Canadian freight forwarder FFAF Cargo is moving forward with expansion in Asia following the launch of a subsidiary in India in the last quarter of 2022.

FFAF Logistics India has been launched as India continues to develop in diverse industries, said FFAF Cargo, a subsidiary of Flying Fresh Air Freight.

Karthi Baskar has been appointed managing director and a head office has been opened in Bangalore, as well as regional offices in Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi.

The company also plans to set up offices in Hyderabad, Pune & Ahmedabad in the second quarter of the next financial year.

FFAF Cargo said services in the Indian market consist of airfreight, oceanfreight, surface logistics, warehousing, project handling and customs brokerage service with control tower support.

Industry focuses will include perishable & cold chain solutions, aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, retail, electronics, high technology and manufacturing. 

Brendan Harnett, group chairman, said: “This is part of our global expansion and supporting our customer outreach to the Asia region. Our newest venture in India reflects our long-term vision of being integral to our client’s logistics solution through innovation and exceptional customer service.”

Nelson Coe, executive chairman of FFAF Logistics India and chief executive of FFAF Cargo US, explained that the establishment of the subsidiary is expected to help accelerate the company’s expansion of India to Canada & America’s trade lane developments.

“Our strong success is in air freight products globally,” said Coe. “Our plan for India would be to have a strong presence with lean management, cost optimisation and leading the sustainability initiatives. We like to express our sincere appreciation to all our customers who have been part of our global journey and request their support for us in India.”
