Tigers announced it is appointing Jana Schebera as the new managing director for its China operations which it said will add a further layer of freight forwarding expertise as the logistics provider continues to find growth in Asia.
Prior to moving to Tigers, Schebera spent more than a decade in the industry holding positions that included Managing Director for Hong Kong and South China at Rhenus Logistics, and business development roles at M+R Spedag Group.
Focus on value-added
“What attracted me to join Tigers was the strong focus on IT solutions and the emphasis on adding value for our customers through technology which is quite different from traditional freight forwarding and logistics,” Schebera said.
“Furthermore, Tigers has a strong global footprint in B2C logistics, which I definitely see as the future of the industry.”
Schebera will be based in Tigers’ Tsing Yi e-commerce fulfilment facility in Hong Kong.
“Jana brings a sound forwarding knowledge to the China team and having spent a few years in Shanghai not only understands the region well but is fluent in Mandarin too,” said Andrew Jillings, chief executive officer at Tigers.
