Mahindra Logistics

When the largest logistics company in India comes to aid, we do make a difference

Overview

We believe that while the growth and success of our business if our priority, we can reach our greater goals only if we cater to the needs of the communities where we operate.

We empower communities to rise – through building the livelihood of our driver partners, uplifting the basic necessities of villages, and creating awareness on hygiene and safety.

We strive to walk the extra mile to build societies with equitable development. Take a look at the community development initiatives we undertook in FY 2020:

CSR

Village Adoption Programme

Through Gram Vikas Yojana, we adopted the Tembha village in 2017. With a population of 5,100, 70% of which is tribal, Tembha had multiple social issues and the villagers had suffered for years from the lack of necessities. Since then, we have undertaken various activities to empower the villagers and uplift the village. In the last fiscal, we initiated various developmental activities in the village.

We had identified 18 hamlets facing water shortage in the village during summer. Between FY 2019 and FY 2020, we successfully completed the water supply project in 15 hamlets, by pumping the backwater from Vaitarna dam to the hamlets and also through the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) water supply pipelines passing by some hamlets. We also built the Vanrai damn to reduce water scarcity.

Our other initiatives
DRIVER WELFARE

Samantar is a holistic driver welfare programme designed to improve the working conditions of the driver community. The Driver Welfare Forums, comprising our business associates field experts and NGOs, do a need assessment to ensure that the project will help the drivers. The project has been structured to address three major challenges faced by the drivers:

1. Lack of proper facilities

We provided facilities such as rest-rooms, en-route sanitation, drinking water and medical check-ups and also ensured they spent time with their families during festivals.

2. Lack of dignity and respect

We launched various awareness programmes to educate all employees and security personnel to treat drivers with
respect. We also encourage drivers to discuss issues and challenges with senior personnel through programmes such as Chai Pe Charcha.

3. Poor skills

We are conducting various skill development programmes for our drivers, such as:

  • Awareness campaigns on importance of wearing seat belts, and following road signage and personal hygiene
  • Safety training
  • Defensive driving training
  • Vehicle maintenance
  • Mobile friendliness

We continued certifying drivers and third-party employees under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) on driving skills and warehousing skills, where their prior competencies are assessed and on successful completion, candidates receive a monetary reward, mark sheet and government certificate.
