Fashion and lifestyle industry is a USD 40 billion industry in India, growing at 10-14% per annum. It is enabled by fast-changing fashion cycles and trends. New designs and patterns are launched into the market every two months. Moreover, fashion requirements in different parts of the country are different given the huge variation in weather.
For example, while the weather might still be warm in Maharashtra and Karnataka, it could require heavy woollen clothing in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. With an average season lasting only for 3 to 4 months, faster time to market and availability on the shelf becomes crucial. We diligently back the need for swift delivery with our optimised logistics network that ensures materials hit the market at the right time, guaranteeing significant business value.
Automotive aftermarket is a high margin (25-40%), high growth sector which is expected to hit USD 15-20 billion by 2020.

We partner with our clients to scale up their operations with our services that guarantee extensive and faster reach, ably secured by high-end technology.
