After conducting a thorough research across all the segments of the Indian Logistic sector ­ industry veterans Avinash Raghav, Abhishek Shukla, and Pranay Agrawal realized that the Indian logistics industry is completely unorganized and undisciplined. Furthermore, the industry stalwarts identified the presence of many players already available in the B2B segment of the Logistic Industry. While on the other hand, the B2C segment is divided into bits and pieces. This is true especially in the case of commercial, as well as, the residential movers and packers segment. This is where Avinash Raghav and co, decided to land in, and tried to cash in on the opportunities prevalent in the scattered movers and packers segment in India by creating a unique platform - Shift Freight.


Arnada Sankar, Country Head

Established in the year 2019, Shift Freight through its platform exclusively caters to the residential movement needs, and in addition, movement needs for corporate employees. "While the B2B Logistic sector is credit driven, the B2C sector on the other hand is a cash only business. Since the need to move goods does not arise a lot, shortlisting reliable vendors could prove to be a rather difficult task," explains Abdullah AlZaharani, Founder, Mentor & Investor, Shift Freight. Moreover, the average Indian consumers are not aware of the movement prizes prevailing in the market. This is precisely where Shift Freight comes in with a unique platform that serves as a marketplace for both the vendors and the customers alike.

The company shortlists its reliable vendors in the movers and packers segment, and then proceeds by giving the appropriate training to the vendors in a bid to make the segment much more systematic and organized. Shift Freight through its platform offers trained and certified vendors for all residential movement needs regardless of the volume and needs ranging from domestic and household shifting to commercial as well as vehicle shifting. All the services are offered at very competitive prizes, and without compromising the Quality of Services (QoS) at the same time.

An Advanced Logistic Platform
At the core of Shift Freight's innovative platform is a dedicated team of 50 plus technocrats supervised by Abhishek Shukla, CIO. The platform operates in a bidding system whereby any order from the consumer is broadcasted to all the registered certified vendors under Shift Freight. The team at Shift Freight picks the vendor with the most viable bid, and offering the best competitive prizes to the customer for the successful completion of a particular order.
The team at Shift Freight after the successful facilitation of an order acts as mediators between the vendors and the customers right from the starting point to the last mile delivery. At present, the company has more than 150 vendors under its banner spread across 10 Indian cities. In this way, Shift Freight makes sure that the Quality of Services (QoS) is maintained by freeing up the customers from all the unnecessary hassles involved in the shifting process.

In addition to that, Shift Freight's platform provides SMS and Payment gateways across all the mediums including mobile systems, giving the customers the much-needed flexibility in the payment process. And, unlike other movers and packers, customers are able to track down the movement of their goods, giving consumers much needed transparency and scalability which is seriously lacking in the segment.

Conquering the Indian B2C Segment
With a unique set of services that fills all the necessary gaps prevalent in the packers and movers domain, Shift Freight has grown in leaps and bound since its first month of operation back in June, 2020. Within a span of just six months between June 2020 to December 2020, the company has witnessed an unprecedented growth of orders; over 100 percent every month, that has enabled the company to expand its footprint over 10 more Indian cities from initially-serving NCR clients. So far, Shift Freight has served over 1500 movement orders, and at present, the company completes 1000 plus orders on a monthly basis.


Chandan Kumar, Zonal Manager

In a short duration of its existence the company has garnered a considerable foothold over the entire movers and packers segment in India. Despite such a robust growth, Avinash Raghav reminds us about the immense scope of improvement in the sector with more than half a million potential customers out there to be reached. And, as such, the core team at Shift Freight has plans to expand operations across 50 Indian cities by the end of 2021. Emphasizing on the future goals Pranay Agrawal, COO says, "We will have almost more than 5000 fleets running by 2022 for the moversandpackers who will be working exclusively for us". He further adds, "As a strategy we have only one - that is to work on the quality of services (QoS). Consumer satisfaction is our principal future objective".
