—and Jaguar has arrived

Jaguar Freight Services has relocated its London, England-based European Center of Operational Excellence (COE) to the completely refurbished former Elizabeth Arden factory in Acton, London—a location made famous by rock legend Elvis Costello, who worked there during the 1970s.
The London COE is home base for the Jaguar Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) regional organization, headed by Alan Baldwin, director of operations. Its operational responsibility includes the company’s Paris and London offices, plus a network of agents in nearly 20 nations throughout the region. The London COE team oversees Jaguar Freight’s integrated door-to-door freight systems throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
“Even though Elvis Costello’s ‘I’m Not Angry’ lyrics called the old location the ‘vanity factory,’ Jaguar Freight’s move to new state-of-the-art offices at The Perfume Factory is anything but vanity; it has real and tangible benefits for our customers,” said Simon Kaye, founder and chief executive officer of Jaguar Freight. “As we launch the new international version of our Advance Shipment Notifications (ASN) online portal for inbound shipment tracking, and increase our UK-based sales force, The Perfume Factory’s ability to accommodate expanded technology and personnel will provide a real advantage.”
The London COE will use the combination of CyberTrax and the CyberChain suite to enhance a transportation management system that coordinates every phase of the supply chain process, giving shippers assurance that their transactions will be fully transparent and operationally efficient.
