SUMAN FORWARDING AGENCY PVT. LTD.
Amitesh Singh, CEO of Suman Forwarding Agency Pvt. Ltd. has boosted his firm taking it from a humble transportation company to emerging as a trend-setter providing customised solutions in the sector of multi-modal transportation and logistics.
He’s speeding forward on the road to entrepreneurial glory. Amitesh Singh, CEO of Suman Forwarding Agency Pvt. Ltd., confessedly, loves challenges and displayed smartness in embracing one full-throttle at the first hint of an opportunity.
In 2000, when Singh joined forces with his father (full name) to kickstart a logistics firm, success was inevitable given Singh’s entrepreneurial thirst for expansion and excellence. States Singh, “The joy of being part of the supply chain that finds a way into the lives of people, directly or indirectly by way of supplies seemed to be a great achievement in itself.”
Soaring from a pure transportation firm to a company that specialises in containerised cargo and allied activities, and rising virtually from scratch to pegging a turnover of Rs.200 crore in over a decade, SFAPL and Singh have certainly come a very, very long way…
“Our flagship company Integrated Logistics Division commenced operations in 2005 with a turnover of Rs.36.3 million employing 10 people. By the time we had reached the financial year 2012-2013, our turnover had crossed Rs.1000 million and that was a major milestone for us.”
“SFAPL provides model solutions for logistic needs and consultations, executes demanded transport services and takes care of supply chain services. We’re trailblazers in the sector of multi-modal transportation, warehousing and inventory management. SFAPL is considered as a trend-setter in rail, road and water transportation and value-added support for our principals in the areas of sales. Whether it is a single shipment or a contractual logistics agreement, our expertise lies in providing a customised solution to meet the requirements of your business. We believe in functionality, deliverability and flexibility.”
