India Focus

Companies across the world are looking to India as a sourcing or manufacturing hub, or to exploit the retail revolution. Highly educated, English speaking talent available in India is attracting companies globally and the world's second largest population is perceived as an asset for process and knowledge oriented tasks.

Major and non-major ports, both Air and Sea, are seeing an increase of traffic and are clocking double-digit growth. There is however pressure on limited infrastructure capabilities, as modernization and automation is slow. This results in high transportation costs, traffic bottlenecks, and slow documentation clearance. Transportation and logistics processes in India are highly complex and diverse owing to a large landscape and limited infrastructure.

Shivam Shipping Services has an understanding of the unique working environment in India through years of experience and while being a global player is capable of facilitating cargo movement to and from the remotest hinterland of India to the furthest global destination.

For instance, do you know that India celebrates about 26 public, customs, dock and bank holidays and that these declared holidays differ from one state to another? Every state is a country in itself, with its own language and culture. It doesn't take much to imagine how your carefully planned delivery schedules can go awry if you have not taken this small detail into account. Teaming up with a partner who understands global standards as well as the local work environment is crucial.

Our existing infrastructure allows you to plug into the Indian market, without investing in resources or setting up basic infrastructure to connect to the mainstream activities in India. Through the process, our technology capabilities ensure that you receive complete information and gain control over the supply chain by providing visibility on status of goods in transshipment and storage.
