Reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the environmental impact of nationwide transportation and logistics.


At Gati, India’s premier express distribution company, we have partnered with several EV manufacturers and EV aggregators to test and evaluate different EV models for its fleet pan-India.

We have targeted to convert our entire pick-up and delivery fleet to alternative fuel by 2025.


Significant reduction in carbon emissions and operating costs, and improvement in the overall efficiency of our logistics operations.

Strong, purpose-driven collaborations with marquee industry players who we have partnered with to help them achieve their respective sustainability goals.

We actively promote the use of EVs and outlay the financial and environmental benefits to our trucking partners or Gati associates (GAs).

The load-carrying capacity of EVs used was more than 1600 tonnes, which helped us to reduce carbon emissions by more than 25,000 tCO2.

Enable skill-building and employability opportunities for underprivileged youth as well as bridge the skill gap of the logistics industry.


We collaborated with our CSR arm, Avashya Foundation, to create an initiative called Nipun, dedicated to upskilling individuals. Nipun enables skill development for the youth across vulnerable socio-economic levels in the state of Maharashtra.

As a part of the national skill mission, Allcargo launched its skill training as a part of the Allcargo Skill Development Centre (ASDC) which is located in the TransIndia premises in Khopta village, Uran, in FY 2015-16.

Since then, ASDC has been imparting skill training in logistics and allied sectors based on local needs as well as industry-demanded courses.

In 2019, Allcargo signed an MoU with JNPT–CIDCO to operate the Pradhan Mantri Kaushalya Kendra (PMKK) scheme for Maritime Logistics and Port Sector Skill Development.


The Ministry of Port, Shipping and Waterways Joint Secretary praised the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority (JNPA) for successfully running the skill centre.

The model of JNPA-CIDCO-Allcargo skill centre is to now be replicated across ports in India. Officials from Visakhapatnam, Marmagoa, Chennai, Vadhvan, and Kandla port have visited the Allcargo skill centre to understand the model and its success.

Based on industry demands new courses like Data Entry Operator, Assistant Beauty Therapist, Account Executive, Fireman Training, etc. have been added to skilling basket in Belapur and Uran centers. This is in addition to logistics-related courses like Heavy Vehicle Driver, Consignment Booking Assistant, Consignment Tracking Executive, Documentation Assistance, Inventory Clerk, Warehouse Picker, etc.

We have successfully trained more the 2000 youths in different streams.

Employment opportunities provided to more than 1200 youths under CSR and various other schemes.

We have been awarded by JNPA – Special Recognition for Smooth & Efficient Running of JNPA-CIDCO-ALLCARGO Multi-Skill Development Centre under PMKVY at JN Port 2022-2023.

As part of our Project NEEV at Gati, unit-wise representatives from different functions gather every month to discuss and implement ideas across a vast array of topics such as productivity improvement, process improvement, savings related to cost, L&D improvement ideas, employee engagement related initiatives, infrastructure & hygiene factors. This initiative aimed at inclusive participation from employees, business associates and handlers across India, gives them a platform to share innovative ideas and play an active role in decision-making.

As part of the ECU Worldwide Entrepreneurship Challenge, employees from various departments came together and shared their innovative ideas within any 2 of the 5 criteria (Cost Effectiveness, Process Elimination / Improvement, Profit Maximisation, Possibility of implementation, Uniqueness). Winners got the opportunity to work alongside the relevant department and implement their idea into action.

Since 2017, Nordicon, an ECU Worldwide company, has partnered with IT For Children, a Swedish non-profit operating in Ghana, to promote positive development in African countries through the donation, inspection, and shipment of used laptops, providing free access to computers, internet, and IT education for hundreds of school children. Nordicon actively supports IT For Children’s mission by offering free transportation for donated computers and engaging with industry partners to contribute used computers or financial support, furthering the organization’s efforts to empower African communities through technology.

Nordicon supports the Halmstad University Solar Team, a non-profit student organization in Sweden, dedicated to creating a sustainable future for the automotive industry. They are developing a solar-powered racing car to compete in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, a 3000 km race across Australia. As part of its sponsorship, Nordicon in Sweden, plays a crucial role by sponsoring the transportation of the solar car to and from Australia. This support aligns with the team’s goal of revolutionizing the automotive industry and promoting the transition to completely fossil-free vehicles.
