We hope to build upon these relationships to be their long-term partners as they scale manifold in a sustainable manner.”

Freightwalla was founded in 2016 by Sanjay Bhatia, Punit Java, and Bharat Thanvi, and runs a tech-enabled freight forwarding and logistics gateway that gives planning, booking, tracking, and automated documentation services for international freight shipments.
