Richard Theknath, CMD & Joy John, Director – Air and Sea Freight, Jet Freight, talk about their plans and preparations to enter logistics of Over Dimensional Cargo.

How is the Project Cargo segment growing with India’s logistics industry?
Project Cargo has always been a significant segment of India’s EXIM trade. Project movements were mainly focused on the petrochemical industry, renewable energies involving hydropower, solar energy, wind energy, bioenergy, and geothermal energy, significantly contributing to the surging demand.

The Indian Government’s Make in India push has been a boon for infrastructure projects. The series of announcements on infrastructure development presents a multi-fold future growth outlook for project logistics. There will be many projects in the years to come where India will be the focal point. India has been very vocal about preserving the environment and sustainability. We at Jet freight understand the importance of the project vertical and aim to venture into this vertical in 2023 and spread our service offerings so that we can grow along with the Indian economy.

What preparations has Jet Freight done to ensure growth in the ODC segment with regards to the necessary infrastructure, material handling equipment, ocean freight, chartering, and warehousing?
Jet Freight is already meeting project specialists for understanding this business more precisely. Streamlining the process is one of the critical aspects as the service delivery of project shipments is an essential feature of project handling. Handling projects needs innovative solutions with technological advancements which will rationalize project cargo logistics. We are also in consultation with corporates related to infrastructure, industrial projects, and EV manufacturers to know how we can facilitate project customers and contribute toward a sustainable environment and growth.

During the pandemic, we worked extensively on a hybrid model of transport with customized services to deliver shipments at the committed time.
