Sur­pass­ing All That One Has Set Out To Ac­com­plish

Business Sphere - - FREIGHT FORWARDING - By Our Cor­re­spon­dent

Set­ting bench­marks in what­ever one does is easy to talk about, but dif­fi­cult to do. Such is the very happy co-in­ci­dence at V.S. Bhag­wati Ship­ping Pvt. Ltd. Set up in 2007 as an in­ter­na­tional freight for­warder, this com­pany pro­vides a di­verse range of ser­vices like cus­tom clear­ance, in­ter­na­tional freight for­ward­ing, trans­porta­tion ser­vices, ware­hous­ing ser­vices, li­ai­son ser­vices and in­dent­ing. In­ci­den­tally, this firm is also in­volved in im­ports of spices and nuts. Says the ami­able manag­ing direc­tor of this com­pany, Mr.Vinod K. Sharma, very as­sertively, “we are one of the lead­ing cus­tom houses and freight for­ward­ing agents to­day.” In­ci­den­tally, trans­port ser­vices via all four modes of rail, road, water and air are of­fered here. The con­sign­ments are picked up from any and ev­ery lo­ca­tion asked for by clients and these are de­liv­ered lit­er­ally at the doorstep of the fi­nal des­ti­na­tion. The clien­tele list of this com­pany in­cludes cov­eted names like Car­refour WC & C In­dia Pvt. Ltd., “Uno Minda” Minda In­dus­tries Ltd., Busi­ness Stan­dard Ltd., AGH Al­tech Pvt. Ltd., Starke In­ter­na­tional, Lucky Ma­chines Pvt. Ltd., Balaji In­ter­na­tional, Ster­ling Pub­lish­ers Pvt. Ltd., Lee De­signs (Ahemd­abad), Sor­bead In­dia (Bar­oda), Medis­urg In­ter­na­tional (Bar­oda), Acrysil Ltd. (Bhav­na­gar), Zy­dus In­dus­tries (Bar­oda) and Sak­sham Im­pex Pvt. Ltd. Set up with an ini­tial in­vest­ment of Rs 25,000 in the year 1996, this unit is also aided and abet­ted by the pres­ence of Mr. Vaib­hav Sharma, scion of Mr Vinod K. Sharma. Op­er­at­ing from three nodal points of Be­la­pur, Delhi and Gurgaon, this com­pany has reg­is­tered a growth rate of a size­able 40 per­cent in the last few years. Work­ing on the steam of about 35 em­ploy­ees, this firm also has ob­tained the CHA and FAAAI cer­ti­fi­ca­tions. “We have logged in an em­ployee re­ten­tion rate of more than 80 per­cent,” say the Sharma duo proudly. In ad­di­tion, the fa­ther and son combo also claim that “we have clients who have been as­so­ci­ated with us since our ini­tial days.” At V.S. Bhag­wati Ship­ping Pvt. Ltd., the pre­dic­tion is to “do about 500 con­tain­ers each month within the next one year or so.” Also, the Shar­mas hope to rake in turnovers of about Rs 50 crore within the next two to three years. In ad­di­tion, plans are afoot for them be­com­ing sin­gle point ser­vice providers in their niche of work ex­per­tise. Sev­eral moves are on the anvil for this vi­sion to turn into a re­al­ity. For one, the work­force is be­ing pum­melled up. Also, they hope to es­tab­lish their pres­ence in Bar­oda, Mun­dra, Chen­nai and Orissa as soon as is pos­si­ble. In ad­di­tion, set­ting up over­seas of­fices in the USA and Aus­tralia are very much in the pipe­line. Sharma strongly be­lieves that “ded­i­ca­tion to work, fil­ial sup­port and hard work have helped us achieve our present po­si­tion in the mar­ket.” With such an ethics-ori­ented base of core pil­lars on which this com­pany rests, it will be no sur­prise if they even sur­pass all they have set out to ac­com­plish.
