August 20, 2020: The express logistics company, Spoton Logistics today announced Uday Sharma as its chief operating officer.

“In his earlier role as director of sales at Spoton, Uday is credited with driving the company above industry average growth and profitability, and successful foray into high-value market segments including SME, e-commerce and lifestyle. As COO, Uday will assume greater charge of the company’s day-to-day sales and service delivery operations and will continue to report directly to Abhik Mitra, MD & CEO, Spoton Logistics,” said the release.

As COO, Uday will have direct responsibility for the company’s sales & service delivery operations, demand planning, vendor alliances, and business process management. Uday has over two decades of express logistics industry experience, prior to joining Spoton almost a decade ago, having served with Aramex and Safexpress.

Abhik Mitra, MD, and CEO, Spoton Logistics, said, “Uday’s exceptional leadership style is a key factor in building Spoton into a major express logistics service provider. Whilst driving accelerated growth across all key markets, he has also helped achieve strong account receivables discipline, great operational service levels with high-cost efficiency and a larger marquee accounts portfolio. With his razor-sharp focus on service delivery excellence, I have tremendous confidence in his ability to execute Spoton’s next level of accelerated profitable growth.”

Gautam Gode, director, Spoton Logistics, said, “Spoton’s high growth strategy, including planned big-ticket investments in technology and engineering, and foray into high-value business segments through M&A, has enabled it to break out decisively from the pack of industry leaders. Uday’s elevation will help consolidate this breakout and enable senior leadership to bring even greater focus on these initiatives.”

In FY 2019-20, notwithstanding an economic slowdown in Q1 and Q2, Spoton Logistics recorded an above industry average growth in excess of 17% year-on-year. The company also made a foray in to 3PL business, acquiring a majority stake in Chennai based RTS Logistics, funded from its own internal accruals.
