August 30, 2018:Mahindra Logistics (MLL), one of India's largest Third-party logistics (3PL) solution providers, today announced the acquisition of a strategic stake in Transtech Logistics, also known as ShipX.

With our asset light business model, we are already like a 'platform'. The strengthening of our relationship with Shipx opens up a new opportunity to take this to the next level."

Mr. Amarnath Kalale, Co-Founder of Transtech, said "MLL has been our most valuable customer for more than 3 years. This investment will help us in developing more product features and strengthening the organization."
