Cargo Talk - - Interview -

Ex­pan­sion is our reg­u­lar process. Ev­ery year, we have two or three projects lined up some­where in the coun­try. As I said, lo­ca­tion of a ware­house is pri­mar­ily cus­tomer-driven. For in­stance, Honda is com­ing up with a plant in Vitha­la­pur, Gu­jarat and fore­see­ing this de­mand we have ac­quired land at Sanand. Prac­ti­cally, this ware­house would be through in Au­gust. Though Sanand is around 60 km from Vitha­la­pur, so un­til we fi­nalise a lo­ca­tion in Vitha­la­pur, we will use this fa­cil­ity for Honda. And, mean­while we will fi­nalise the lo­ca­tion in Vitha­la­pur by the end of Au­gust.

It is the cus­tomer who pushes the de­mand for ware­houses or fa­cil­ity to cater their ser­vices. We have been key automotive lo­gis­tics play­ers for years now. It is only since the last nine years that we diver­si­fied into dif­fer­ent ver­ti­cals. in­ter­state per­mits will get erad­i­cated or not. The good part is that fi­nally it has been ini­ti­ated. Once the gov­ern­ment im­ple­ments this, it will see the loop­holes and bot­tle­necks of the cur­rent model. the automotive sec­tor was flat. We are plan­ning for 36 per cent of growth next year be­cause we are ex­pect­ing au­to­mo­tives to come back on track in the next six months and then we can push for a per­cent­age hike.
