Allcargo Logistics’ NVOCC division introduces direct Less Than Container Load (LCL) service to Mangalore

Mumbai, June 13, 2016: Allcargo Logistics Ltd, India’s leading integrated logistics provider, listed
on BSE & NSE and part of the global conglomerate Avvashya Group, is proud to introduce the
first ever direct LCL service to Mangalore under its Non Vessel operating common carrier
(NVOCC) division. Allcargo names the frequency ‘Made to Call’.
Vessel named Godavari departed from Colombo on 2nd June and is slated to reach Mangalore
on 4th June which makes Allcargo the first mover in trade to cut down the route time to
Mangalore. Usually, LCL consolidators adopt a longer route by brining the shipment to Chennai
and then transferring it to the Inland Container Depots (ICD) in Bangalore from where the
customer collects his cargo and carries it to Mangalore via road. The entire procedure is very
time consuming. The new service of ‘Made to Call’ to Mangalore will benefit our clients and save
lot of time
Congratulating the organization and the industry, Chairman Mr. Shashi Kiran Shetty said, “It is
as if I have realized a dream, since we have seen our organization grow, I had an ardent desire
that Mangalore, my beloved hometown makes its mark on the map of Allcargo, and I am sure it
is just the beginning for Mangalore.
Shantha Martin, CEO – Indian Sub Continent, Middle East , Africa and East Med added, “I am
proud of my team, and we owe our success to each and every member of our team,….it is
through our team that we are where we are and extend my appreciation to the trade for being
very fast to subscribe to this service which is beneficial to them and their customers by reducing
the transit time and making it cost economical.”
Mr. Hareram, Sr. Vice President, also said that, “Mangalore is a chief port city on the west coast
of India and Indian government’s initiatives to strengthen maritime trade and develop port cities
through Sagarmala Project will see huge developments in Mangalore city”.
