Allcargo Group has appointed logistics and supply chain industry veteran Ketan Kulkarni as Chief Growth Officer.

Kulkarni will be closely working with the Chairman’s office to strengthen the overall growth and operational efficiency at Allcargo Group, says an official release. "He will lead the process of stakeholder value creation across multiple businesses through periodic engagement with the respective leadership teams of Allcargo ECU (as per proposed scheme of arrangement, the international supply chain business will be demerged into Allcargo ECU), Allcargo Gati, Allcargo Supply Chain and Allcargo Terminals."

Kulkarni will also be responsible for managing investor relations on behalf of Allcargo Group's key management professionals with a focus on shareholder value creation, the release added. He will report to Shashi Kiran Shetty, Founder and Chairman, Allcargo Group.

Kulkarni joins Allcargo Group with over three decades of experience, and his last assignment was with Blue Dart Express (DHL Group) as Chief Commercial Officer, the release added.

"I am delighted to have Ketan in the leadership team," says Shetty. "His proven track record, remarkable achievements and deeper understanding of the logistics industry will help us navigate our company towards the next phase of growth. As we are empowering our flagship businesses with strategic independence and operational synergies, his experience and expertise complement our goal to drive synergistic growth to gain higher market share organically by leveraging our existing network and resources in India and overseas. We continue to optimise physical assets, capitalise on our tremendous brand value while continuing to be an employer of choice, all so painstakingly built over the last four decades. We are dedicated to strengthening our team and supporting the government’s continued efforts to develop superior logistics infrastructure, thus playing our role in the mission to transform our country into Viksit Bharat. Our leadership is fully committed to driving Allcargo Gati's mission towards becoming the largest domestic logistics player, similarly to the group's established leadership in the international supply chain through Allcargo ECU and CFS/ICD infrastructure through Allcargo Terminals in the country. I welcome Ketan to the Allcargo family and we wish him success in his new role. Under his leadership, our growth strategies will deliver superior value to our customers."

Kulkarni adds: "I am excited to be a part of Allcargo Group known for its integrated logistics capabilities and unmatched global scale. The Group has firmly established its leadership position in the international supply chain segment and is poised for accelerated growth with unparalleled digital and operational competencies. It's a privilege for me to be part of the growth journey of the Group and I look forward to collaborating with the leadership teams to further propel Allcargo Group's growth keeping the customer interest and sustainability in sharp focus."
