Ian International, a Maryland-based industry leader in global shipping and logistics, posted a 37 percent increase in profits over the first quarter of 2005. The growth resulted in the most profitable first quarter of the companys history and immediately followed a record-setting fourth quarter in 2005.
Ian Internationals continued growth is attributed to strong imports from Asia, new business in the car transport industry, and a new marketing and branding campaign. President Glenn Lobas projects further growth in the second quarter for his company, as the U.S. economy continues to improve.
Imports from China, Hong Kong, and Pakistan remained strong, with imports from India growing dramatically. Lobas said that China has been the major player in the world economy, but now India is second and will be a big economic factor.
Ian International also continues to acquire new business in the auto transport industry. The companys reputation for superior customer service has garnered many referrals from serious car collectors. Ian International’s status as a preferred vendor of Hagerty Insurance, the largest collector car and boat insurance agency in the United States, as well as its sponsorship of the Team Lexus race team, further generate business.
Ian Internationals new marketing and branding campaign, – Ian is the answer, – is positioning the company as the solution for all global shipping and logistics of commercial cargo. A new jingle and radio and print advertising support the – Ian is the answer – campaign.
Lobas said, – We want to be the one solution for a companys shipping and logistics. Whether its freight forwarding, auto import and export, trucking, or customs clearances, Ian is the answer, and we want everyone to know that through our new branding campaign.
