AWL is one of India’s fastest growing MSME supply chain management company with transport and warehousing facilities in over 70 countries. They are one of the key supply chain vendors empaneled under the Government of India and are working towards building a seamless PAN India supply chain network of ambient and temperature-controlled warehouses to deliver COVID-19 equipment like oxygen cylinders, concentrators, medicines, and vaccines.

With SAMRIDH’s support, AWL will be expanding their ambient and cold storage supply chain network for enhancing its distribution capabilities to more than 350+ location for ambient temperature cargo and around 50 locations for temperature-controlled cargo. This objective is to reduce logistics cost – from the current supply chain mark-up of 18-20 % down to 10-12% through reduced wastage of critical medicines and vaccines by distribution of temperature-controlled cargo through AWL’s supply chain network. AWL is expanding its temperature-controlled supply chain network to more than 8 locations and ambient cargo supply chain network to 70 locations. The aim and objective are to expand in the hilly, tribal areas of the seven states in northeast India which have low penetration of logistic services – Assam, Tripura, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh. The program estimates to reach 60 million people through its services.
