SHAL Group has crossed many a milestone since its launch in 1997.Driven by its strong desire to excel, the group has constantly evolved into a bigger player. The growth has also meant newer services, more manpower and greater competency as a logistics provider. SHAL Group provides a wide range of services to its clients today. And these services are recognised for their affordable rates as much as for their quality.
SHAL Group began its journey as Chennai Cargo Company, providing custom clearing and forwarding services at the port of Chennai from the time of its inception. Helped by a growing customer base, the company was able to secure 80 per cent of the LCL originating from Chennai and destined to Malaysia and Sri Lanka.
Aiming to move up the value-ladder, Sea Hawk Lines Pvt Ltd was launched in 2002. With the new company, the group commenced operations as LCL Consolidator and Steamer Agent. To complement the company's Indian operations, Sea Hawk Global Lines, was floated in Malaysia in 2003. And the Malaysian subsidiary started handling the deconsolidation services. To extend the group's services nationwide, a branch office was opened in Mumbai in 2004.
As part of the group's continued up-gradation, Sea Hawk Lines commenced NVOCC operations in 2004. And Chennai Cargo Company began to operate under a new name, Hawk Logistics from 2004. The company today has separate divisions for Sea Cargo and Air Cargo. While the Sea Cargo division provides Custom Clearance Services, the Air Cargo division offers Custom Clearance and Freighting Services.
