Forwarder Tigers appoints MD for China

By Damian Brett

Tigers has appointed Jana Schebera as its new managing director, China, adding 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.

“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,” said Schebera.

“Furthermore, Tigers has a strong global footprint in B2C logistics, which I definitely see as the future of the industry.” 

Based in Tigers’ Tsing Yi e-commerce fulfilment facility in Hong Kong, she holds a master’s degree from Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany, in Economics and Chinese Studies, and is currently working towards a second Master’s degree in Carbon Management from the University of Edinburgh, UK.

“Schebera 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 at Tigers.
