The current meltdown in the economic scenario and demonetisation has left the logistic sector stranded. With increase in supply and decrease in demand worldwide, even logistics companies are looking for ways to establish affirmative ties with their clients to ensure a long term business association. With the philosophy of ‘always believe in relationship as priority and rest follows’, Ketan Dholakia, Founder, KS Group, over the time has forged deep and extensive network of trust with his clients and company stakeholders. Being a service oriented establishment, KS Group plays the role of a medium between the shipping industry and the clients, and aids in the services of international freight forwarding, warehousing, door-to-door delivery and more. Being a one-window solution provider gives a peace of mind to customers, where now they don’t have to stop at different companies for different services like transportation, freight and custom clearance. Despite being a young gun, the company has created an impressive clientele ranging from multinationals to traders, providing uniform and distinguished assistance in handling international freight forwarding , exhibition cargoes, project logistics, and domestic & coastal movements.

Time is no criterion for progress and KS Group proves this.

Additionally, taking note of the importance of custom clearance and warehousing, KS Group undertakes the charge of custom clearance and warehousing, and handles the paperwork without causing any loss of time or capital.

Experience Leading the Way

As per Ketan, “We have the knowledge to solve any kind of complexities that our customers might have, but honestly we don’t rant. We always try to find a lead in the customer, which we can build upon”. Backed by decades of knowledge and expertise, it is easy to fathom that KS Group has achieved top line revenue of Rs.12 crore in a short span of six months. With the vision set on expanding its business model, the founder is keen on becoming NVOCC and incorporate IT assistance to enable a complete in-house logistic system. With eyes set on becoming Rs.100 crore organization within four years, KS Group now targets blue chip companies on a regular pay basis. “There is a huge scope for any person entering the industry today and if they align themselves in tune with the market, then sky is the limit. And to reach this limit, we look for investment in the near future,” concludes Ketan.
