In December 2017, EFL (Expo Freight) a leading logistics provider in the subcontinent created history when it helped to transfer a shipment that went directly from India to Jamaica. The movement is significant because the 91.5 Tonnes piece has been identified as the heaviest single piece of cargo to move out of Mumbai airport ever and quite possibly one of the heaviest ever single piece civilian lift ex India. The cargo left on 20th December 2017 and made its way via a route that spans across two oceans and 14, 717 kilometers. This was the very first direct charter between these two destinations and is in alignment with EFL’s global ‘Dare to Do’ vision that encourages all employees to think big, innovate continuously and make their mark as pioneers in the logistics industry.
Having started in Sri Lanka, EFL first ventured overseas in 1993 entering Bangladesh and since then has established over 63 offices in strategic locations across the globe. With recent expansions in USA, the company aims to strengthen speed and flexibility in their offerings leading to more efficiencies throughout the supply chain.
Since 1982, EFL has set itself on par with international contemporaries by focusing on consistently delivering flexible and customized solutions to complex and time-constrained logistical needs. The company thrives on establishing its presence in regions with weak infrastructure, operating in countries such as Cambodia, Myanmar and parts of Africa to deliver speed to market solutions for buyers in the US and Europe. It is a member of Expolanka Holdings PLC and now a part of the larger SG Holdings Group, a leading logistics group in Japan.
