What ser­vices do you of­fer?

With a strong pres­ence in USA, Europe, Asia, Latin Amer­ica, we pro­vide end-to-end so­lu­tions for sup­ply chain man­age­ment, start­ing from freight for­ward­ing, (both by air and sea) to ware­house man­age­ment and spe­cialised value added ser­vices like con­tract lo­gis­tics ac­tiv­i­ties, cov­er­ing, au­to­mo­tive, min­ing, FMCG. phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, What can be done to bridge the gap be­tween the end user and lo­gis­tics ser­vice provider?

Many things can be done but it should start with tech­nol­ogy that en­ables and con­nects dif­fer­ent plat­forms and tech­nolo­gies.There is a need for neu­tral in­dus­try en­ablers in our mar­ket to make this hap­pen. to get a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage over oth­ers. It is more fo­cused on be­ing bet­ter than look like lo­gis­tics or for­ward­ing com­pany, which need not nec­es­sar­ily help the end user.

Adopt­ing a tech­no­log­i­cal stan­dard will help 3PLs to fo­cus on cus­tomer ser­vice and de­liv­er­ing ex­cel­lent value to cus­tomers. To­day no 3PL, glob­ally, is able to pro­vide seam­less data ex­change, which is a con­cern for the global ship­per com­mu­nity. What is MIQ Lo­gis­tics USP?

Our strength is our swift­ness and abil­ity to adopt and re­spond to chang­ing mar­ket con­di­tions and bring the best to ta­ble for our clients with good and strong blend of global and local know-how’s and skills. We are a flat or­gan­i­sa­tion and most of the lead­er­ship team have a good feel and ear to the ground .

What drives 3PL growth in India? In my opin­ion China and India are fu­ture growth en­gines as most of the de­vel­oped economies of Europe and North Amer­ica are peak­ing while they con­tinue to be the largest driv­ers and con­sumers. India is an im­por­tant mar­ket for us.

Your fu­ture plans... China and India are two key mar­kets. We see them as growth en­gines and we will sup­port growth in these mar­kets.

How­ever MIQ does not buy busi­ness, we be­lieve in build­ing the or­gan­i­sa­tion not just in erect­ing one–one would agree there is fine dif­fer­ence in two ap­proaches.
