Chin­ub­hai Kal­i­dass & Bros. bagged the Freight For­warder of the Year Award for of­fer­ing freight for­ward­ing ser­vices for mul­ti­ple cargo and com­pet­ing with in­ter­na­tional play­ers. As a freight for­warder serv­ing the exim com­mu­nity they have reg­u­larly evolved and up­graded their ser­vices in line with the chang­ing cus­tomer trade re­quire­ments. The freight for­warder han­dled 0.56 mil­lion tonnes of non­con­tainer­ised cargo vol­umes in FY2016-17, while the con­tainer­ised cargo han­dled stood at 1,09,250 teus. Chin­ub­hai Kal­i­dass man­aged to post a smart growth in han­dling both con­tainer­ised and non­con­tainer­ised cargo. A growth rate of 31.90 per cent was recorded in non-con­tainer­ised cargo han­dling on a year-on-year ba­sis in FY2016-17, while the growth in con­tainer­ised cargo han­dling stood at 50.25 per cent. The freight for­warder op­er­ates through a net­work of 15 own of­fices in In­dia. It has a global foot­print in 785 cities across 189 coun­tries through part­ners and agents. Chin­ub­hai Kal­i­dass & Bros. han­dled 96,958 Cus­toms files in FY2016-17, which is an in­di­ca­tor of the huge cus­tomer base the freight for­warder ser­vices. They op­er­ate through a ware­hous­ing space of 1,30,000 Sq.ft. and have im­pro­vised op­er­a­tions to cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion. For in­stance, board­ing pass is is­sued for con­tain­ers sim­i­lar to air­line board­ing pass which means once is­sued, load­ing on a spe­cific ves­sel is cer­tain. They have in­stalled fully in­te­grated En­ter­prise Re­source Plan­ning sys­tem with auto up­dates to cus­tomers and the en­tire process of doc­u­men­ta­tion, cus­tomer ser­vice, sales, quo­ta­tions and fi­nance is au­to­mated. The IT im­ple­men­ta­tion helps the freight for­warder to cope up with the grow­ing dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion in the in­dus­try.
