LONDON, March 30, 2011 - Jade Logistics is pleased to announce the successful implementation of
its Terminal Operating System (TOS) Master Terminal at the multi-cargo
terminal of Ignazio Messina & Co in Genoa, Italy.

Master Terminal manages all aspects of container, vehicle, steel, forest
products and general cargo handling operations at the terminal for lift
on-lift off, container roll on-roll off and roll on-roll off vessel types.

Howard Wren, Director and Head of Jade Logistics, said Master Terminal
was experiencing good growth, and the company is delighted with the success
of the Messina project.

"We have a great relationship with the team at Messina Line, and we look
forward to a long and productive partnership."

This year the Messina Terminal expects to handle more than 250,000 twenty
foot equivalent units, 126,000 linear metres of vehicles, and around 50,000
tonnes of general cargo with volumes expected to increase.

Captain Adriano Spotti, Operations Manager Ignazio Messina, said the
go-live was achieved with minimal impact on operations and no adverse effects
on local traffic and businesses.

"Soon after the go-live we experienced fully regular operations and good
productivity. Jade Master Terminal is an integral part of our operations and
we expect it to contribute to the improved efficiency and profitability of
the terminal," said Adriano Spotti.

Howard Wren said that the February 22 Christchurch earthquake had not
affected the timing of the project.

"I've been impressed with the smooth implementation and fabulous support
effort from the entire Jade team, following the tragic earthquake in

"Our robust and tested business management plan allowed the Messina
support phase to continue without disruption to Messina or any other Jade
Logistics client.

"Phase two of the Messina Line project is now underway with further
development being made to the roll on-roll off software," said Wren.

Following the opening of a new office in London Jade Logistics is
completing plans to open a new office in Dubai later this year to further
support business growth.
