About CJ Darcl Logistics Limited

CJ Darcl Logistics Limited is a prominent player in the Indian logistics sector, exhibiting market leadership in the full truckload (FTL) category. The company offers a wide range of transportation modes, including road and FTL, rail and multimodal, warehousing and distribution (W&D), as well as integrated logistics solutions such as project logistics, third-party logistics (3PL), and freight forwarding. Additionally, the company offers other services like air cargo transportation and coastal shipping.

Operating across India, CJ Darcl Logistics has an extensive network of 5,249 locations via 187 branch offices as of March 31, 2023. With a track record spanning 36 years since its inception, this company provides distinctive logistics solutions underpinned by several key strengths: nationwide presence, integrated service offerings, market intelligence, technology-driven service enhancements, and a substantial network of business partners.

In Fiscal 2018, the company solidified its capabilities by establishing a shareholder arrangement with the corporate promoter, CJ Logistics Corporation, which is a prominent logistics company based in South Korea.

According to a NITI Aayog study, India's logistics expenses relative to its GDP are approximately 14%, while BRIC nations average 10-11%, and developed countries typically have costs at 8-9%. In the future, India's logistics costs as a percentage of GDP are expected to decrease.

This reduction will be driven by several initiatives, such as the implementation of GST, increased investments in road infrastructure, the development of inland waterways and coastal shipping, and the focus on dedicated freight corridors.

To capture this opportunity, the company uses an 'asset-right' model, owning some vehicles while collaborating with a network of 496,981 partners for the rest. The company has 8,20,333 partnered fleet units and owns 990 commercial vehicles, 3 containerised rakes (40 wagons each), and 1,358 containers. This setup enables them to quickly scale their operations to meet demand and seize large business opportunities.
