Temperature Controlled Logistics Partners
Our Temperature Controlled Logistics Partners in India are located in all the Temperature Controlled Logistics Partnersmajor cities of India. Maintaining core temperatures to protect our customers goods from deterioration is a vitally important part of our logistics system. With temperatures within the Indian interior ranging from -13 °C to +40 °C there is little margin for error. Whether your products are pharmaceuticals or foodstuffs which require storage or transportation at plus or minus temperatures we have the key facilities in place. Our partners have specialised in "Temperature Controlled Logistics" for over 12 years and have established Global Trade Lanes in place. We pride ourselves in our ability to send one sample box by Air and treat this with the same degree of care as full pallet loads for shipment via Airfreight or Seafreight. Data loggers are used from point of collection to point of delivery, ensuring both peace of mind and product integrity. Detailed below are some specifics about our operation and useful information which may help your decision process:

Temperature Controlled - Logistics Operations. To handle temperature control shipment from India requires 1st rate Logistics routing to maintain the required temperature and smooth handling.

Ahmedabad Shipments.

Air freight shipment need to be pick-up from supplier factory to our Mumbai warehouse and will be booked through Mumbai Airport to LHR on direct flight. (Eg If going to UK)

Temperature Controlled LCL Ocean shipments are undertaken in the same way as Airfreight, we collect the cargo from the supplier and take to our Mumbai warehouse for further loading in reefer container to relevant port.

Reefer FCL Ocean shipments from one supplier we send the reefer container directly to suppliers factory and once the cargo is loaded, is then sent direct to the Port of Nhava Sheva.

Ahmedabad to Mumbai by road transit time is about 12 to 14 hrs. Ahmedabad airport does not have direct flights to many major Global destinations. If the cargo is booked from AMD it will probably be be routed via Dubai where upon receipt we then ensure the cargo remains in a temperature controlled environment. AMD airport does not have a sizeable temperature controlled warehouse and the majority of cargo is stored outside the warehouse.

We much prefer to ensure that our AMD shipments are routed via Mumbai airport, using direct flights thus guaranteeing the required core temperature throughout the logistics process. The reason for this is that flights via Dubai can be subject to delay and this can cause issues within the temperature controlled transit sheds.


Air freight shipment need to be pick-up from supplier factory to our Bangalore warehouse and will be booked through Bangalore Airport to LHR on direct flight. (Eg If going to UK)

Temperature Controlled LCL Ocean shipments are undertaken in the same way as Airfreight, we collect the cargo from the supplier and take to our Bangalore warehouse for further loading in reefer container to either Nava Sheva or Chennai Ports (using best ocean rates).

Reefer FCL Ocean shipments from one supplier we send the reefer container directly to suppliers factory and once the cargo is loaded, is then sent direct to the Port of Nhava Sheva or Chennai (using best ocean rates). Bangalore to Nhava Sheva is 14 -16 hours by road, and 6 -8 hours to Chennai.

We have full temperature controlled warehousing facilities, for storage, repacking, consolidation etc. We are however restricted to 15 Pallets if the cargo requires storage at a positive temperature, rather than chilled or frozen. Bangalore is well connected with Direct Flights to a high number of Global Capital Cities. Where possible we use direct flights, with indirect flights using our facilities in Dubai.

Mumbai Shipments

Temperature Controlled Airfreight Consolidation: Air shipments are taken to our warehouse for consolidation when an economy rate is required, then to Mumbai airport six hours before flight departure.

Urgent Airfreight: If we do not need to do any additional packing (dry ice, thermo wrap etc)/labeling then we may deliver shipment directly to Mumbai airport.

Temperature Controlled Ocean shipments are handled in the same way as per Airfreight shipments. We can either take the shipment to our warehouse, or Transfer directly to the container port. This is dependent upon whether the cargo is LCL or FCL.

Mumbai airport does not have a temperature controlled warehouse, and have only 1x40' size' temp control container which tends to be full most of the time. We use our own facilities in Mumbai as this is the only way we can guarantee keeping within the temperature guidelines. Our operations team book the space first with airlines then we deliver the cargo to Mumbai airport 6 hrs prior to flight departure, thus ensuring correct temperature parameters.

Delhi Shipments.

Delhi supplier shipments will be routed directly to Delhi airport or Delhi CFS for Ocean, we follow the same systems as per Mumbai supplier shipments.

Most of the Delhi Air shipments we handle collected from the supplier and taken directly to Delhi Airport as they have required temp control warehousing. If any change of packing /labelling is required, this can be done within the Temperature Controlled Warehouse at Delhi Airport. The airport is well connected to major Global Captial Cities.
