Ardeshir B Cursetjee & Sons Ltd (estd 1810), part of the ABC Dubash group, is one of the foremost multimodal transport and maritime firms in the country. It caters to the critical needs of Indian corporates and PSUs and has performed many critical transport projects with efficacy as a single-point responsibility vendor (SPRV). It is expanding its operation in select regions of Africa on the back of the few prestigious turnkey logistics contracts won by the company in the power and mining sectors recently.
Extensive infrastructure available with ABC Dubash in the road transport and offshore sector, i.e., Goldhofer modular axles, heavy duty prime movers, SPMTs, transport and lifting accessories, deck loading and hatch type barges and tugs, enables them to perform in Indian and overseas markets with an optimised service platform designed to the requirements.
ABC Dubash group is committed to work towards leadership position in their focused verticals at gateway and landlocked destinations in the select African regions with captive resources and partnering in services with carriers, freight forwarders/agents, transporters and SCM partners for their project owners, EPC, cross trade customers and merchant consignees.
In line with the stated objectives, ABC Dubash has relocated specialised transport equipment and accessories (first of its kind in Sub-Saharan Africa) to cater to dedicated inland freight corridors in the ever growing Indo-Africa trade lane. It will have a single window servicing both ends to provide pre-carriages, shipping and on-carriage services to shippers and consignees involved in trading of capital goods and other merchandise to Africa.
Mr Manish Srivastava, CEO of Ardeshir B Cursetjee & Sons Ltd, emphasises upon the need of relocating a part of the company’s specialised transport equipment fleet and associated human capital to Africa, which is based purely on the future of inbound and outbound project cargo freight to Africa. ABC Dubash group’s initiative is a beginning of an integrated door-to-door project cargo service covering all aspects of logistics at origin and destination due to its simplicity, price advantage and reliability.
