Gati, Allcargo Logistics owned, has launched surface transhipment centres (STCs) in Nagpur – Maharashtra and Guwahati – Assam. The launch is in line with Gati’s plan of setting up twelve modern, automated and environment friendly STCs. Gati has plans of launching more STCs in Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad as its objective is to strengthen its supply chain and warehousing competencies and networks.

Commenting on the launch, Pirojshaw Sarkari, CEO, Gati Ltd., said, “With the economic growth gaining momentum, there is an increasing demand for well equipped warehousing and shipment infrastructure across key locations in India. With the launch of the STCs in Nagpur and Guwahati, we aim to meet the demand and redefine the standards of warehousing and transportation service delivery. At the Nagpur STC, we’ll continue to have a strong SME-focused approach to help the sector build more geographically diversified markets. Nagpur being strategically located at the centre of the country, the location compliments hub and spoke distribution.”

He added, “The strategic location of the STC also facilitates same-day delivery of the consignments within the catchment areas. On the other hand, the Guwahati ST because of its strategic location offers robust distribution outreach to the North Eastern states. With more STCs in the pipeline, we at Gati are aligning our strategies and resources to develop a robust supply chain backbone, benefitting a range of industries. As part of our ESC initiatives, we have plans to convert our entire pickup and delivery fleet of more than 2000 vehicles to electric by 2025. The Nagpur STC, driven by that vision will soon deploy EVs.”
