Mahindra Logistics launches freight charter operations in the Middle East

The provider of integrated logistics solutions, Mahindra Logistics Ltd. (MLL), has announced the commencement of freight charter operations in the Middle East with headquarters in Dubai.

MLL is part of the Indian Mahindra Group and offers technology-enabled integrated solutions for 3PL, express and cross-border supply chain management. The company provides freight forwarding and related value-added services, serving over 55 routes around the world. With this launch, the company will expand trucking into freight charter operations, working with customers in the electronics, consumer durables, pharmaceutical and engineering sectors.

The choice of Dubai, United Arab Emirates as the hub for its global charter operations is strategic. Over the past few decades, the UAE has emerged as India’s third largest trading partner in 2021–22. Dubai has also evolved into a global and regional commercial center. Mahindra Logistics will serve the vast Middle East region from its Dubai location.

Rampraveen Swaminathan, Managing Director and CEO of Mahindra Logistics, said in a statement: “In line with our vision to enhance our services, we are delighted to launch our cargo charter operation based in Dubai (UAE). This is also the first international venture for Mahindra Logistics. With the increasing complexity of global supply chains, cross-border supply chain services have become critical to supply chain resilience. The company is expanding our cross-border logistics business on top of our current freight forwarding business, offering our customers expanded service options. The United Arab Emirates and Dubai offer us an excellent starting point for business development.”

As a neutral player entering the global air cargo charter business, the company will offer dedicated aircraft, longer transit times and the expertise in developing end-market solutions, integration with other logistics services and a strong technology interface.

Mahindra Logistics Limited is an integrated third-party logistics service provider (3PL) specializing in supply chain management and enterprise mobility. It serves over 400 corporate customers from various industries.
