We attribute this to company's continuous focus on high margin businesses and multi-modal solutions by harnessing synergistic benefits from rail, road & sea and providing specialised integrated supply chain solutions."

Agarwal said it has been three months since GST implementation and the new tax regime has been well embraced by some of industry verticals, while few other organised, unorganised and SME sectors have got slow start which is witnessed in economic activities this quarter.

He added, "We looked at GST readiness as an opportunity to stand out from rest of the industry as in supporting customers and suppliers. We expect second half of the year to be better given the trend of higher business volume."
