What Client Category Would Turtles Go Under?

CHANGSHA, China — Although ETS International routinely offers “romance” limo packages as part of its extensive menu of services, an 813 km trek across scenic China in early May brought together a high-profile couple unlike any other the company had served in the past. In fact, it was a rendezvous that had the whole world watching – and required not only a special climate-controlled vehicle for the passenger himself, but also a separate van for a team of doctors and a mini-coach for a traveling press corp.

ETS was entrusted by a group of scientists and conservationists with the special task of delivering the world’s last giant male Yangtze soft-shell turtle from his home at a Suzhau, China zoo to the last known female of the species – who waited patiently in her special tank, behind bullet-proof glass, in a zoo in Changsha.

According to experts, this is the last hope of saving a species believed to be the largest freshwater turtles in the world – she at about 80 years old and weighing almost 90 pounds; he at 100 years old and weighing about 200 pounds.

“It was a great honor to be chosen for such a historic event,” admits John Greene, President/CEO of ETS International in Quincy, Mass. “The safety and comfort of our passengers is always our top priority, but there was a whole other level of responsibility when it came to this job.”

For Greene, the fact that ETS was chosen to transport such valuable cargo was a testament to the level of service his business consistently provides, and was further proof that ETS is truly a global company. Although ETS is little more than a year old, Greene has nearly two decades of experience as an award-winning business owner and consultant to some of the most successful businesses in the industry.

ETS was started with one car and a phone number in January of 2007 – and now operates 20 cars in Boston and a vast network of global affiliates, with sales revenue projected to exceed $2 million in 2008.

“While other businesses are feeling the pain of the economic slowdown, we have actually grown month over month since we started,” says Greene. “We primarily serve a corporate client base – and these days, corporations are looking for the kind of real value that we provide.”
