, Middle East and European markets which would otherwise had gone to waste or be sold in the domestic market at a negligible price. Another such move was to create special linkages with ports in Chittagong and Narayanganj in Bangladesh. Those were all aggressive measures to attract more cargo for the Kolkata port system and are certain to improve its performance. CSS Kolkata is optimistic and has taken a strong measure to tackle the greater opportunities lying ahead. They have well trained professionals to fulfill this. Hence there is nothing called looking back for Arup and his team in Kolkata.

Leschaco Visit

Anker Leschaco Group’s recent visit in the month of September to CSS Group Middle East was surely cementing the association with excellence for both the leading freight forwarding companies. CSS Group had the pleasure of hosting the visit for Jorg Conrad (Owner), Oliver Oestreich (Member of Managing Board) and Claus Dieter Osthoff (Finance Director). The team had a tour at CSS Group CFS administration office and facility areas. Leschaco team were given detailed presentation about CSS functional and operational activities. Paul D’Souza, Sr. VP-Sales & Marketing and Siby C Kurian, Asst.General Manager hosted the visit. Through this enhanced strategic merger between both companies , the clients will have access to time definite, multimodal transportation and logistics services on a global scale.
