CJ Darcl Logistics signs MoU with Tata Motors to explore sustainable operations

Logistic company CJ Darcl Logistics Limited on Thursday announced signing a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tata Motors  to strengthen and enhance CJ Darcl’s fleet of vehicles and explore options for logistics services. 

In a statement, the company said that post-MoU, the companies would deliberate on possibilities to enhance CJ Darcl’s fleet and make their operations greener. The engagement also intends to make CJ Darcl’s operations more efficient with comprehensive annual maintenance contracts, a dedicated service team, and streamlined after-sales processes. 

Kang Sin Ho, CEO of CJ Logistics Corporation, said, “India has been a dynamic market for logistics and is anticipated to remain a growth outperformer. According to CRISIL MI&A, India’s GDP is expected to grow at an average of 6.1% between fiscal 2025 and 2027, compared with 3.1% globally, as estimated by the International Monetary Fund. In this direction, the Indian government introduced the Gati Shakti Scheme, National Logistics Policy, Bharatmala Pariyojana, and Sagarmala, which became the key enablers of logistics in India. Further to bolster our efforts to provide logistics solutions, we have collaborated with Tata Motors Limited. This is aimed at bringing operational efficiency to the forefront. The engagement will focus on evaluating cost-effective vehicle deployment to strengthen CJ Darcl’s fleet, whilst providing on-ground support.”

Krishan Kumar Agarwal, Managing Director of CJ Darcl Logistics said, “We are delighted to announce the strategic alliance between CJ Darcl Logistics and Tata Motors Limited. This will help the company in procurement of trucks in the next 5 years and improve the vehicle management system, subsequently paving the way for the use of alternative fuel vehicles”.

Commenting on the momentous occasion,  Rajesh Kaul, Vice President and Business Head, Trucks, Tata Motors, said, “At Tata Motors, we aim to create and deliver value while keeping in mind the evolving needs of our customers. This MoU is a cornerstone in our commitment to revolutionise the transportation industry. Tata Motors trucks are engineered with a focus on offering a low total cost of ownership with efficient powertrains, are equipped with state-of-the-art features like an advanced telematics system (Fleet Edge), and come with value additions that ensure the highest uptime for higher profitability for our customers. With CJ Darcl, we are poised to redefine the landscape of transportation, fostering innovation and efficiency.”
