July 26, 2021: The legacy logistics company Jeena & Co. and German-based Hermes World have come together in a strategic and exclusive partnership, where Hermes will represent Jeena in Germany and Jeena will represent Hermes in India.

Hermes World is part of the Global Otto Group – a globally active retail and services group, operating in over 30 countries in Europe, North & South America and Asia.

“Jeena has been handling the Otto business for over three decades and this association is now one step further in forging the relation spread across Sea & Air freight,” reads the release.
Headquartered in Hamburg, Hermes is a leading global logistics services company providing logistics solutions primarily to the retail industry. Providing a wide range of services: transport, fulfilment, home deliveries, 2-man handling and global e-commerce services, Hermes Group employs 18,255 people worldwide. In the financial year 2020/21, the Hermes Group increased its revenue to 2.54 billion euros.

Stephan Schiller, CEO, Hermes International, said “Jeena and the Otto Group have already been working together for more than 30 years. It therefore made sense to deepen this cooperation when setting up the sea & air business segment (now supply chain solutions) at Hermes. Working with a local expert like Jeena gives us and our customers an advantage in the Indian market. Despite its considerable size, Jeena is a family-run company with fast decision-making processes, a sustainable strategy, and great personal relationships at all levels - everyone benefits from this corporate culture”.

Sam Katgara, partner, Jeena & Co. adds further, “Both Hermes and Jeena, as an owner-managed family business, share an open corporate culture, a mutual appreciation and motivation that characterizes a profitable collaboration. Further, the duration of the collaboration already speaks of the tremendous trust that has been built over the years - and, of course, to the organizations' business growth. Especially in challenging times, it is important to have long-standing and reliable partners at your side. With Hermes, we have built up a very trusting relationship and efficient cooperation over the years and also in personal capacities.”

Jeena, as the largest freight forwarder in the country today & Hermes coming together will mark such a shift in the logistics solutions category. Together they envisage 15 – 20 percent revenue growth annually in the next three years.
