Indian airfreight industry is leading world cargo today: H K Vithalani

Chairman of the airline representation company Global Group, H K Vithalani was awarded the Rashtriya Udyog Ratan Award in Delhi for his contribution to the aviation industry in India.

In a exclusive response to Indian Transport & Logistics News (, he noted that the Indian airfreight industry is leading the world cargo today, be it pharma, machinery, garments, perishables or spares.

“My trade compatriots are one of the finest in the world air freight industry. Astute minds offering the best solutions to the customers with innovation at every step – should best describe the community. I am not saying that logistics leaders are only in India, but our Indian skills are on par with the best in the global industry. This is evident in world forums, be it Munich, Shanghai, the US or in Asia,” he said.

The Global Group is into airline representation (cargo & passenger), transportation, travel & logistics services to Indian and international clients.

The award event was held in New Delhi, at The Constitutional Club of India where the NATIONAL Achievers Recognition Forum felicitated 30 personalities across India who has done some outstanding work in the fields of Medical Sciences, Health, Education, Public Services, Industry, Business Development & Excellence and Social Work.

Regarding how the air cargo industry is transforming he highlighted the importance of automation and technology make the operations fast. “Back in the 70s, when I started Global, most of the work was done on the telephone, typewriter, perhaps a dictaphone and being hands-on at the airport. Today with automation, things are done at the speed of light. The processes have become more refined and efficient. Connectivity around the world has come at our fingertips. Not forgetting communication that has achieved flash speed. There is automation from reservations, bookings management, pricing, the flow of information, cargo handling and loading onto the aircraft. Not just that, but once the cargo has reached the destination, the same automation takes over for last-mile delivery,” he said.’
