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. Here are some of our community development initiatives.

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. 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.

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.
