With India’s overall exports showing a 49.6% YoY increase and overall imports showing a 68% YoY increase, between April 2021 and December 2021, there is no doubt about the importance of global trade and its impact on the GDP and per capita income of the country. And enabling this trade by giving businesses access to world-class Container Freight Station (CFS) facilities are experienced logistics services providers like Allcargo Logistics.
For businesses that look ahead to expand and fortify their business supply chains, effectively plan for demand-supply fluctuations and store and move cargo safely, connectivity matters the most. That’s exactly where market leaders like Allcargo step in, offering one of India’s widest CFS networks.
As one of the strongest links in this network, for more than a decade now, Allcargo’s CFS in Mundra has played an instrumental role in helping businesses explore untapped markets.

15 years of glory
After a momentous start in 2007, in 2022, Allcargo’s CFS at Mundra celebrates 15 of successful operations.
A feat made possible by the constant support and trust of customers who continue to rely on Allcargo’s Mundra CFS for their global and domestic shipments, is best celebrated with customers themselves. So, Allcargo’s Mundra CFS had a celebratory event, ‘Utsav’ to commemorate 15 years of success and achievements.
Graced by Mr. T.V. Ravi, I.R.S., Commissioner of Customs, Mundra, as the Chief Guest, Utsav saw team members, customers, vendors, partners and associates come together and cherish this milestone.
Awards recognizing the contribution of various partners, individuals and team members made the occasion even more special.
“It is such a wonderful feeling to celebrate 15 years with the very people who have made it possible. This positive vibe we are experiencing today is what keeps us going and I am grateful to all our customers, partners, vendors and team members for their collaborative efforts. The past 15 years have been great, but our best is yet to come. This is only the beginning and we look ahead to bold ambitions and record-breaking numbers in the years to come”, said Lalitendu Mohanty, Head of Allcargo’s Mundra CFS, while speaking on the occasion.
Incidentally, Allcargo’s Chennai CFS also completed 15 years in April 2022.
CFSs have significantly enhanced the ease of doing business for those looking to export and import. Operating them requires a commitment to excellence, a focus on customer centricity, and flair for seamless operations, characteristics owned by Allcargo Logistics’ CFS Mundra.
