Mahindra Logistics (MLL), one of India’s largest Third-party logistics (3PL) solution providers, today announced the acquisition of a strategic stake in Transtech Logistics, also known as ShipX.



ShipX is a SAAS (Software as a Service) based Transport Management Solution (TMS) platform that serves the supply chain automation needs for 3PLs, shippers, and transporters.



Shipx is founded by a mature and experienced team who were part of a Boston-based supply chain fulfillment company that had been incubated by Infosys.



ShipX has been working with MLL for over 3 years and has been enabling transportation solutions. This acquisition will help MLL to increase end-to-end digitization and bring in operational efficiencies.



Mr. Pirojshaw Sarkari, CEO - Mahindra Logistics, said, “Logistics in future will be more technology driven – both in terms of our own operations, as well as interfaces with our customers and business partners. With our asset-light business model, we are already like a ‘platform’. The strengthening of our relationship with Shipx opens up a new opportunity to take this to the next level.”



Mr. Amarnath Kalale, Co-Founder of Transtech, said “MLL has been our most valuable customer for more than 3 years. This investment will help us in developing more product features and strengthening the organization. “
