JAMAICA, N.Y., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Janel World Trade, Ltd. (OTC Bulletin Board: JLWT), a full-service global provider of integrated transportation, logistics and environmental services, today announced it has signed an exclusive Search Agreement with Corporate Search America (CSA) to identify and aggressively recruit commissioned global sales executives that will grow the Company's top line revenues.

"In selecting CSA, we sought a recruiting source with proven credentials that understood our business and had the reach and contacts to some of our industry's best sales executives who are seeking to bring their books of business to a growing and stable company like Janel," said James Jannello, the Company's Chief Executive Officer.  "Looking at CSA's thorough recruiting methods and screening process for potential candidates, we all agree that this initiative has the potential to significantly increase top line revenue over the next 12 months. Combining our scalable business model with a commissioned sales initiative will also result in more attractive margins over the same period.

"We continue to be very optimistic about the growth our key markets in Asia, Europe and Central America," concluded Jannello. "The recruiting effort will focus on enhancing and strengthening those lanes to create better buying power and margins. We will look for new books of business that have an emphasis on U.S. exports, to capitalize on the weaker dollar."  

"We are excited to be working with Janel World Trade," said Jim Boghos, President of CSA.  "After a thorough investigation into Janel's management team, business systems and competitive advantages in the marketplace, I believe we can attract very talented people to the organization.   We will seek to add people with established business lines that have a desire to grow their books of business.  The timing is right for Janel and we couldn't be more optimistic."
