Gati records 18% revenue growth, ₹1,469 crores in FY23 for express business

Gati Limited has recorded a revenue of ₹1,469 Crores in FY23 for the express business, witnessing a growth of 18% as compared to the last year. Pirojshaw (Phil) Sarkari, Chief Executive Officer Gati said, “This performance reflects company’s focus on volume growth and operational efficiency. The year saw Gati launching its mega surface transhipment hub at Bhiwandi (Mumbai), in addition to hubs at Nagpur and Guwahati. The Mumbai hub is spread over 1.15 lac square feet with 61 bays and dock leveler. We also saw 100% implementation of digital e-dockets for retail clients and have started a pilot for MSMEs. The gross margin expansion remains on track, witnessing an improvement of 133bps over last year. In the next phase of infrastructure development, we’ll be setting up four surface transhipment hubs in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Indore and Kolkata.” The quarter gone by saw weakness in initial months followed by a very strong March. However, overall weakness in consumer durables and automobile sector, notwithstanding the unseasonal rains dampened the sentiment a bit. Despite tough economic scenario, the company has been able to maintain its performance. Our strategy for delivering such performance remains consistent and relies on our pillars of digitalization, sales acceleration, infrastructure, and operational excellence. We mandated GPS in all Linehaul & Feeder vehicles, to enhance visibility, improve performance & optimized productivity via continuous monitoring. The Company also improvised on dashboard designs to enable real time data visibility and KPI monitoring. Gati aims to enhance customer experience and operational excellence on front-end digitalization that include CRM system for managing customer relationships, sales acceleration with cluster-based approach, data science and digital payments.
