October 30, 2021: Transport Corporation of India (TCI), a leading supply chain and logistics solutions provider, nearly tripled consolidated net profit to Rs 124 crore for the first six months of the financial year 2022 compared to Rs 42 crore in H1FY21 on growth in all services and solutions.

“The demand for our coastal and rail multimodal end-to-end solutions witnessed momentum enabling customers to save on their carbon footprint,” said Vineet Agarwal, managing director, TCI. “The last quarter, most of the industry sectors have reported growth resulting in good traction for all our services and solutions.”

While consolidated revenue from operations was up 38 percent to 1,521 crore, the net profit margin increased to 8.1 percent compared to 3.8 percent in H1FY21.

“We see an upswing for 3PL and warehousing services as customers push for efficiencies and integrated single-window solutions across the value chain,” Agarwal added.

The board of directors also announced an interim dividend of 100 percent (₹2 per equity share of face value of ₹2).

"We currently have a capex plan of ₹200 crore for FY22, which is going into the purchase of a ship, containers, railway rakes, trucks and warehousing assets," Agarwal added.
