Tell us about the history of your company?
Anil Mantra was founded in 2007 with Founder Director, Ms. Sunila Yadav. In the year 2009, the company was reconstituted as a private limited company. The Anil Mantra Group with headquarters in Delhi was incorporated with the aim to provide services aiming at long-term relationships with clients in the field of Logistics and Supply Chain Management. We take pride in providing tailor-made, quality services for our customers, be it sea freight, airfreight or 3rd country exports. We continue to provide efficient and prompt services in the field of logistics and supply chain under a “SINGLE WINDOW”, while catering to the ever-increasing sophisticated and evolving needs of international trade through customized solutions and seamless integrated information systems.
The Anil Mantra group has completed 13 years of serving tirelessly, with trust being the driving force for the company since inception. We now strive for a global imprint and have recently opened our office in Kazakhstan- Almaty & Atyrau, providing logistics solutions to customers to reach this sector via air, sea, road and rail.
I understand that you are active in project cargo by sea but also aviation chartering. Can you tell us more?
As a logistics company, we handle and service airfreight and sea freight shipments routinely. Yet, we never shy away from going the extra mile and leaving no stone unturned in giving solutions to the customer and partners. Air Charters is one of the solutions that we offer to the clients as per the requirement—full or part charter. In the last few years, we have given this solution to many customers from industries of oil and gas, mining and even DG shipments. In all these cases, we have successfully honoured the faith put in us.
India has a lot of freight forwarders. What makes you stand out as the reliable choice?
As you yourself said, RELIABILITY is the factor that makes us the choice. As our motto says – MANTRA OF TRUST. We are the ones who can be trusted for solutions, payments, and handling of your cargo. Boundaries don’t limit us when we take it upon ourselves to come up with a solution. Neither does it matter how big or small the cargo is. Our dedication and hard work is the same. We know the customer’s trust in us is the reason they have chosen us, and we strive to keep that trust intact.
India has many ports and airports. Could you tell our readers about the main ports and airports that are being used for, shall we say, general cargo and project cargo?

India’s infrastructure is now developing rapidly. Can you confirm that this is still ongoing and that India is “opening up” so to speak?
The Indian economy has been banking heavily on infrastructure development for quite some time now. Successive governments have realised the importance of the same, along with the fact that India is on the brink of a transformation in this sector in view of the robust demand and opportunities. The policies being formulated and followed are indicative of the conscious effort being made by the government in this regard. Highways, urban transport, and energy are all areas where the push is quite visible. The world is taking notice, and there seems to be a well laid out path now for accomplishing the targets set. Investments in these areas have poured in, and it is but a fact that Foreign Direct Investments (FDI’s) are necessarily a corollary of sound policies and a will to implement them. The future of this sector is definitely something that looks quite promising.
India is famous for many things. When tourism is back and is again allowed after COVID-19 where would you recommend people to go? Could you tell our readers some perhaps “not so well-known gems” of your country?
