Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) – The logistics service provider Logwin opened its newest office in Ludhiana on November 11, the company’s twelfth location in India. The industrial city in the northern state of Punjab is considered one of the country’s fastest growing metropolises.
Thousands of small and large companies, including long-standing Logwin customers, are based in this growing region. “As a reliable logistics partner for our customers we naturally have a presence in the cities that are important to them,” explains Vijay Nair, Logwin’s Country Director in India. “Thanks to our closer proximity to their production sites we can more quickly gather first-hand knowledge about our customers’ requirements and work with them to develop customised solutions.”
Logwin’s presence in northern India is of particular interest to regional customers in the areas of sporting goods, bicycles and bicycle parts, car parts as well as fashion and textiles. “Because we already have existing customers in these industries, we can offer our northern Indian customers the relevant expertise and equipment,” says Vijay Nair.
Previously, Logwin’s location in Delhi was the first point of contact for customers from northern India. Now, Logwin offers international import and export services by air and sea freight directly from Ludhiana, including customs processing. Vijay Nair: “This means that our local customers here also get global procurement and distribution from a single source.” The inland port, situated only one kilometre away, allows incoming and outgoing goods to be processed quickly. With the opening of Logwin’s new Ludhiana location, regional customers are supported by local sales and operations staff.
