With the growing demand for e-commerce and easily available, on-demand services for a number of requirements, customer expectations are on the rise. When it comes to logistics, these expectations manifest themselves in terms of a need for quick and easy bookings, constant cargo visibility and updates, and door-do-door deliveries, be it in India or around the world.
As lean, agile business processes and operations become the need of the hour and a vital source of competitive advantage, many businesses around the world are looking to optimise. Relying on a single logistics services provider offering door-to-door cargo transportation rather than multiple vendors, making business supply chains more efficient and saving on cost and time seem to be the focus areas.
Combining their strengths with a recently concluded strategic collaboration, Gati, India’s premier express distribution and first and last mile logistics company along with Allcargo, India’s largest integrated logistics services provider and the global LCL consolidation leader, can offer door-to-door cargo deliveries that create significant advantage for businesses across a wide spectrum of industries.
Benefits of unmatched network coverage
Gati’s extensive domestic reach that covers more than 19,800 PIN Codes in 735 out of India’s 739 districts is unparalleled. It has been built and nurtured over years of fruitful associations with channel partners and associates who add to Gati’s strengths and bolster reach right into the hinterlands of the country. Operating the largest fleet of vehicles in the country, Gati can transport any size and type or cargo across the country, safely and on-time.
Allcargo adds its muscle to this coverage by offering access to a global network that spans more than 180 countries.
Additionally, it offers door-to-door cargo shipment deliveries in more than 50 countries, making it possible to offer seamless logistics across borders, almost anywhere in the world. Expertise in handling Dangerous Goods (DG) cargo, Over-Dimensional Cargo (ODC) and a range of value-added services help make its services seamless and convenient.
Together, Gati and Allcargo can offer a formidable advantage by devising multimodal solutions that can be customised to offer ocean freight, international and domestic air freight, along with express logistics and first and last mile distribution, based on customers’ requirements.

Digital tools and technology for the win
In today’s fast-paced world, digitalization is transforming business operations at a speed and extent that had never been imagined before.
While offering door-to-door deliveries, both Gati and Allcargo have stepped up and digitally-enabled their services to offer customers complete visibility, transparency in pricing and much better control over their cargo and business supply chains.
Gati’s exclusive enterprise management software solution allows for information flow across departments in the organization and streamlines the entire delivery process along with ensuring optimal routing schedules, efficient reverse logistics where needed and regular updates to customers at each delivery stage.
