Hong Kong-based logistics provider Tigers has appointed Jana Schebera as new managing director for China, according to a press release, as the company looks to add more layer of freight forwarding expertise as it expands in Asia. She will be based in Tigers’ Tsing Yi e-commerce fulfilment facility in Hong Kong.
Prior to moving to Tigers, Jana was Rhenus Logistics’ managing director for Hong Kong and South China. She also held business development roles at M+R Spedag Group.
“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,” the new MD stated in a press release.
Jana, who got her first master’s degree in economics and Chinese studies from Humboldt University of Berlin, is currently working towards a second master’s degree in carbon management from the University of Edinburgh.
“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.
