Teamglobal Logistics, one of the fastest growing LCL carriers having pan-India presence, recently commenced own operations in Kochi.
The company was launched in 2005 by some of the most credible names in the shipping industry having decades of experience in the business of LCL cargo consolidation. Over the years, Teamglobal has expanded rapidly in 17 locations in India with 12 own offices in major ports and ICD locations.
At other locations it operates through reliable and dedicated agents, thereby ensuring that its customers are being offered uniform logistics solutions across India.
Teamglobal now offers more than 100 direct LCL weekly consolidation services to and from India.
The Kochi office is situated in the shipping district of Wellington Island, thus ensuring closer coordination with Customs and Port authorities as well as the forwarding community.
According to Mr Nityam Khosla, Director of Teamglobal, it has been the company’s endeavour to continuously upgrade services and offer a uniform solution to all its customers on pan-India basis. “We will strive to meet our customers’ requirements as an LCL carrier so that we offer a cost-effective solution for LCL cargoes on pan-India basis which is dedicated to consistency in quality,” he stressed. Teamglobal’s agenda, he said, was to offer a wide range of logistics solutions to customers, which lead to expansion in the areas of FCL forwarding, project cargo transportation and air freight.
In the first phase of operations in Kochi, Teamglobal will be launching direct LCL consolidation services to Singapore, Jebel Ali and New York (USEC). It has plans to launch direct import and export services to major cargo destinations in future.
Mr Vivek Kele, also a Director of Teamglobal, commented that the company was a very strong IT-focused and quality conscious operator. “We were accorded ISO certification in 2008 and have an all-India centralised system enabling cross-country operation. Our Kochi customers will now be able to do booking of their shipments anywhere in India using our online system. We are one of the few logistics companies having these capabilities. Additionally, we also have a very strong e-commerce module which enables our customers to interact with us on 24×7 basis,” he pointed out.
Mr Kele added that the company constantly evaluates all its processes to strengthen them and ensure that it keeps improving on its efficiency quotient.
Teamglobal is globally associated with Shipco Transport and is a member of Worldwide Alliance (WWA). WWA is a network of strong LCL operators globally who are market leaders in their countries of operations, and includes formidable names like Combimar-Italy, Transglory-Spain, Allink-Brazil and SACO Shipping-Germany.
Teamglobal Kochi operations are overseen by Mr Jayakrishnan P, who is complemented by a team of well-experienced and trained staff.
