Global logistics and transport specialists Tigers is committed to social responsibility, and the Discover Urjaa Charitable Trust was formed by staff at Tigers India to give back to society and support the education of children.

“Urjaa is a Hindi word meaning energy and potential, so the trust focuses primarily on helping children from financially disadvantaged families to discover their potential, or Urjaa,” said Vignesh Manjeshwar, Managing Director at Tigers India.

“Our work in Mumbai has helped many children to complete their education and bring about small but meaningful change in society through the education and empowerment of children.”

Discover Urjaa Charitable Trust is primarily funded by Tigers and staff from the Mumbai office support the organisation through volunteering their time at workshops and training, including teaching children English to help their careers in later life.

“People development is at the core of the Tigers’ value system, and, as a global organisation, it is our responsibility to give something back to society, which is being made possible through our work with Discover Urjaa and Ubuntu Pathways,” said Andrew Jillings, Chief Executive Officer at Tigers.

Social Responsability

Tigers is a ‘Caring’ Company – We care for our people and our communities.  Our people are our biggest asset. We encourage open communication and continuous learning.  “Savages”  is  our  in-house leadership development program to nurture our employees to become future leaders.

Charity Contributions – We support Ubuntu Pathways in South Africa and Discover Urjaa Charitable Trust in India. We do this because it can take a child from learning how to create a simple spreadsheet, to coding a piece of software that could change the world.

Carbon Footprint – We minimize our CO2 footprint by stretching efficiency to its ultimate limits across our services portfolio. For instance, our hybrid Ship+ product decreases the reliance on air-only shipments and can reduce carbon footprint by as much as 50%.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
