UPS launches joint venture MOVIN, a logistics brand aiming to serve the needs and demands of the Indian market. The name MOVIN is a combination of Movement and India (MOVEMENT+INDIA). Headquartered in Gurugram, MOVIN is launching operations in a phased manner and will ramp up in July of 2022 starting with Mumbai, Delhi NCR and Bengaluru – with more expansions to other metros and cities across the nation to follow.
MOVIN will offer a range of extensive express and premium service coverage across India with a strong portfolio of B2B domestic services including a day-definite, as well as express, time-definite solutions, which will give businesses better predictability and greater competitiveness to swiftly integrate into the global value chain.
UPS states that India’s rapidly developing economy and the demand of the business community for robust logistics solutions presents a significant opportunity and MOVIN is well positioned to provide efficiencies, stronger distribution channels, advanced technology, and apply global best practices.
Leveraging UPS global logistics expertise combined with InterGlobe understanding of the Indian market, MOVIN will build technology-backed solutions that will link companies across the country to international businesses with speed, reliability, and digital customer experience. Creating corridors of opportunity, MOVIN will offer integration across air and ground networks, to B2B customers, enabling a flow of goods that is backed by consistent, predictable and responsive operations.
“India’s growth towards a $5tn economy will be largely supported by the growth of local businesses and logistics which are key contributors to India’s economy. I am confident that InterGlobe’s deep understanding of the Indian market, combined with UPS’s 114 years of logistics expertise will make this venture a success,” said JB Singh, Director InterGlobe Enterprises who will oversee the new brand. “We are certain that our foray into logistics with MOVIN will contribute significantly to the rapid development and growth of businesses in India. We look forward to enabling and facilitating trade, commerce and employment through this venture.”
