Tell us about your journey so far with AVG Logistics. What are the challenges that you have encountered so far and how did you overcome them?
I started my career in 1985 with Indo Arya as the CEO of the company and ensured 20 percent growth during my tenure even during the recession period. I moved out in 2010 to establish my own venture AVG Logistics to provide specifically for the FMCG sector.

Ascertaining discipline transportation, warehousing and value-added services, we provide primary and secondary transportation across various industries. We have adopted a distinctive model connected to various cities such as Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kanpur, Rohtak, Haryana, Delhi and other cities for providing seamless logistics and warehousing services.
During the COVID, despite unavailability of drivers, we tried our best to provide the best transportation facilities with the help and support of railways through which goods were moved from station to station. Recovering from the COVID crisis we resumed our past growing pace significantly, and presently we are working on how to reduce the cost of vehicles, tires, fuels, and many more. Irrespective of the hike in all the costs, we are trying to sustain this economic situation and this has been our main strategy partnership with all of our customers.

The safety of our truck drivers and the goods of our consumers are of the critical priority for our company

How your knowledge and experience help the company to stay abreast with the changing trends in the market today.
GST is a great help for the logistic industry, as its implementation ensures organized business enabling the enterprise sector to emerge as an organized sector. So, it is a beneficial factor for us that we are getting more business and improving the turnover of our company.

Reducing the turnaround time of the vehicle because of the GST, our vehicles used to run only 300 km earlier, now they can run for 400 km per day. With more than 30% increase intraveling per day, it is a direct push to us acting to our advantage.
How are you adhering to the safety norms to ensure the wellbeing of your drivers and customers?
Following the safety norms is mandatory for us because if we don't follow the safety norms, then we are going to be playing with the high-risk condition. The safety of our truck drivers and the goods of our consumers are the critical priority for our company. To drive a larger safety agenda in our company, we are focusing on high standard training, measurement and continuous improvement by providing complete training and counselling for the drivers at our workshops.
