Mahindra Logistics (MLL), one of India’s largest third-party logistics (3PL) solution providers, added more than 7.5 lakh sq ft area to its existing ‘Built-To-Suit’ warehousing capacity in Hyderabad and Chennai. According to the press statement, the facilities are developed to sustainable standards and allow MLL to provide flexible and scalable fulfillment and integrated distribution solutions.

Phase 1 of these sites is focusing on integrated solutions for eCommerce, consumer, and engineering industries. In addition to this, with the anticipation of strong demand during the forthcoming festive season, MLL has set up nearly 10 lakh sq ft of flex warehousing solutions for supporting customers in anticipation of the upcoming festive season. The company said a considerable size of this space is also covering large pharma companies during the pandemic. MLL is already gearing itself with a massive last-mile delivery roadmap to offer the highly anticipated Covid vaccine for its pharma clients across India.

Rampraveen Swaminathan, managing director, and chief executive officer, Mahindra Logistics, said, “Continuing our efforts in growing the non- Mahindra business, MLL continues to expand its warehousing capacity and is focused on tapping the huge potential in warehousing spaces across all regions. With the launch of these large spaces, we look forward to continued business growth from existing as well as potential customers from all regions. We have also deepened our focus by launching new solutions like returns processing, pop-up sort centers and integrated distribution services for our clients.”

Mahindra Logistics has been steadfast in its efforts to be more inclusive. The company has actively employed differently-abled persons and employees from the LGBTQ+ community at its warehouses across the country. Similarly, MLL is bridging the gender diversity gap by hiring more women from various backgrounds and experiences.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
